[86.02] Cosmology from the latest CBI and BOOMERanG results

C. R. Contaldi (CITA), CBI/BOOMERanG Collaboration

We present the latest results from the BOOMERanG and CBI experiments which chart the angular power spectrum of the Cosmological Microwave Background anisotropies upto multipoles \ell = 3500 .

We investigate the cosmological parameters obtained by including the new data in our parameter fits to a host of CMB datasets. We show how the CMB strongly constrains the curvature of the Universe, the baryon density and the tilt of the primordial power spectrum. We also show how including external constraints from various experiments can help to significantly constrain the density of cold dark matter and cosmological constant.
