Neutrino Masses from LSS

Neutrino Masses from the CMB

(III) The Dark Energy Survey

Ofer Lahav

University College London

- SN Ia
- CMB
- LSS – Baryonic Oscillations
- Cluster counts
- Weak Lensing
- Integrated Sachs Wolfe
Physical effects:

* Geometry

* Growth of Structure

* Why bother? – absolute mass, effect on other parameters

* Brief history of ‘Hot Dark Matter’

* Limits on the total Neutrino mass from cosmology within CDM

M < 1 eV

* Mixed Dark Matter?

* Non-linear power spectrum and biasing – halo model

* Combined cosmological observations and laboratory experiments

- *1970s : Top-down scenario with massive neutrinos (HDM) –
- Zeldovich Pancakes
- *1980s: HDM - Problems with structure formation
- *1990s: Mixed CDM (80%) + HDM (20% )
- * 2000s: Baryons (4%) + CDM (26%) +Lambda (70%):
- But now we know HDM exists!
- How much?

- How is the New Cosmology affected by Globalisation?
- Recall the Cold War era:
Hot Dark Matter/top-down (East)

vs. Cold Dark Matter/bottom-up (West)

- Is the agreement on the `concordance model’ a product of Globalisation?

Neutrinos decoupled when they were still relativistic, hence they wiped out structure on small scales

Colombi, Dodelson, & Widrow 1995

Massive neutrinos mimic

a smaller source term

Thenumber of neutrino species Nn affects

the expansion rate of the universe, hence BBN.

BBN constraints Nn between 1.7 and 3 (95% CL)

(e.g. Barger et al. 2003).

From CMB+LSS+SN Ia, N =4.2+1.2-1.7(95% CL)

(Hannestad 2005)

We shall assume Nn =3

What could cosmic probes tell us about Neutrinos and Dark Energy?

The Growth factor: degeneracy of Neutrinos Mass and Dark Energy

Abazajian & Dodelson (2003)

also Hannestad et al. 2006

Abazajian et al. (astro-ph/0411552)

modeled the effects of neutrino infall

into CDM halos

and incorporated it in the halo model.

The effect is small: P(k)/P(k) » 1%

at k » 0.5 h/Mpc for M» 1 eV

Future work : high-resolution simulations

with CDM, baryons and neutrinos

M =0.3, 0.9, 1.5, 6.0 eV

Fixed cdm = 0.26

E&L 2004

If znr > zrec

h2 > 0.017 (i.e. M > 1.6 eV)

Then neutrinos behave like matter -

this defines a critical value in CMB features

* Ichikawa et al. (2004 )

from WMAP1 alone M < 2.0 eV

* Fukugita et al. (2006)

from WMAP3 alone M < 2.0 eV

Fukugita, Ichikawa,

Kawasaki, OL, astro-ph/0605362

Not directly,

but reduces degeneracy with

the reionization optical depth

All upper limits 95% CL, but different assumed priors !

Note different error definitions and assumed priors !

Fogli et al.

Hep-ph/0408045

Combining KATRIN+CMB (Host, OL, Abdalla & Eitel 2007) =>> Ole’s talk

* Redshift surveys (+ CMB) Mn < 0.7-1.8 eV

Ly- (+ CMB+LSS) Mn < 0.17 eV

* Within the L-CDM scenarios, subject to

priors.

* Alternatives: MDM ruled out.

* Future: errors down to 0.05 eV

using SDSS+Planck,

and weak gravitational lensing of background galaxies and of the CMB.

Resolve the neutrino absolute mass!

DES and a Dark Energy Programme

- * 4-5 complementary probes
- * Survey strategy delivers substantial DE science after 2 years
- * Relatively modest (~ $20-30M), low-risk, near-term project with high discovery potential
- *Synergy with SPT and VISTA on the DETF Stage III timescale
- * Scientific and technical precursor to the more ambitious Stage IV Dark Energy projects to follow: LSST and JDEM

* Vacuum energy

(cosmological constant, w= -1.000 after all ?)

* Dynamical scalar field ?

* Modified gravity ?

* Why /m = 3 ?

* Non-zero Neutrino mass < 1eV ?

* The exact value of the spectral index: n < 1 ?

* Excess power on large scales ?

* Is the curvature zero exactly ?
