Bandpowers and Uncertainties
Mission
BICEP2

Description

Text files that collectively contain the bandpowers and statistical uncertainties for spectra from BICEP2/Keck Array maps at 150 GHz and Planck maps at 353 GHz, corresponding to Figure 2 of A Joint Analysis of BICEP2/Keck Array and Planck Data. The uncertainties in these files are the standard deviation of the constrained lensed-ΛCDM+noise simulations and do not include sample variance for any additional BB signal. However, sample variance is correctly accounted for in cosmological parameter fitting e.g. in the multi-component likelihood.
