[83.01] COSMOS

N. Z. Scoville (Caltech), COSMOS Team

The Cosmic Evolution Survey (COSMOS) is designed to probe the correlated evolution of galaxies, star formation, active galactic nuclei (AGN) and dark matter (DM) with large-scale structure (LSS) over the redshift range z = 0.5 to 3. The survey includes multi-wavelength imaging and spectroscopy from X-ray to radio wavelengths covering a 2 square deg area, including HST imaging of the entire field. Given the very high sensitivity and resolution of these datasets, COSMOS will also provide unprecedented samples of objects at z > 3. After a brief overview of the COSMOS survey, we present images of large scale structures seen in COSMOS using galaxy over-densities, x-rays and weak lensing.
