*Compilation of CMB Anisotropy Observations 1992-1999*

Vertical error bars represent
1 sigma uncertainties
and horizontal error bars show the range from l_min to l_max.
The line thickness is inversely proportional to the variance
of each measurement, emphasizing the tighter constraints. All three models
are consistent with the upper limits at the far right, but the Open CDM
model (dotted) is a poor fit to the data, which prefer models
with an acoustic peak near l=200 with an amplitude close to that of
\Lambda CDM (solid).

*WOMBAT Challenge simulation*

This is a CMB anisotropy map
that might be observed by the MAP satellite at 90 GHz, 13' resolution,
containing CMB, instrument noise, and foreground contamination. The
resolution is better than can be represented in a full-page postscript
file. (From the
WOMBAT site).

*Dependence of CMB anisotropy power spectrum on
cosmological parameters*

(Check out
Wayne Hu's site for a full
CMB tutorial.)

*Measurements of the CMB Spectrum*
(From George Smoot's site).

*CMB + Large-Scale Structure for \Lambda CDM*

Compilation of CMB anisotropy detections (boxes) and large-scale structure
observations (points with error bars)
compared to theoretical predictions of standard \Lambda CDM model.
Height of boxes (and error bars) represents
1 sigma uncertainties
and width of boxes shows the full width
at half maximum of each instrument's window function.
