Supernovae Light Curves: An Argument for a New Distance Modulus

  title={Supernovae Light Curves: An Argument for a New Distance Modulus},
  author={Jerry W. Jensen},
  journal={arXiv: Astrophysics},
Supernovae Ia (SNe Ia) light curves have been used to prove the universe is expanding. As standard candles, SNe Ia appear to indicate the rate of expansion has increased in the past and is now decreasing. This independent evaluation of SNe Ia light curves demonstrates a Malmquist Type II bias exists in the body of supernova data. If this bias is properly addressed, there is very little budget for time dilation in the light curves of supernova. A non-relativistic distance modulus is proposed… 
Clustering of Gravitational Wave and Supernovae events: a multitracer analysis in Luminosity Distance Space
We study the clustering of Gravitational Wave (GW) merger events and Supernovae IA (SN), as cosmic tracers in Luminosity Distance Space. We modify the publicly available CAMB code to numerically
Living in a Low Density Black Hole, Non-Expanding Universe - Perhaps a Reflecting Universe
What is the average density of a black hole, assuming its spin can prevent it from collapsing into a singularity? For stellar black holes, the average density is incredibly dense and has over a


Infrared Light Curves of Type Ia Supernovae
This paper provides a progress report on a collaborative program at the Las Campanas and Cerro Tololo Observatories to observe the near-IR light curves of Type Ia supernovae. We discuss how the
Time Dilation in the Light Curve of the Distant Type Ia Supernova 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 = 0.479, provides one of the first
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
Observations of Type Ia Supernovae and Challenges for Cosmology
Observations of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) reveal correlations between their luminosities and light-curve shapes, and between their spectral sequence and photometric sequence. Assuming SNe Ia do not
The reddening-free decline rate versus luminosity relationship for type ia supernovae
We develop a method for estimating the host galaxy dust extinction for type Ia supernovae based on an observational coincidence first noted by Lira, who found that the B-V evolution during the period
The Absolute Luminosities of the Calan/Tololo Type Ia Supernovae
We examine the absolute luminosities of 29 SNe Ia in the Calan/Tololo survey. We confirm a relation between the peak luminosity of the SNe and the decline rate as measured by the light curve, as
Optical Light Curves of Supernovae
Photometry is the most easily acquired information about supernovae. The light curves constructed from regular imaging provide signatures not only for the energy input, the radiation escape, the
Timescale stretch parameterization of Type Ia supernova B-band light curves
R-band intensity measurements along the light curve of Type Ia supernovae discovered by the Cosmology Project (SCP) are fitted in brightness to templates allowing a free parameter the time-axis width
Could there be a hole in type Ia supernovae
In the favored progenitor scenario, Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) arise from a white dwarf accreting material from a non-degenerate companionstar. Soon after the white dwarf explodes, the ejected
Multi-color light curves of type Ia supernovae on the color-magnitude diagram: A novel step toward more precise distance and extinction estimates
We show empirically that fits to the color-magnitude relation of Type Ia supernovae after optical maximum can provide accurate relative extragalactic distances. We report the discovery of an
