We put constraints on the main cosmological parameters of different spatially flat cosmological models by combining the recent clustering results of XMM–Newton soft (0.5–2 keV) X-ray sources, which have a redshift distribution with median redshift z∼ 1.2, and Type Ia supernova data. Using a likelihood procedure we find that the model that best reproduces the observational data and which is consistent with stellar ages is the concordanceΛ cold dark matter model with Ωm≃ 0.28, w ≃−1, H0≃ 72 km s…
