13 February 2003 Prospects for weak lensing/cosmic shear with VLTs
Author Affiliations +
The present status of weak lensing analyses of clusters of galaxies and of cosmic shear surveys are presented and discussed. We focus on the impact of very large telescopes on present-day and future surveys and compare their potential with HST or wide field 4 meter telescopes.
