Find on this page general information and updates for my recent review article (arXiv:1411.0155) on cosmic shear, Reports on Progress in Physics 78 (2015) 086901 (ads link for twocolumn format).
Fig. 7 of the review article: The quantity $$\Sigma = \sigma_8 \left( \Omega_{\rm m}/0.3 \right)^\alpha$$ as function of publication year.
Updated figure!
02/2015: Added Stripe82 and CFHTLenS peak counts
07/2015: Added DESSV.
06/2016: Added DLS, two more CFHTLenS analyses, DESSV peak counts, and KiDS450.
08/2017: Added DESY1, and another KiDS450 result.
12/2017: Added more KiDS450 and DESY1 results (peak counts, lensing+clustering, densitysplit statistic).
In the
video abstract of the article I talk about cosmic shear and the review for a broader audience.
Additional references, new papers
General papers, new reviews.

 Another weaklensing review has been published by my colleagues Liping Fu and ZuHui Fan (behind a pay wall, not available on the arXiv).

 News on ensemble shape measurement methods:
An implementation of the Bernstein & Armstrong (2014) Bayesian shape method has been published at arXiv:1403.7669. The team that participated at the great3 challenge with the Bayesian inference method “MBI” published their pipeline and results paper, see arXiv:1411.2608.
 Okura & Futamase (arXiv:1405.1539) came up with an estimator of ellipticity that uses 0th instead of 2ndorder moments!
 arXiv:1409.6273 discusses atmospheric chromatic effects for LSST.
 Dust in spiral galaxies as source of shape bias, but also astrophysical probe: arXiv:1411.6724.
