Title: Weak Lensing in the Canada-France Imaging Survey

Presenter: Mike Hudson


The Canada-France Imaging Survey, by virtue of its wide area coverage and overlap with SDSS spectroscopy enables unique science: weighing the masses of cosmic web filaments, the tidal stripping of darm matter halos, the emptiness of voids and tests of General Relativity. I will discuss these goals, our customized weak lensing analysis pipelines and present first weak lensing results from the survey.
