Measuring lensing magnification of quasars by large scale structure using the variability-luminosity relation

Bauer, Anne; Seitz, S; Jerke, Jonathon; Scalzo, Richard; Rabinowitz, David; Ellman, Nancy; Baltay, C

Description

We introduce a technique to measure gravitational lensing magnification using the variability of type I quasars. Quasars' variability amplitudes and luminosities are tightly correlated, on average. Magnification due to gravitational lensing increases the
