Cosmological applications of gravitational lensing

  • Peter Schneider
Part II Large-scale Structure
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 470)

Abstract

The last decade has seen an enormous increase of activity in the field of gravitational lensing, mainly driven by improvements of observational capabilities. I will review the basics of gravitational lens theory, just enough to understand the rest of this contribution, and will then concentrate on several of the main applications in cosmology. Cluster lensing, and weak lensing, will constitute the main part of this review.
