Inflation and Dust with Planck

July 20, 2015
Abstract: Planck’s full-mission data, released in 2015, provides a high-resolution whole- sky polarization and temperature maps of the CMB and astrophysical components. I will talk about implications of Planck 2015 results for inflation, why cosmic dust is important, and what we are currently doing to study it.
