WHY? Lensing depends on r Selection depends on sky position and r Photo-z radial error Lensing – mass relation is relatively simple Spectral: avoid highly nonlinear regime (high k) WMAP+2dFGRS results Major questions What is the Dark Matter? What is the Dark Energy/Λ? G - g = T G = T + g Scalar field? Quintessence: CMB and Cosmic Shear CMB has had phenomenal success because Physics of the CMB is well- understood and simple. CMB observables are sensitive to cosmological parameters Systematics (e.g. foregrounds) can be controlled Weak lensing physics is even simpler Observables are predictable robustly ab initio Observables sensitive to equation of state of Dark Energy (with 3D analysis) Systematics controllable Pros and cons Supernovae: standard candles? Clusters: physics far from understood Baryon wiggles: trust that wiggles in matter spectrum are reflected in galaxy power spectrum; need very large, deep samples 3D weak lensing: physics well understood; needs very good control of optical quality Lensing physics 2 2 ds 2 = 1 + 2 c 2 dt 2 - R 2 (t )1 - 2 dl 2 c c
