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).
08/2017: Added DESY1, and another KiDS450 result.
Sect. 2: Cosmological background
Sect. 5: Measuring weak lensing

 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.
