Science goals
Science Goals

  • Improve statistical constraints on dark energy

    • 2x improvement for SNLS, Essence, SNAP

  • Improve systematics uncertainties on dark energy

    • Better calibration of SN properties

    • Span wide range of physical & empirical parameters

    • Constrain SN physics

  • 300 Type Ia SNe

    • in the nearby smooth Hubble flow

    • with many-epoch spectrophotometry
