The CMS experiment at the CERN LHC
The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector is described. The detector operates at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. It was conceived to study proton-proton (and lead-lead) collisions at aExpand
Improved cosmological constraints from a joint analysis of the SDSS-II and SNLS supernova samples
Aims. We present cosmological constraints from a joint analysis of type Ia supernova (SN Ia) observations obtained by the SDSS-II and SNLS collaborations. The dataset includes several low-redshiftExpand
SALT2: using distant supernovae to improve the use of type Ia supernovae as distance indicators
We present an empirical model of Type Ia supernovae spectro-photometric evolution with time. The model is built using a large data set including light-curves and spectra of both nearby and distantExpand
LSST: From Science Drivers to Reference Design and Anticipated Data Products
The LSST design is driven by four main science themes: probing dark energy and dark matter, taking an inventory of the solar system, exploring the transient optical sky, and mapping the Milky Way. Expand
Rates and Properties of Type Ia Supernovae as a Function of Mass and Star Formation in Their Host Galaxies
We show that Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) are formed within both very young and old stellar populations, with observed rates that depend on the stellar mass and mean star formation rates (SFRs) ofExpand
The Supernova Legacy Survey 3-year sample: Type Ia supernovae photometric distances and cosmological constraints ,
Aims. We present photometric properties and distance measurements of 252 high redshift Type Ia supernovae (0.15 < z < 1.1) discovered during the first three years of the Supernova Legacy SurveyExpand
SALT : a spectral adaptive light curve template for type Ia supernovae
We present a new method to parameterize type Ia Supernovae (SN Ia) multi-color light curves. The method was developed in order to analyze the large number of SN Ia multi-color light curves measuredExpand
We combine high-redshift Type Ia supernovae from the first three years of the Supernova Legacy Survey (SNLS) with other supernova (SN) samples, primarily at lower redshifts, to form a high-qualityExpand
The dependence of Type Ia Supernovae luminosities on their host galaxies
Precision cosmology with Type la supernovae (SNe Ia) makes use of the fact that SN Ia luminosities depend on their light-curve shapes and colours. Using Supernova Legacy Survey (SNLS) and other data,Expand
SNLS3: Constraints on dark energy combining the supernova legacy survey three-year data with other probes
We present observational constraints on the nature of dark energy using the Supernova Legacy Survey three-year sample (SNLS3) of Guy et al. and Conley et al. We use the 472 Type Ia supernovae (SNeExpand
