DATA (for Importance Sampling advanced exercise).

Planck chains are available here.

 

Choose one of the sets of 'key chains'.  You will get a zip file with a set of MCMC chains.  There is also a file telling you which order the parameters are in "...paramnames".  You may need to compute Omega_m from Omega_m=Omega_b+Omega_c, and the parameters include Omega_b h^2 and Omega_c h^2, so you need to find the column with h in it as well.
