Weak gravitational lensing has several important effects on the cosmic microwave background (CMB): it changes the CMB power spectra, induces non-Gaussianities, and generates a B-mode polarization. We describe some simple geometric properties of microwave background temperature anisotropies whose expectation values can be derived in cases where the random field of temperature fluctuations is not necessarily a gaussian random field. We explain how these properties may be useful for discriminating between gaussian and non-gaussian : P. Coles.   Analysis of non-Gaussian cosmic microwave background maps based on the N-pdf. for the relation between the temperature fluctuations and the gravitational potential at the Sachs–Wolfe regime. Let us remark that, of course, this model do not pretend to incorporate all the gravitational (like lensing) and non-gravitational effects, due to Cited by: A Semi-Parametric Approach to the Detection of Non-Gaussian Gravitational Wave Stochastic Backgrounds Lionel Martellini1,2, and Tania Regimbau2 1EDHEC-Risk Institute, Promenade des Anglais, BP , Nice Cedex 3, France resulting in the formation of a non-Gaussian background. It has also been shown that the background from cosmic.

The presence of non--Gaussian features in the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) radiation maps represents one of the most long--awaited clues in the search for. The cosmic microwave background radiation is an emission of uniform, black body thermal energy coming from all parts of the sky. The radiation is isotropic to roughly one part in , the root mean square variations are only 18 µK, after subtracting out a dipole anisotropy from the Doppler shift of the background radiation. The latter is caused by the peculiar velocity of the Sun relative.
