Max's Cosmic Cinema

Here are some movies that I made to illustrate how the cosmic microwave background (CMB) and galaxy power spectra change when you alter various cosmological parameters. The purpose is to provide some intuition for how we can measure these pesky parameters (as in this paper). Feel free to copy and use these movies as you please. All power spectra where computed with the CMBfast software package. Angelica (my wife) has made some nice CMB polarization movies here. You can find more movies and a nice primer on Wayne Hu's CMB site. I have a summary of all CMB experiments here.
