# A parametric model for dark energy

@article{Barboza2008APM, title={A parametric model for dark energy}, author={Ed'esio M. Barboza and Jailson Alcaniz}, journal={Physics Letters B}, year={2008}, volume={666}, pages={415-419} }

Abstract Determining the mechanism behind the current cosmic acceleration constitutes a major question nowadays in theoretical physics. If the dark energy route is taken, this problem may potentially bring to light new insights not only in cosmology but also in high energy physics theories. Following this approach, we explore in this Letter some cosmological consequences of a new time-dependent parameterization for the dark energy equation of state (EoS), which is a well behaved function of the… Expand
