The ith data point, which we denote yi , is a linear combination of the temperature across the sky, where the weights ascribed to each patch of sky are given by some known function fi (br).

Weak Gravitational Lensing
It is necessary to use the −∆ log L functions directly for the combination as in some cases they are not parabolic, so that it is not possible to combine the results correctly by simply taking weighted averages of the measurements.
