Searching for Parity Violation in the Planck Data

Project: 
This project will test for parity violation in the bispectrum of the cosmic microwave background using publicly available data from the ESA Planck mission. The first part of the project will be devoted to creating mock data and an estimator and validating this estimator on the mock data. The next part will involve studying how to deal with various non-idealities in the actual data, and finally an analysis of the actual data will be carried out.
