This is a pedagogical review of the recent observational data obtained from type Ia supernova (SnIa) surveys that support the accelerating expansion of the universe. The methods for the analysis of the data are reviewed and some of the theoretical implications obtained from their analysis are discussed. In particular, the existence of dark energy with negative pressure required by the data is demonstrated and the simplest type of dark energy (the cosmological constant) is shown to fit well the… 
Testing anisotropy and comparison of various supernova data constraints on dark energy model
We study the possibly existing anisotropy in the accelerating expansion Universe with various supernovae data, the baryon acoustic oscillation and the observational Hubble data. We present combined
CONSTRAINTS ON THE SOUND SPEED OF DYNAMICAL DARK ENERGY
In this paper we study in detail the sound speed — $c_s^2$, which is directly related to the classical perturbations — of dynamical dark energy (DE). We consider especially the case with an equation
Why is Universe so dark
In this presentation prepared for a general audience, we briefly mention the shortcomings of standard model of universe. We then focus on the late time inconsistency of the model dubbed age crisis
A thermodynamic motivation for dark energy
It is argued that the discovery of cosmic acceleration could have been anticipated on thermodynamic grounds, namely, the generalized second law and the approach to equilibrium at large scale factor.
Thermodynamic Equilibrium and Rise of Complexity in an Accelerated Universe
Observational data (Supernovae type Ia data) indicate that the rate of the universe expansion is increasing, which means that, in the framework of General Relativity, the current phase of the
An accelerating cosmological model from a parametrization of Hubble parameter
In view of late-time cosmic acceleration, a dark energy cosmological model is revisited wherein Einstein’s cosmological constant is considered as a candidate of dark energy. Exact solution of
Cosmology with hybrid expansion law: scalar field reconstruction of cosmic history and observational constraints
In this paper, we consider a simple form of expansion history of Universe referred to as the hybrid expansion law - a product of power-law and exponential type of functions. The ansatz by
Cosmology with hybrid expansion law: scalar field reconstruction of cosmic history and observational constraints
In this paper, we consider a simple form of expansion history of Universe referred to as the hybrid expansion law - a product of power-law and exponential type of functions. The ansatz by
On Friedmann-Lema\^{\i}tre-Robertson-Walker cosmologies in non-standard gravity
The present thesis is focused on the study of FLRW cosmology in modified gravities and with scalar fields. The mystery of dark energy has made that the last decade, many efforts in theoretical

The proper usage of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) as distance indicators has revolutionized cosmology, and added a new dominant component to the energy density of the Universe, dark energy. Following

In this paper we use the recently released Type Ia Supernova (SNIa) data to constrain the interactions between the neutrinos and the dark energy scalar fields. In the analysis we take the dark energy
Constraints on dark energy from the observed density fluctuations spectrum and supernova data
One of the greatest challenges in cosmology today is to determine the nature of dark energy, the source of the observed present acceleration of the universe. High precision experiments are being
PROBING DARK ENERGY: METHODS AND STRATEGIES
The presence of dark energy in the Universe is inferred directly from the accelerated expansion of the Universe, and indirectly, from measurements of cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropy.
Observational constraints on low redshift evolution of dark energy: How consistent are different observations?
The dark energy component of the Universe is often interpreted either in terms of a cosmological constant or as a scalar field. A generic feature of the scalar field models is that the equation of
Dark energy equation of state and anthropic selection
We explore the possibility that the dark energy is due to a potential of a scalar field and that the magnitude and the slope of this potential in our part of the universe are largely determined by

We use the Type Ia Supernova gold sample data of Riess et al in order to constrain three models of dark energy. We study the Cardassian model, the Dvali-Turner gravity modified model, and the
