Dark Energy: Nature and Robustness
Supernovae have provided the evidence for the existence of a dominant dark energy component of the Universe. The commonly accepted form of such a component is the quintessence. Here, we show that the possible nature of this component is rather well constrained by combining the various existing observational cosmological data. However, relaxing some of the various hypothesis can lead to somewhat different results.
