From magnitudes and redshifts of supernovae, their light-curves, and angular sizes of galaxies to a tenable cosmology
Early physical cosmologies were based on interpretations of the cosmic redshift for which there was insufficient evidence and on theories of gravitation that appear to be falsified by galactic
A Chandra and XMM View of the Mass & Metals in Galaxy Groups and Clusters
X-ray observations with Chandra and XMM are providing valuable new measurements of the baryonic and dark matter content of groups and clusters. Masses of cD clusters obtained from X-ray and
Type Ia supernovae: their origin and possible applications in cosmology.
Spectroscopic and photometric evidence indicates that Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) are the thermonuclear explosions of accreting white dwarfs. However, the progenitor binary systems and hydrodynamical
A New Upper Limit on the Large Angular Scale Polarization of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation
The Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMB) is an invaluable probe of the conditions of the early universe. Recent measurements of its spatial anisotropy have allowed accurate determinations of
Light Propagation in Inhomogeneous Universes. II. Cosmological Parameter Survey
Using a multiple-lens plane algorithm, we study light propagation in inhomogeneous universes, for 43 different COBE-normalized Cold Dark Matter models, with various values of the density parameter 0,
A new upper limit on the polarization of the cosmic microwave background radiation
The Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation (CMB) is an invaluable probe of the conditions of the early universe. Recent measurements of its spatial anisotropy have allowed accurate determinations of
Testing Lambda and the Limits of Cosmography with the Union2.1 Supernova Compilation
We present a cosmographic study designed to test the simplest type of accelerating cosmology: a flat universe with matter and a cosmological constant ($\Lambda$). Hubble series expansions are fit to
Einstein's Biggest Blunder? High-Redshift Supernovae and the Accelerating Universe 1
Nearly 4 years ago, two teams of observational astronomers reported that high-redshift Type Ia supernovae are fainter than expected in a decelerating or freely coasting universe. The radical
Evidence for the fifth element
Evidence for an accelerated expansion of the universe as it has been revealed 10 years ago by the Hubble diagram of distant type Ia supernovae represents one of the major modern revolutions for

Observational Evidence from Supernovae for an Accelerating Universe and a Cosmological Constant
We present spectral and photometric observations of 10 Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) in the redshift range 0.16 " z " 0.62. The luminosity distances of these objects are determined by methods that
OBSERVATIONAL EVIDENCE FROM SUPERNOVAE FOR AN ACCELERATING UNIVERSE AND A COSMOLOGICAL CONSTANT
We present spectral and photometric observations of 10 Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) in the redshift range 0.16 " z " 0.62. The luminosity distances of these objects are determined by methods that
OBSERVATION OF COSMOLOGICAL TIME DILATION USING TYPE IA SUPERNOVAE AS CLOCKS The Supernova Cosmology Project : III
This work is based on the first results from a systematic search for high redshift Type Ia supernovae. Using filters in the R-band we discovered seven such SNe, with redshift z = 0.3 — 0.5, before or
The discovery of a type Ia supernova at a redshift of 0.31
OBSERVATIONS indicate that nearby supernova of type Ia have similar peak brightnesses, with a spread of less than 0.3 mag (ref. 1), so that they can potentially be used as 'standard candles' to
Constraints on Cosmological Models from Hubble Space Telescope Observations of High-z Supernovae
We have coordinated Hubble Space Telescope (HST) photometry with ground-based discovery for three supernovae: Type Ia supernovae near z ≈ 0.5 (SN 1997ce, SN 1997cj) and a third event at z = 0.97 (SN
Using distant type IA supernovae to measure the cosmological expansion parameters.
A comprehensive analysis of two recent collections of distant Type Ia supernovae is presented. The method used is both simple and rigorous. Correcting the absolute magnitudes for the measured decline
Time Dilation in the Light Curve of the Distant Type Ia Supernovae SN 1995K
The light curve of a distant Type Ia supernova acts like a clock that can be used to test the expansion of the universe. SN 1995K, at a spectroscopic redshift of z 5 0.479, provides one of the first
Measurements of the cosmological parameters omega and lambda from the first seven supernovae at z greater than or equal to 0.35
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
Feasibility of measuring the cosmological constant {Lambda} and mass density {Omega} using Type Ia supernovae
We explore the feasibility of resurrecting the apparent magnitude-redshift relation for a 'standard candle' to measure the cosmological constant and mass density. We show that type Ia supernovae, if
Constraints on cosmological parameters from recent measurements of cosmic microwave background anisotropy
A key prediction of cosmological theories for the origin and evolution of structure in the Universe is the existence of a ‘Doppler peak’ in the angular power spectrum of cosmic microwave background
