We present novel cosmological constraints based on a joint analysis of our H ii galaxies (HIIG) Hubble relation with the full Planck cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropy spectrum and the baryon acoustic oscillations (BAO) probes. The HIIG span a large redshift range (0.088 ≤ z ≤ 2.5), reaching significantly higher redshifts than available Type Ia supernovae (SNeIa) and hence they probe the cosmic expansion at earlier times. Our independent constraints compare well with those based on… Expand

Independent cosmological constraints from high-z H ii galaxies: new results from VLT-KMOS data
We present independent determinations of cosmological parameters using the distance estimator based on the established correlation between the Balmer line luminosity, L(Hβ), and the velocityExpand
Constraining the Dark Energy Equation of State with HII Galaxies
We use the HII galaxies $L - \sigma$ relation and the resulting Hubble expansion cosmological probe of a sample of just 25 high-$z$ (up to $z \sim 2.33$) HII galaxies, in a joint likelihood analysisExpand
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
A strategy to measure the dark energy equation of state using the H ii galaxy Hubble function and X-ray active galactic nuclei clustering: preliminary results
We explore the possibility of setting stringent constraints to the Dark Energy equation of state using alternative cosmic tracers like: (a) the Hubble relation using HII galaxies, which can beExpand
H II galaxies as deep cosmological probes
We re-investigated the use of the Hubble diagram to measure the cosmological constant (Λ) and the mass density of the Universe (ΩM). We find an important focusing effect in Λ for redshifts of aboutExpand
Planck 2013 results. XVI. Cosmological parameters
This paper presents the first cosmological results based on Planck measurements of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) temperature and lensing-potential power spectra. We find that the PlanckExpand
On the road to precision cosmology with high redshift HII galaxies
We report the first results of a programme aimed at studying the properties of high redshift galaxies with on-going massive and dominant episodes of star formation (HII galaxies). We use theExpand
The clustering of galaxies in the completed SDSS-III Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey: cosmological analysis of the DR12 galaxy sample
We present cosmological results from the final galaxy clustering data set of the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey, part of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey III. Our combined galaxy sampleExpand
Constraining the Dark Energy Equation of State using Alternative High-z Cosmic Tracers
We propose to use alternative cosmic tracers to measure the dark energy equation of state and the matter content of the Universe [w(z)&Ωm]. Our proposed method consists of two components: (a) tracingExpand
Improved Dark Energy Constraints From ~ 100 New CfA Supernova Type Ia Light Curves
We combine the CfA3 supernovae Type Ia (SN Ia) sample with samples from the literature to calculate improved constraints on the dark energy equation of state parameter, w. The CfA3 sample is added toExpand
