Optimisation of the population Monte Carlo algorithm : application to cosmology.
In this thesis we study the Population Monte Carlo (PMC) algorithm and utilise simulations to improve the efficiency of the algorithm by optimising the algorithm parameters. We then ap ply these optimisation results to ...
Bayesian analysis of cosmological models.
In this thesis, we utilise the framework of Bayesian statistics to discriminate between models of the cosmological mass function. We first review the cosmological model and the formation and distribution of galaxy clusters ...
