Item Type: Conference Paper
Abstract: We discuss the problems of applying Maximum Likelihood methods to the CMB and how one can make it both efficient and optimal. The solution is a generalised eigenvalue problem that allows virtually no loss of information about the parameter being estimated, but can allow a substantial compression of the data set. We discuss the more difficult question of simultaneous estimation of many parameters, and propose solutions. A much fuller account of most of this work is available (Tegmark, Taylor & Heavens 1997)
