Hi everyone,
I just have one simple question question, I want to calculate the temperature anisotropies as a function of wave number i.e. ΔT(k) / T using the list of transfer functions output from the camb code. I just want to use my own initial power spectrum P_{ζ}(k) of initial perturbations(comoving curvature perturbations) to calculate . Where Δ_{i}(k) would be some combination of transfer functions of the camb code. So, what precise combinations of transfer functions do I need here as Δ_{i}'s?
Thanks in Advance!!

Are you sure you don't want to calculate the C_{} power spectrum? That's easily done by modifying CAMB's power_tilt.f90 to use your own initial power spectrum (and increasing accuracy settings if needed).

No we are working out some moments in momentum space so we don't need C_{l} or any angular part.

My hunch is that the temperature anisotropy is to leading order equal to , where Φ is Weyl potential. While, you have said in your notes that power spectrum of Weyl potential is P_{Φ} = T_{Φ}(k)P_{ζ}(k) where ζ is primordial perturbations. Is the same true for other power spectra as . So the transfer function output from the camb code are that don't include the primordial power spectrum P_{ζ}(k). Please correct me if I am wrong!

Transfer function outputs are not squared (and indeed not scaled by the primordial power). The temperature sources are quite complicated in general (calculated in output routine of equations.f90).
