Abstract

We develop a new approach toward a high resolution non-parametric reconstruction of the primordial power spectrum using WMAP cosmic microwave background temperature anisotropies that we confront with SDSS large-scale structure data in the range k~0.01-0.1 h/Mpc. We utilise the standard LambdaCDM cosmological model but we allow the baryon fraction to vary. In particular, for the concordance baryon fraction, we compare indications of a possible feature at k~0.05 h/Mpc in WMAP data with suggestions of similar features in large scale structure surveys.
