Observational Cosmology

Ariel Goobar

Birth of observational cosmology (1929) Edwin Hubble’s discovery: Universe expands!

Hubble law:

= time derivative of universal scale factor

Pioneering work: redshift of nebulae VestoSlipher (1875- 1969)

Pioneering work: redshift of nebulae VestoSlipher (1875- 1969)

Pioneering work: redshift of nebulae VestoSlipher (1875- 1969)

1917: evidence for expansion existed already in this data, but there was no theoretical prediction suggesting that at the time…

Estimates of H0 from Type Ia Supernovae: accuratedistances!

Type Ia supernovae as standard candles: bright homogeneous objects, excellent for distance estimates

Supernova classification

Best ”standard candles” we know today

What systems could lead to SNeIa?

Single degenerate

Double degenerate

CSM more likely in SD scenario

Luminosity Distance

- where F(x) = sin(x) for a closed universe, sinh(x) for an open universe and x for a flat universe. In the latter case the ΩKterms are set to 1.

through observations of distant supernovae”

Is it really Einstein’s Λ?Dark Energy EoS, w=p/ρ

- Λ-hypothesis (w=-1) unchallenged by observations
- Theoretical understanding still lacking
- Expected vacuum energy density, ρvac, has w=-1,but >1056 times off!
