Analysis of the WMAP data involved the computation of cosmological parameters assuming a variety of models and including a variety of datasets in addition to the WMAP dataset. The various model/dataset combinations that were tested are displayed in a matrix; the combinations that were analyzed have links in the corresponding cells to individual display pages that show the cosmological parameters computed using that combination of model and dataset. A printable version of each list of parameters is made available as a Postscript file through a link its corresponding the individual display page.
Mnemonics are used to identify the models and datasets in the table and the individual model/dataset displays. The following table translate the mnemonics:
As mentioned previously, each model/dataset combination has an individual display page that shows the WMAP measurements of the cosmological parameters, with a link to a Postscript file showing the same parameters. These display pages also contain links to files containing WMAP's best fit Cl's, best fit matter power spectra, and Monte Carlo Markov Chains. The Markov Chain are supplied in a compressed tarball that contains a README file describing the contents. The spectra files contain:
