Cosmological Models

First, pick a cosmological model using the cosmology function, which takes the following options:

h = 0.69 Dimensionless Hubble constant
OmegaK = 0 Curvature density, Ωk
OmegaM = 0.29 Matter density, Ωm
OmegaR = Ωγ + Ων Radiation density, Ωr
Tcmb = 2.7255 CMB temperature (K), used to compute Ωγ
Neff = 3.04 Effective number of massless neutrino species, used to compute Ων
w0 = -1 CPL dark energy equation of state, w = w0 + wa*(1-a)
wa = 0 CPL dark energy equation of state, w = w0 + wa*(1-a)
