Probability Distribution for Figure 7

 

This matrix of numbers gives the confidence levels for the probability distribution plotted in Figure 7.   Each row of the file gives a value of Omega_M, Omega_Lambda, and Prob for the entire matrix of Omega_M from 0.00 to 2.99 in steps of 0.01 and Omega_Lambda from -1.00 to 2.98 in steps of 0.02.  The following fragment of a computer code (written in the IDL language) to read the file and plot Figure 7 may help with this.


ival = long(200)
jval = long(300)

x=reform(usearray(0,where(usearray(1,*) eq usearray(1,0))),jval)
y=reform(usearray(1,0:ival-1),ival)
chi1=transpose(reform(usearray(2,*,*),ival,jval))
