[12.07] Determination of Cosmological Parameters

S. D. Johnson (Global Science and Technology, Inc/GSFC)

A number of correlation functions of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMBR) fluctuations with different assumptions about the early beginnings of the universe have been derived theoretically and reported in the literature. These correlation functions with some given number of cosmological parameters such as density of baryons, Hubble expansion rate, the cosmological constant, and the total mass-energy density of the Universe should conform to the experimental data within a region of confidence. The goal of this work is to determine the parameters within a certain region of confidence of different correlation functions using the data from different experiments.
