École Euclid de cosmologie 2017

Date: June 27 - July 8 2017

Venue: Fréjus, France


Lecture ``Weak gravitational lensing'' (Le lentillage gravitationnel), Martin Kilbinger.

Find here links to the lecture notes, TD exercises, "tables rondes" topics, and other information.

  • Resources.
    • A great and detailed introduction to (weak) gravitational lensing are the 2005 Saas Fee lecture notes by Peter Schneider. Download Part I (Introduction to lensing) and Part III (Weak lensing) from my homepage.
    • Check out Sarah Bridle's video lectures on WL from 2014.
  • TD cycle 1+2, Data analysis.
    1.  We will work on a rather large (150 MB) weak-lensing catalogue from the public CFHTLenS web page. During the TD I will show instructions how to create and download this catalogue. For faster access, it will be available on the server during the school, and I will bring a few USB sticks.
      If you like, you can however download the catalogue on your laptop at home. Please have a look at the instructions (available soon).
    2. If you want to do the TD on your laptop, you'll need to download and install athena (the newest version 1.7).
    3.  For one of the bonus TD you'll need a new version of (v 1.8beta). Download it here.
