Description

Thermal SZ Bispectrum Templates

These files contain the predicted thermal SZ bispectrum for three different levels of cluster cuts (no clusters cut, clusters above M200(rho_crit)=8e14 Msun/h cut, and clusters above M200(rho_crit)=3e14 Msun/h cut). These predictions were made using the prescription of Bhattacharya et al. (2012, ApJ 760 5).

The bispectrum values for each level of cluster cuts are in a single ascii file. The predicted values are given for each bispectrum bin in which the data bispectrum had nonzero weight (a total of 15,670 bins). For each bin, the file contains the center l value for each of the three sides of the (l1,l2,l3) triangles in that bin and the value of the predicted thermal SZ bispectrum at 150 GHz in uK_cmb^3.

The predicted tSZ bispectrum at 150 GHz for no cluster cut is here.

The predicted tSZ bispectrum at 150 GHz for clusters cut above M200(rho_crit)=8e14 Msun/h is here.

The predicted tSZ bispectrum at 150 GHz for clusters cut above M200(rho_crit)=3e14 Msun/h is here.
