# Dark Energy, Expansion History of the Universe, and SNAP

@article{Linder2002DarkEE, title={Dark Energy, Expansion History of the Universe, and SNAP}, author={Eric V. Linder}, journal={arXiv: Astrophysics}, year={2002}, volume={655}, pages={193-207} }

Precision distance‐redshift observations can map out the recent expansion history of the universe, including the present acceleration and the transition to matter dominated deceleration. The proposed Supernova/Acceleration Probe (SNAP) will carry out observations determining the components and equations of state of the energy density, providing insights into the cosmological model, the nature of the accelerating dark energy, and potentially clues to fundamental high energy physics theories and…
