# Crossing the phantom divide: theoretical implications and observational status

@article{Nesseris2006CrossingTP, title={Crossing the phantom divide: theoretical implications and observational status}, author={Savvas Nesseris and Leandros Perivolaropoulos}, journal={Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics}, year={2006}, volume={2007}, pages={018 - 018} }

If the dark energy equation of state parameter w(z) crosses the phantom divide line w = −1 (or equivalently if the expression d(H2(z))/dz−3Ω0mH02(1+z)2 changes sign) at recent redshifts, then there are two possible cosmological implications. Either the dark energy consists of multiple components with at least one non-canonical phantom component or general relativity needs to be extended to a more general theory on cosmological scales. The former possibility requires the existence of a phantom…
