Probing the dark side of the Universe with weak gravitational lensing effects

Li-Ping Fu, Zu-Hui Fan

Abstract


Arising from gravitational deflections of light rays by large-scale structures in the Universe, weak-lensing effects have been recognized as one of the most important probes in cosmological studies. In this paper, we review the main progress in weak-lensing analyses, and discuss the challenges in future investigations aiming to understand the dark side of the Universe with unprecedented precisions.


Keywords


cosmology: dark matter and dark energy — large-scale structure of universe — gravitational lensing
