Accelerating Universe: Observational Status and Theoretical Implications

  • Leandros Perivolaropoulos
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 720)

Abstract

This is a pedagogical review of the recent observational data obtained from type Ia supernova surveys that support the accelerating expansion of the universe. The methods for the analysis of the data are reviewed and the theoretical implications obtained from their analysis are discussed.
