BIANCHI2 PACKAGE Simulating Bianchi induced temperature fluctuations in CMB maps when incorporating a cosmological constant --------------------------------------------------------------- DESCRIPTION This package provides functionality to support the simulation of Bianchi Type VIIh induced temperature fluctuations in CMB maps of a universe with shear and rotation. The implementation is based on the solutions to the Bianchi models derived by Anthony Lasenby (not yet published) which incorporate a dark energy component. AUTHORS J. D. McEwen (http://www.jasonmcewen.org) A. N. Lasenby T. Josset ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS M. P. Hobson D. J. Mortlock REFERENCE This implementation is based on the solutions to the Bianchi models derived by Anthony Lasenby when incorporating a dark energy component. This work is not yet published and is still to appear. Nevertheless, we make our implementation of these solutions available in this package.
