Sultan Hassan (NMSU): Constraining the astrophysics and cosmology from 21cm tomography using deep learning

Seminar | August 19 | 3:10-4 p.m. | 501B Campbell Hall

 Sultan Hassan, New Mexico State University

 Radio Astronomy Lab

Future Square Kilometre Array (SKA) surveys are expected to generate huge datasets of 21cm maps on cosmological scales from the Epoch of Reionization (EoR). We assess the viability of exploiting machine learning techniques, namely, convolutional neural networks (CNN), to simultaneously estimate the astrophysical and cosmological parameters from 21cm maps from semi-numerical simulations. We...   More >
