& 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.


redshift distributions based on the Hubble deep fields

25.<i<27.

Zphot~1.4


Cycle 12 area Polygon masks (ds9 format) are available


PSF anisotropy pattern averaged over cycle 12 chips


Preliminary E and B modes aperture mass


LCDM model with s8=0.8 and zS~1.4


~30 stars per chip


Needs image reprocessing with smaller pixel size?


Star-gal shear aperture correlation


Star-gal shear correlation function


Strong lensing with R. Gavazzi (OMP, Toulouse)


Inverse pixel mapping into the source plane

Singular IS
