The accelerating expansion of the universe suggests that an unknown component with strongly negative pressure, called dark energy, currently dominates the dynamics of the universe. Such a component makes up ~70% of the energy density of the universe yet has not been predicted by the standard model of particle physics. The best method for exploring the nature of this dark energy is to map the recent expansion history, at which Type Ia supernovae have proved adept. We examine here the depth of… Expand

Probing the evolution of the dark energy density with future supernova surveys
The time dependence of the dark energy density can be an important clue to the nature of dark energy in the universe. We show that future supernova data from dedicated telescopes (such as SNAP), whenExpand
Effects of systematic uncertainties on the supernova determination of cosmological parameters
Mapping the recent expansion history of the universe offers the best hope for uncovering the characteristics of the dark energy believed to be responsible for the acceleration of the expansion. InExpand
Probing Dark Energy with Supernova Searches
Four years ago, two teams presented independent analyzes coming from photometry of type Ia supernovae at various distances. The results presented back then shook-up the scientific community: theExpand
Running after w(z): Some stumbling blocks
One of the most viable explanations for the accelerated expansion of the universe at the present epoch entails a mysterious dark energy component in the energy budget of the universe. Although theExpand
Dark Energy and Neutrino Masses from Future Measurements of the Expansion History and Growth of Structure
We forecast the expected cosmological constraints from a combination of probes of both the universal expansion rate and matter perturbation growth, in the form of weak lensing tomography, galaxyExpand
Distinguishing among scalar field models of dark energy
We show that various scalar field models of dark energy predict degenerate luminosity distance history of the Universe and thus cannot be distinguished by supernovae measurements alone. InExpand
Exploring the expanding Universe and dark energy using the statefinder diagnostic
The coming few years are likely to witness a dramatic increase in high-quality supernova data as current surveys add more high-redshift supernovae to their inventory and as newer and deeper supernovaExpand
Sensitivity and figures of merit for dark energy supernova surveys
Tracking the origin of the accelerating expansion of the Universe remains one of the most challenging research activities today. The final answer will depend on the precision and on the consistencyExpand
High-redshift standard candles: predicted cosmological constraints
We investigate whether future measurements of high-redshift standard candles will be a powerful probe of dark energy, when compared to other types of planned dark energy measurements. Active galacticExpand
Falsifying paradigms for cosmic acceleration
Consistency relations between growth of structure and expansion history observables exist for any physical explanation of cosmic acceleration, be it a cosmological constant, scalar fieldExpand
