We have developed a technique to systematically discover and study high-redshift supernovae that can be used to measure the cosmological parameters. We report here results based on the initial seven of more than 28 supernovae discovered to date in the high-redshift supernova search of the Supernova Cosmology Project. We find an observational dispersion in peak magnitudes of ? -->MB=0.27; this dispersion narrows to ?MB, corr=0.19 after correcting the magnitudes using the light-curve width… Expand
