This posting follows from 20180827_bkfinal_04 and shows results for three masks: 04 is nominal 3% circular, 04b is nominal Chile and 04c is Pole (BICEP3 2017).

We show results for all the available foreground models which cover the full sky. These are: Uniform Gaussian 00, PySM models 01/02/03, amp mod Gaussian 07, MKD multilayer 08 (arxiv/1706.04162), and Vansyngel 09 arxiv/1611.02577).

- Thick red : lensed-ΛCDM scalars
- Thick black : Real data
- Colored : lensed-ΛCDM + noise + foreground realizations

- thick red : lensed-ΛCDM
- thin gray : s+n+f simulations with lensed-ΛCDM (sim type 5) and foregrounds (sim type 3) as signal, debiased with noise (sim type 6)
- thick gray : mean of sims (thin gray)
- red points with blue error bars : real data, debiased with the noise, uncertainties from the spread of the s+n+f sims (thin gray)

- thin gray : s+n+f sims
- thin red : 1 sigma contours
- thin green : 2 sigma contours
- thick black + markers : real data
- red markers : bins that go into chi2 analysis

Note: The contours mark the simulated bandpower in each bin closest to the respective percentile.

- red vertical : real data
- blue : distribution from s+n+f sims
- green : chi2 probability distribution fitted to blue

- red vertical : real data
- blue : distribution from s+n+f sims

- red : std of s+n+f sims
- blue : std of noise-only sims

Note: Remember that bandpower is a variance. Hence bandpower error bar is the std of a variance. This means noise and sample fluctuation components straight add, no quadrature — i.e. the difference between blue and red is the signal fluctatution component.
