The Influence of Quintessence on the Separation of CMB Peaks


A hypothetical dark energy component may have an equation of state that is different from a cosmological constant and possibly even changing in time. The spacing of the cosmic microwave background peaks is sensitive to the ratio of the horizon sizes today and at last scattering and therefore to the details of the cosmological evolution. Together with… (More)
