Constraints on Primordial Non-Gaussianity from weak lensing

Arlindo M. M. Trindade

Primordial Non-Gaussianity constitutes a powerful tool to test different inflationary scenarios, as well as to probe the physical processes in the early Universe. Thus, detecting and constraining Non-Gaussianity has become a crucial task for current cosmological studies.
In this talk, I will review some notions of weak lensing and show how one can use weak lensing observables to constrain the level of primordial Non-Gaussianity.
