This paper presents cosmological results from the final data release of the WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey. We perform full analyses of different cosmological models using the WiggleZ power spectra measured at z=0.22, 0.41, 0.60, and 0.78, combined with other cosmological data sets. The limiting factor in this analysis is the theoretical modeling of the galaxy power spectrum, including nonlinearities, galaxy bias, and redshift-space distortions. In this paper we assess several different methods for… 
The WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey: measuring the cosmic growth rate with the two-point galaxy correlation function
The growth history of large-scale structure in the Universe is a powerful probe of the cosmological model, including the nature of dark energy. We study the growth rate of cosmic structure to
The WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey: probing the epoch of radiation domination using large-scale structure
We place the most robust constraint to date on the scale of the turnover in the cosmological matter power spectrum using data from the WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey. We find this feature to lie at a
The WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey: final data release and the metallicity of UV-luminous galaxies
The WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey measured the redshifts of over 200 000 ultraviolet (UV)- selected (NUV < 22.8 mag) galaxies on the Anglo-Australian Telescope. The survey detected the baryon acoustic
Large-scale analysis of the SDSS-III DR8 photometric luminous galaxies angular correlation function
We analyze the large-scale angular correlation function (ACF) of the CMASS Luminous Galaxies (LGs), a photometric-redshift catalog based on the 8th data release (DR8) of the SDSS-III. This catalog
Model-independent constraints on dark energy evolution from low-redshift observations
Knowing the late time evolution of the Universe and finding out the causes for this evolution are the important challenges of modern cosmology. In this work, we adopt a model-independent cosmographic
Reconstruction of the Dark Energy Equation of State from the Latest Observations
Since the discovery of the accelerating expansion of our universe in 1998, studying the features of dark energy has remained a hot topic in modern cosmology. In the literature, dark energy is usually
Sound speed of scalar field dark energy: Weak effects and large uncertainties
The possibility of reconstruction of Lagrangian for the scalar field dark energy with constant effective sound speed $c_s$ is analyzed. It is found that such reconstruction can be made with accuracy
Measuring the 2D baryon acoustic oscillation signal of galaxies in WiggleZ: cosmological constraints
The cosmological constraints are consistent with flat ΛCDM cosmology and agree with results from the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey.
Constraining models of f(R) gravity with Planck and WiggleZ power spectrum data
In order to explain cosmic acceleration without invoking ``dark'' physics, we consider f(R) modified gravity models, which replace the standard Einstein-Hilbert action in General Relativity with a


The WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey: the selection function and z = 0.6 galaxy power spectrum
We report one of the most accurate measurements of the three-dimensional large-scale galaxy power spectrum achieved to date, using 56 159 redshifts of bright emission-line galaxies at effective
The WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey: mapping the distance-redshift relation with baryon acoustic oscillations
We present measurements of the baryon acoustic peak at redshifts z = 0.44, 0.6 and 0.73 in the galaxy correlation function of the final dataset of the WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey. We combine our
Reconstructing the linear power spectrum of cosmological mass fluctuations
We describe an attempt to reconstruct the initial conditions for the formation of cosmological large-scale structure. The power spectrum of the primordial fluctuations is affected by bias, nonlinear
We present observational constraints on the nature of dark energy using the Supernova Legacy Survey three-year sample (SNLS3) of Guy et al. and Conley et al. We use the 472 Type Ia supernovae (SNe
The Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) 5-year data provide stringent limits on deviations from the minimal, six-parameter Λ cold dark matter model. We report these limits and use them to
The WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey: measuring the cosmic expansion history using the Alcock-Paczynski test and distant supernovae
Astronomical observations suggest that today’s Universe is dominated by a dark energy of unknown physical origin. One of the most notable results obtained from many models is that dark energy should
Power spectrum analysis of three-dimensional redshift surveys
We develop a general method for power spectrum analysis of three dimensional redshift surveys. We present rigorous analytical estimates for the statistical uncertainty in the power and we are able to
Cosmological parameters from CMB and other data: A Monte Carlo approach
We present a fast Markov chain Monte Carlo exploration of cosmological parameter space. We perform a joint analysis of results from recent cosmic microwave background ~CMB! experiments and provide
WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey: Cosmological neutrino mass constraint from blue high-redshift galaxies
The absolute neutrino mass scale is currently unknown, but can be constrained by cosmology. The WiggleZ high redshift, star-forming, and blue galaxy sample offers a complementary data set to previous
We present cosmological parameters derived from the angular power spectrum of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation observed at 148 GHz and 218 GHz over 296 deg2 with the Atacama Cosmology
