"Zeroing in on cosmological parameters"
ABSTRACT:
I describe the sharp constraints on cosmological paramaters placed by recent measurements of the cosmic microwave background, distant supernovae, galaxy clustering, etc., and how different types of measurements how allow powerful cross-checks to be made. I also comment on outstanding puzzles in the emerging cosmological "standard model" and upcoming measurements that may resolve them.
