Fig. 4


Galaxies in the well resolved image set are assigned random centroid errors, then Gaussian noise is added, after which the shear is measured with SNAPG. Measured multiplicative bias in the shear is plotted versus the mean S/N of all galaxies on the images, with m1 in black and m2 in red. Each datapoint is based on the shear estimates of all 2.89 million galaxies in the well resolved image set. SNAPG results with the exact centroid covariance matrix are shown as dashed lines and results without centroid error correction as dotted lines. The bias from misplaced centroids can be reliably removed by SNAPG, regardless of the noise added to the images.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.
