& the COSMOS team

Weak lensing two-points statistics: What is measured?

<g2>~0.01 s82 W1.6 zs1.4 q-(n+2)/2

- Mass power spectrum normalisation
- Slope of the power spectrum
- Mean density parameter
- Redshift of the sources

Contaldi et al. 2004

VIRMOS

I~24

Z~0.9

LVW et al.

COSMOS should reach ~ same accuracy with two major differences:

-followups. In particular photoz enables lenses selection, 3D lensing, etc…

-morphology

-depth enables high order statistics despite small FOV.
