Dark energy and the microwave background

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Evidence for dark energy comes from a wide variety of data. Here I discuss the role the CMB anisotropies have had in framing the dark energy problem. After reviewing the physics of the CMB, I discuss the different methods that are used in determining the dark energy’s density, evolution and clustering properties and the crucial role the microwave background plays in all of these methods.
