A cross-correlation technique of lensing tomography is developed to probe dark energy in the Universe. The variation of weak shear with redshift around foreground galaxies depends only on the angular distances and is robust to the dominant systematic error in lensing. We estimate the margin-alized accuracies that deep lensing surveys with photometric redshifts can provide on the dark energy density Omega(de), the equation of state parameter w, and its evolution w('): sigma(w) approximately… 
Dark Energy Constraints from Weak-Lensing Cross-Correlation Cosmography
We present a method for implementing the idea of Jain & Taylor for constraining cosmological parameters with weak gravitational lensing. Photometric redshift information on foreground galaxies is
Beating Lensing Cosmic Variance with Galaxy Tomography
We discuss the use of cross-correlations between galaxies with distance information and projected weak lensing dark matter maps to obtain a fully three-dimensional dark matter map and power spectrum.
Tomography of Lensing Cross-Power Spectra
By obtaining photometric redshift information, tomography allows us to cross-correlate galaxy ellipticities in different source redshift bins. The cross-correlation is nonvanishing because the
Isolating Geometry in Weak-Lensing Measurements
Given a foreground galaxy-density field or shear field, its cross-correlation with the shear field from a background population of source galaxies scales with the source redshift in a way that is
Cosmological parameters from lensing power spectrum and bispectrum tomography
We examine how lensing tomography with the bispectrum and power spectrum can constrain cosmological parameters and the equation of state of dark energy. Our analysis uses the full information at the
Evidence of the accelerated expansion of the Universe from weak lensing tomography with COSMOS
We present a comprehensive analysis of weak gravitational lensing by large-scale structure in the Hubble Space Telescope Cosmic Evolution Survey (COSMOS), in which we combine space-based galaxy shape
Biased dark energy constraints from neglecting reduced shear in weak-lensing surveys
The weak gravitational lensing of distant galaxies by a large-scale structure is expected to become a powerful probe of dark energy. By measuring the ellipticities of large number of background
Cross-correlation of spectroscopic and photometric galaxy surveys: cosmology from lensing and redshift distortions
Cosmological galaxy surveys aim at mapping the largest volumes to test models with techniques such as cluster abundance, cosmic shear correlations or baryon acoustic oscillations (BAO), which are
Self-calibration of photometric redshift scatter in weak-lensing surveys
Photometric redshift (photo-z) errors, especially catastrophic errors, are a major uncertainty for precision weak-lensing cosmology. We find that the shear (galaxy number) density and density-density
Cosmological lensing ratios with DES Y1, SPT, and Planck
Correlations between tracers of the matter density field and gravitational lensing are sensitive to the evolution of the matter power spectrum and the expansion rate across cosmic time. Appropriately
