Fig. 25


Power spectra drawn from the Planck TT+lowP posterior for the correlated matter isocurvature model, colour-coded by the value of the isocurvature amplitude parameter α, compared to the Planck data points. The left-hand figure shows how the negatively-correlated modes lower the large-scale temperature spectrum, slightly improving the fit at low multipoles. Including polarization, the negatively-correlated modes are disfavoured, as illustrated at the first acoustic peak in EE on the right-hand plot. Data points at < 30 are not shown for polarization, as they are included with both the default temperature (i.e., TT+lowP) and polarization (i.e., TT,TE,EE+lowP) likelihood combinations.
