# Last stand before WMAP: Cosmological parameters from lensing, CMB, and galaxy clustering

@article{Wang2003LastSB, title={Last stand before WMAP: Cosmological parameters from lensing, CMB, and galaxy clustering}, author={Xiaomin Wang and Max Tegmark and B. Jain and Matias Zaldarriaga}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2003}, volume={68}, pages={123001} }

Cosmic shear measurements have now improved to the point where they deserve to be treated on par with cosmic microwave background (CMB) and galaxy clustering data for cosmological parameter analysis, using the full measured aperture mass variance curve rather than a mere phenomenological parametrization thereof. We perform a detailed 9-parameter analysis of recent lensing [the Red Sequence Cluster Survey (RCS)], CMB (up to Archeops) and galaxy clustering (2dF Collaboration) data, both… Expand
