NPAC (Nuclear/Particle/Astro/Cosmo) Forum
Supernova Cosmology Results from the Dark Energy Survey
Time: 12:00 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Richard Kessler, University of Chicago
Abstract: Roughly 9 months after the end of the 5-year transient search in the Dark Energy Survey (DES), DES submitted a series of papers describing its first cosmology results based on measuring cosmic distances for a small fraction of the Type Ia Supernova sample. I will give an overview of DES, our first results, and the analysis, highlighting where we have made improvements necessary to reduce uncertainties. I will also briefly describe future prospects for SN Ia cosmology with DES (full sample) and the WFIRST space mission.
