The detection of the accelerated expansion of the Universe has been one of the major breakthroughs in modern cosmology. Several cosmological probes (Cosmic Microwave Background, Supernovae Type Ia, Baryon Acoustic Oscillations) have been studied in depth to better understand the nature of the mechanism driving this acceleration, and they are being currently pushed to their limits, obtaining remarkable constraints that allowed us to shape the standard cosmological model. In parallel to that… 

New Observational H(z) Data from Full-spectrum Fitting of Cosmic Chronometers in the LEGA-C Survey

In this work, we perform a full-spectrum fitting of 350 massive and passive galaxies selected as cosmic chronometers from the LEGA-C ESO public survey to derive their stellar ages, metallicities, and

On the energy flow of $\lambda$ in Ho\v{r}ava-Lifshitz cosmology

Ho\v{r}ava-Lifshitz gravity has been proposed as a ghost-free quantum gravity model candidate with an anisotropic UV-scaling between space and time. We present here a cosmological background analysis

Observational constrained F(R, G) gravity cosmological model and the dynamical system analysis

The geometrical and dynamical parameters of the F(R, G) gravity cosmological model are constrained through the cosmological data sets. The functional form of F(R, G) involves the square Ricci scalar

$H_0=69.8\pm1.3$ $\rm{km \ s^{-1} \ Mpc^{-1}}$, $\Omega_{m0}=0.288\pm0.017$, and other constraints from lower-redshift, non-CMB, expansion-rate data

We use updated Type Ia Pantheon+ supernova, baryon acoustic oscillation, and Hubble parameter (now also accounting for correlations) data, as well as new reverberation-measured C IV quasar data, and

The Ups and Downs of Early Dark Energy solutions to the Hubble tension: a review of models, hints and constraints circa 2023

We review the current status of Early Dark Energy (EDE) models proposed to resolve the ``Hubble tension'', the discrepancy between ``direct'' measurements of the current expansion rate of the

Hubble Tension: The Evidence of New Physics

The ΛCDM model provides a good fit to most astronomical observations but harbors large areas of phenomenology and ignorance. With the improvements in the precision and number of observations,

Quasars as high-redshift standard candles

The non-linear relation between the X-ray and ultraviolet (UV) luminosity in quasars has been used to derive quasar distances and to build a Hubble diagram at redshifts up to $z\sim$ 7. This

H i intensity mapping with MeerKAT: Power spectrum detection in cross-correlation with WiggleZ galaxies

We present a detection of correlated clustering between MeerKAT radio intensity maps and galaxies from the WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey. We find a 7.7σ detection of the cross-correlation power

The lure of sirens: Joint distance and velocity measurements with third generation detectors

The next generation of detectors will detect gravitational waves from binary neutron stars at cosmological distances, for which around a thousand electromagnetic follow-ups may be observed per

Fisher matrix for the one-loop galaxy power spectrum: measuring expansion and growth rates without assuming a cosmological model

We introduce a methodology to extend the Fisher matrix forecasts to mildly non-linear scales without the need of selecting a cosmological model. We make use of standard non-linear perturbation theory

Primordial non-Gaussianity from the Completed SDSS-IV extended Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey II: Measurements in Fourier Space with optimal weights

We present measurements of the local primordial non-Gaussianity parameter $f_{\rm{NL}}^\rm{local}$from the clustering of 343,708 quasars with redshifts 0.8 < z < 2.2 distributed over 4808 square

Quasar Standardization: Overcoming Selection Biases and Redshift Evolution

Quasars (QSOs) are extremely luminous active galactic nuclei currently observed up to redshift z = 7.642. As such, they have the potential to be the next rung of the cosmic distance ladder beyond

Using lower-redshift, non-CMB, data to constrain the Hubble constant and other cosmological parameters

We use updated Hubble parameter and baryon acoustic oscillation data, as well as other lower-redshift Type Ia supernova, Mg ii reverberation-measured quasar, quasar angular size, H ii starburst

The difference from 4 to 6 σ in the Hubble constant (H0) between the values observed with the local (Cepheids and Supernovae Ia, SNe Ia) and the high-z probes (Cosmic Microwave Background obtained by

The resilience of the etherington–hubble relation

The Etherington reciprocity theorem, or distance duality relation (DDR), relates the mutual scaling of cosmic distances in any metric theory of gravity where photons are massless and propagate on
