The High-z Supernova Search Team has discovered and observed eight new supernovae in the redshift interval z = 0.3-1.2. These independent observations, analyzed by similar but distinct methods, confirm the results of Riess and Perlmutter and coworkers that supernova luminosity distances imply an accelerating universe. More importantly, they extend the redshift range of consistently observed Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) to z ≈ 1, where the signature of cosmological effects has the opposite sign… Expand
Type Ia Supernovae and Cosmology
I discuss the use of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) for cosmological distance determinations. Low-redshift SNe Ia (z ≲ 0.1) demonstrate that the Hubble expansion is linear with H 0 = 72±8 km s−1 Mpc−1,Expand
The Accelerating Universe and Dark Energy: Evidence from Type Ia Supernovae
� 0.1) demonstrate that the Hubble expansion is linear, that H0 = 72 ± 8 km s 1 Mpc 1 , and that the properties of dust in other galaxies are similar to those of dust in the Milky Way. The lightExpand
Low Redshift (z < 1) Supernova Studies
The evidence for an accelerating universe, with its implication for the existence of a repulsive dark energy, is of profound significance for particle physics and cosmology. Yet the explanation forExpand
Weak lensing of the high redshift SNIa sample
The current sample of high-redshift Type Ia supernovae (SNeIa), which combines results from two teams, the High-z Supernova Search Team and the Supernova Cosmology Project, is analysed for theExpand
Dark energy and the accelerated expansion of the universe have been the direct predictions of the distant supernovae Ia observations which are also supported, indirectly, by the observations of theExpand
Twenty-Three High-Redshift Supernovae from the Institute for Astronomy Deep Survey: Doubling the Supernova Sample at z > 0.7 * **
We present photometric and spectroscopic observations of 23 high-redshift supernovae (SNe) spanning a range of z = 0.34-1.03, nine of which are unambiguously classified as Type Ia. These SNe wereExpand
Spectroscopic Determination of the Low-redshift Type Ia Supernova Rate from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
Supernova rates (SNRs) are directly coupled to high-mass stellar birth and evolution. As such, they are one of the few direct measures of the history of cosmic stellar evolution. In this paper, weExpand
We use a sample of 42 supernovae detected with the Advanced Camera for Surveys on-board the Hubble Space Telescope as part of the Great Observatories Origins Deep Survey to measure the rate of coreExpand
Hubble Space Telescope and Ground-based Observations of Type Ia Supernovae at Redshift 0.5: Cosmological Implications
We present observations of the Type Ia supernovae (SNe) 1999M, 1999N, 1999Q, 1999S, and 1999U, at redshift z ≈ 0.5. They were discovered in early 1999 with the 4.0 m Blanco telescope at Cerro TololoExpand
Constraining Dark Energy and Cosmological Transition Redshift with Type Ia Supernovae
The property of dark energy and the physical reason for the acceleration of the present universe are two of the most difficult problems in modern cosmology. The dark energy contributes aboutExpand


Do Type Ia supernovae prove Λ>0?
The evidence for positive cosmological constantfrom Type Ia super- novae is reexamined. Both high redshift supernova teams are found to underestimate the effects of host galaxy extinction. TheExpand
Observational Evidence from Supernovae for an Accelerating Universe and a Cosmological Constant
We present spectral and photometric observations of 10 Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) in the redshift range 0.16 " z " 0.62. The luminosity distances of these objects are determined by methods thatExpand
Measurements of the cosmological parameters omega and lambda from the first seven supernovae at z greater than or equal to 0.35
We have developed a technique to systematically discover and study high-redshift supernovae that can be used to measure the cosmological parameters. We report here results based on the initial sevenExpand
The Hubble diagram of type Ia supernovae as a function of host galaxy morphology
We present new results on the Hubble diagram of distant type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) segregated according to the type of host galaxy. This makes it possible to check earlier evidence for aExpand
The discovery of a type Ia supernova at a redshift of 0.31
OBSERVATIONS indicate that nearby supernova of type Ia have similar peak brightnesses, with a spread of less than 0.3 mag (ref. 1), so that they can potentially be used as 'standard candles' toExpand
The host galaxies of Type Ia supernovae at z= 0.6
We examine the host galaxies of high-redshift Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) using archival I- and R-band data from the Hubble Space Telescope. The SNe Ia host galaxies show a wide variety ofExpand

Type Ia supernovae, evolution, and the cosmological constant
We explore the possible role of evolution in the analysis of data on Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) at cosmological distances. First, using a variety of simple sleuthing techniques, we find evidenceExpand
