Archeops

Product Name
CMB Power Spectrum
Mission
ARCHEOPS

Description

These two files (in ASCII and FITS versions) contain the Archeops power spectrum for each of 25 bins. The table contains 6 columns: l_min, l_max, l(l+1)C_l/2pi, total error, statistical error, cosmic variance. Units are uK^2.

Product Name
CMB Covariance Matrix
Mission
ARCHEOPS

Description

These two files (in ASCII and FITS versions) contain the covariance matrix for the Archeops power spectrum (in uK^4). It is a 25x25 matrix describing the 25 bins of the released power spectrum. The error bars for each bin can be computed from the square root of the diagonal of the covariance matrix.

Product Name
CMB Window Functions
Mission
ARCHEOPS

Description

These two files contain the window functions (in ASCII and FITS versions) for the Archeops power spectrum bins. The integral of the window functions are normalized to 1 for each of the 25 bins and are computed between l=0 and l=1000. The table contains a float array with dimension 25 x 1001 (25 columns by 1000 rows). The window functions are defined as follows (with implicit sum over repeated indices):

\begin{displaymath}\mathcal{C}_b=W_\ell^b \left[ \frac{\ell(\ell+1)}{2\pi}C_\ell \right]\end{displaymath}
(1)

In the MASTER framework (Hivon et al., 2002), if we define $\mathcal{M}$ as

\begin{displaymath}\mathcal{M}_{\ell^\prime \ell^{\prime\prime}}=M_{\ell^\prime......\prime\prime}}F_{\ell^{\prime\prime}}B_{\ell^{\prime\prime}}^2\end{displaymath}
(2)

Then the window function reads:

\begin{displaymath}W_\ell^b=\frac{2\pi}{\ell(\ell+1)}\left(P^b_{\ell^\prime}\ma......rime\prime\prime}}\mathcal{M}_{\ell^{\prime\prime\prime} \ell}\end{displaymath}
(3)

Where $P$ and $Q$ are the binning and reciprocal operators.

Using this definition, we have for each bin $b$:

\begin{displaymath}\sum_\ell W_\ell^b=1\end{displaymath}
(4)
