omega_lambda parameter in CAMB-1.3.2

Post by Dournac Fabien » January 29 2022

Hello,

I just want to check if the parameter omega_lambda is still taken into account into the compute of power spectra in last CAMB-1.3.2 version.

Indeed, we can't use any more the option "use_physical = F" as it was the case in the previous version CAMB-0.1.7 on which I was working, and so we only work with the following Omega ("little" Omega) :

ombh2 = 0.0226
omch2 = 0.112
omnuh2 = 0.00064
omk = 0
hubble = 70

As you can see, there is no omega_lambda present : is this parameter deduced from "omega_lambda = 1 - sum_i omega_i/h^2" ?

Maybe there is a little "omega_lambda" defined somewhere but I didn't see it in the default params_base.ini , Could someone double check it ?

Regards

ok, thanks and what about the parameter "omk" :

Is it equal to :

[math] ?

with [math]

?

omk is just $\Omega_K$
