Angular Power Spectrum

The file deep_windows.tar.gz (compressed tar file) contains 14 files, one for each band:
* joint_3deep_std2_best_window_* (7 files).
* joint_3deep_alt2_best_window_* (6 files).
* joint_3deep_bigbin_best_window_5 (1 file).
The window functions are tabulated in bins of width 90 in l, i.e., l = 1-90, 91-180, ...; and the tabulated values should be divided by 90 to get the quantity plotted in Mason et al.(2003), WB(l)/l.


Fisher Matrix

The fisher (inverse covariance) matrix for the above band powers. This is a 10x10 symmetric matrix stored "flattened" (column or row major) format. The units are 1/uK^2. See, e.g., Bond, R., Jaffe, A. H., and Knox, L., 1998, Phys. Rev. D 57, 2117.


Offset Lognormal Parameters

Parameters needed for the offset lognormal ansatz for the likelihood; see Bond, R., Jaffe, A. H., and Knox, L., 2000, ApJ 533, 19. For each bin, the file gives x_bin in uK^2.


L-Bins for Bandpowers

The list of l bins used in calculating the band powers. This file is in the format required for the MADCAP software package.


Window Function Uncertainty

Fractional uncertainty in the power in each bin due to the uncertainty in the beam measurement, see Wu, J.H.P. et al., 2001, ApJS, 132, 1. For each band, the columns are the + and -1 sigma fractional errors, respectively.


Beam and Pixel Window Function

Parameters needed for the offset lognormal ansatz for the likelihood; see Bond, R., Jaffe, A. H., and Knox, L., 2000, ApJ 533, 19. For each bin, the file gives x_bin in uK^2.
