Cosmological Parameters  

In General > s.a. cosmological models; modern cosmology [theory]; observational cosmology [including age].
* Idea: The standard ΛCDM cosmological model depends on 6 parameters, extensions include additional parameters; The main tools to obtain estimates of their values are measurements of the microwave background, supernovae, and galaxy clusters (distribution, lensing, X-rays, Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect).
