Distance measurements to type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) indicate that the Universe is accelerating and that two-thirds of the critical energy density exists in a dark-energy component with negative pressure. Distance measurements to SNe Ia can be used to distinguish between different possibilities for the dark energy, and if it is an evolving scalar field, to reconstruct the scalar-field potential. We derive the reconstruction equations and address the feasibility of this approach by Monte Carlo… Expand

Can luminosity distance measurements probe the equation of state of dark energy
Abstract Distance measurements to type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) at cosmological distances indicate that the Universe is accelerating and that a large fraction of the critical energy density exists in aExpand
Constraints on reconstructed dark energy model from SN Ia and BAO/CMB observations
The motivation of the present work is to reconstruct a dark energy model through the dimensionless dark energy functionX(z), which is the dark energy density in units of its present value. In thisExpand
Model-independent analysis of dark energy: supernova fitting result
This paper uses supernova data to explore the property of dark energy by some model-independent methods. We first Taylor expand the scale factor a(t) and the luminosity distance dL to the fifth orderExpand
Limits on the Reconstruction of a Single Dark Energy Scalar Field Potential from SNe Ia Data
In this paper we perform a reconstruction of the scalar field potential responsible for cosmic acceleration using SNe Ia data. After describing the method, we test it with real SNe Ia data—Union2.1Expand
THE ROAD TO DARK ENERGY
I describe and critically evaluate a variety of methods, from simple parametrizations to non-parametric methods, to model the background expansion history in the presence of dark energy. Motivated byExpand
Supernovae and the nature of the dark energy
The use of Type Ia supernovae as calibrated standard candles is one of the most powerful tools to study the expansion history of the universe and thereby its energy components. While the analysis ofExpand
Dark energy, a cosmological constant, and type Ia supernovae
We focus on uncertainties in supernova measurements, in particular of individual magnitudes and redshifts, to review to what extent supernovae measurements of the expansion history of the universeExpand
Phenomenological aspects of dark energy dominated cosmologies
In this thesis we study some observational consequences of dark energy dominated cosmologies. After reviewing the main characteristics of quintessential models of dark energy, by using the SN Ia dataExpand
Probing the coupling between dark components of the universe
We place observational constraints on a coupling between dark energy and dark matter by using 71 Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) from the first year of the five-year Supernova Legacy Survey (SNLS), theExpand
RECONSTRUCTING DARK ENERGY
This review summarizes recent attempts to reconstruct the expansion history of the universe and to probe the nature of dark energy. Reconstruction methods can be broadly classified into parametricExpand
