Cosmology with Shear Peaks Statistics and LSST

Shear peak counts are emerging as an important tool for constraining cosmological parameters. I will introduce weak lensing and the shear peak statistic, and describe a framework combining N-body simulations and LSST image simulations which allows us to make the first realistic predictions of the cosmological constraints obtainable with shear peak statistics for LSST.
