Analysis Challenges in the Precision Cosmology Era
The 2020s will be a decade of cosmological surveys which will enable precision measurements of the late Universe through weak lensing of background galaxies and the cosmic microwave background, and the distribution of galaxies and clusters. The unprecedented data quality and data volume of future surveys will require a new generation of analysis frameworks.
I will introduce some of the analysis concepts currently under development for the joint analysis of data from the Dark Energy Survey and South Pole Telescope, and give an outlook on some of the statistical and computational challenges for the cosmological interpretation of future data sets. Beyond cosmology, I would like to discuss with CCA members directions for validating analysis results in the presence astrophysical uncertainties, and unknowns.
