The Cosmological Constant and Dark Energy
Physics invites the idea that space contains energy whose gravitational effect approximates that of Einstein's cosmological constant, Lambda: nowadays the concept is termed dark energy orExpand

Cosmological 'seed' magnetic field from inflation
We extend the canonical exponential potential scalar field inflation modified hot big bang model by adding an inflation epoch coupling, between the scalar field Φ responsible for inflation and anExpand

Cosmology with a Time Variable Cosmological Constant
Description d'une cosmologie basee sur une constante cosmologique Λ decroissante avec le temps quand l'energie potentielle du champ scalaire φ possede une queue en loi de puissance V∼φ − α pour φExpand

Median Statistics Estimate of the Distance to the Galactic Center
We show that error distributions of a compilation of 28 recent independent measurements of the distance from the Sun to the Galactic center, $R_{0}$, are wider than a standard Gaussian and best fitExpand

We compile a list of 28 independent measurements of the Hubble parameter between redshifts 0.07 ≤ z ≤ 2.3 and use this to place constraints on model parameters of constant and time-evolving darkExpand

Cosmic Microwave Background Anisotropy in COBE DMR-normalized Open and Flat-Λ Cold Dark Matter Cosmogonies
We compute the cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropy in open and flat-Λ cold dark matter (CDM) cosmogonies which are normalized to the two-year DMR sky maps. Presently available CMB data areExpand

Median Statistics and the Hubble Constant
ABSTRACT.Following Gott et al., we use Huchra’s final compilation of 553 measurements of the Hubble constant (H0H0) to estimate median statistical constraints on H0H0. Our median statistical analysisExpand

Median Statistics, H0, and the Accelerating Universe
We develop median statistics that provide powerful alternatives to χ2 likelihood methods and require fewer assumptions about the data. Application to astronomical data demonstrates that medianExpand

Hubble parameter measurement constraints on the redshift of the deceleration-acceleration transition, dynamical dark energy, and space curvature
We compile an updated list of 38 measurements of the Hubble parameter $H(z)$ between redshifts $0.07 \leq z \leq 2.36$ and use them to place constraints on model parameters of constant andExpand

Large-scale structure in COBE-normalized cold dark matter cosmogonies
We study the clustering of the mass distribution in COBE-normalized open and flat CDM models using large N-body simulations. With an age of the universe of 14 Gyr (12 Gyr) for the flat (open) modelsExpand
