Title: CMBR anisotropy: Theoretical approaches

Abstract

A version of the cosmological perturbation theory based on exact resolution of the energy constraint is developed. In this version, the conformal time is invariant with respect to the diffeomorphisms of general relativity, and the scalar perturbations are the potential ones in accordance with the Dirac minimal surface constraint. The exact resolution gives one a possibility to fulfill the Hamiltonian reduction and to explain the 'CMBR primordial power spectrum' and other problems of modern cosmology by quantization of the energy constraint and cosmological creation of matter.

  • We compute the secondary cosmic microwave background radiation (CMBR) anisotropy signal from the reionization of the Universe in the presence of tangled magnetic fields. We consider the tangled-magnetic-field-induced scalar, vector, and tensor modes for our analysis. The most interesting signal for l < or approx. 100 arises from tensor perturbations. In particular, we show that the enhancement observed by Wilkinson microwave anisotropy probe (WMAP) in the TE cross-correlation signal for l < or approx. 10 could be explained by tensor TE cross correlation from tangled magnetic fields generated during the inflationary epoch for magnetic field strength B{sub 0}{approx_equal}4.5x10{sup -9} Gmore » and magnetic field power spectrum spectral index n{approx_equal}-2.9. Alternatively, a mixture of tensor mode signal with primordial scalar modes gives weaker bounds on the value of the optical depth to the reionization surface, {tau}{sub reion}: {tau}{sub reion}=0.11{+-}0.02. This analysis can also be translated to a limit on magnetic field strength of {approx_equal}5x10{sup -9} G for wave numbers < or approx. 0.05 Mpc{sup -1}.« less
  • In this work we investigate characteristic modifications of the spectrum of cosmological perturbations and the spectral index due to chain inflation. We find two types of effects. First, modifications of the spectral index depending on interactions between radiation and the vacuum, and on features of the effective vacuum potential of the underlying fundamental theory. Second, a modulation of the spectrum signaling new physics due to bubble nucleation. This effect is similar to those of transplanckian physics. Measurements of such signatures could provide a wealth of information on the fundamental physics at the basis of inflation.
  • Weak gravitational lensing of the CMBR manifests as a secondary anisotropy in the temperature maps. The effect, quantified through the shear and convergence fields imprint the underlying large scale structure (LSS), geometry and evolution history of the Universe. It is hence perceived to be an important observational probe of cosmology. De-lensing the CMBR temperature maps is also crucial for detecting the gravitational wave generated B-modes. Future observations of redshifted 21-cm radiation from the cosmological neutral hydrogen (HI) distribution hold the potential of probing the LSS over a large redshift range. We have investigated the correlation between post-reionization HI signal andmore » weak lensing convergence field. Assuming that the HI follows the dark matter distribution, the cross-correlation angular power spectrum at a multipole l is found to be proportional to the cold dark matter power spectrum evaluated at l/r, where r denotes the comoving distance to the redshift where the HI is located. The amplitude of the cross-correlation depends on quantities specific to the HI distribution, growth of perturbations and also the underlying cosmological model. In an ideal situation, we found that a statistically significant detection of the cross-correlation signal is possible. If detected, the cross-correlation signal holds the possibility of a joint estimation of cosmological parameters and also may be used to test various CMBR de-lensing estimators.« less
  • The late-time growth of large scale structures is imprinted in the CMBR anisotropy through the Integrated Sachs Wolfe (ISW) effect. This is perceived to be a very important observational probe of dark energy. Future observations of redshifted 21-cm radiation from the cosmological neutral hydrogen (HI) distribution hold the potential of probing the large scale structure over a large redshift range. We have investigated the possibility of detecting the ISW through cross-correlations between the CMBR anisotropies and redshifted 21-cm observations. Assuming that the HI traces the dark matter, we find that the ISW-HI cross-correlation angular power spectrum at an angular multipolemore » l is proportional to the dark matter power spectrum evaluated at the comoving wave number l/r, where r is the comoving distance to the redshift from which the HI signal originated. The amplitude of the cross-correlation signal depends on parameters related to the HI distribution and the growth of cosmological perturbations. However, the cross-correlation is extremely weak as compared to the CMBR anisotropies and the predicted HI signal. Even in an ideal situation, the cross-correlation signal is smaller than the cosmic variance and a statistically significant detection is not very likely.« less
