Today, Cosmology and Synergy chapters of the new Square Kilometre Array Science Book were released at arXiv.org. These include chapters written and co-authored by ICG researchers Roy Maartens (University of Western Cape and Portsmouth, chair of the SKA Cosmology Science Working Group), David Bacon, Gong-bo Zhao and Alkistis Pourtsidou. Chapters with Portsmouth contributions include:
Cosmology with the SKA – Overview, Maartens et al.
Model-independent constraints on dark energy and modified gravity with the SKA, Zhao et al.
Synergy between the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope and the Square Kilometre Array, Bacon et al.
Cosmology on the largest scales with the SKA, Camera et al.
Cosmology with a SKA HI intensity mapping survey, Santos et al.
Cosmology with HI galaxy surveys with the SKA, Abdalla et al.
Cosmology with SKA radio continuum surveys, Jarvis et al.
Euclid and SKA synergies, Kitching et al.
Measuring redshift space distortions with future SKA surveys, Raccanelli et al.
Testing foundations of modern cosmology with SKA all-sky surveys, Schwarz et al.
Weak gravitational lensing with the SKA, Brown et al.
Weak lensing simulations for the SKA, Patel et al.
These chapters will help to set the agenda for SKA science in the coming decade.
