CAMB: CMB angular power spectra with MODIFIED primordial power spectrum

Post by Jia-Rui Li » August 22 2022

Hello, I'd like to get some help about CAMB, especially about class camb.initialpower.InitialPower(*args, **kwargs).
The python on my laptop is version 3.8.8 and CAMB 1.3.2.
I set a modified primordial tensor power spectrum, then get the corresponding tensor mode CMB power spectrum C_BB (unlensed).
I am puzzled with three things:
(1) Why the calculated C_BB is not consecutive but performs oscillation ?
(2) Why C_BB = 0.0 when ell is larger than 600 ?
(3) When I set lmax larger than 2400, Why the system will give warning: "WARNING:root:getting CMB power spectra to higher L than calculated, may be innacurate/zeroed."?
My code is as following:
Thanks a lot !

You can set max_l_tensor for what tensor lmax to compute (usually negligible compared to lensing at high L).

You expect acoustic oscillations on sub-horizon scales if that's what you mean (+ reionization).

Use set_for_lmax to set maximum L computed.
