  Abstract:
Full-sky maps of the cosmic microwave background temperature reveal a 7estimators to various cut-sky temperature maps from Planck and WMAP data shows consistency with a dipole modulation, diering from a null signal at 2.5 , with an amplitude and direction con- sistent with previous ts based on the temperature uctuation power. The signal is scale dependent, with a statistically signicant amplitude at angular scales larger than 2 degrees. Future measure- ments of microwave background polarization and gravitational lensing can increase the signicance of the signal. If the signal is not a statistical uke in an isotropic Universe, it requires new physics beyond the standard model of cosmology.
