WP6 – Component Separation



Produce astrophysical component maps from frequency maps

Description of work

The work in this WP may be split into two main components, namely code development and data analysis. The first stage will consist of integrating the existing Commander component separation code into the new and larger Gibbs sampler. This will mostly involve interfacing existing routines with the new infrastructure. The second part will be to actually run the code, improving existing foreground models. This work package will also be responsible for integration and analysis of external data, including WMAP, C-BASS and Planck HFI.
