The Transient Universe: Cosmic Explosions and Dark Energy

Mark Sullivan, Royal Society University Research Fellow, Oxford

22 Mar 2012 - 16:00

Type Ia Supernovae (SNe Ia) provide our most mature probe of dark energy. I will present the latest dark energy constraints from the Supernova Legacy Survey, including new astrophysical effects in the SN Ia population that are refining their use as cosmological probes. I will then show recent results from the next generation of local transient surveys, including details of new constraints on SN Ia progenitors.
