Cosmological Parameter Forecasts with Weak Gravitational Lensing (Lambert Academic Publishing, 2010)

Modern concordance cosmology is faced with two tasks: Accounting for the abundance of the known constituents, and determining the nature of the unknown components – dark matter and dark energy. The initial conditions which led to structure formation pose another important question. This work studies the potential of weak gravitational lensing to determine the nature of dark energy through its equation of state and its evolution, and to advance our understanding of the distribution of the primordial density fluctuations. This book should be helpful to astrophysicists working in the field of weak lensing, and to the wider community of observational cosmologists.
