Direct Constraints on the Properties and Evolution of Dark Energy

Abstract

We describe a method to derive the expansion and acceleration rates directly from the data, without the need for the specification of a theory of gravity, and without adopting an a priori parameterization of the form or redshift evolution of the dark energy. If one also specifies a theory of gravity we can also determine the pressure, energy density, and… (More)
