<b>High Energy-Astrophysics</b><br><i>Water in the Desert: SDSS Supernova Survey Initial Cosmology Results and Future Plans</i>

Monday, November 9, 2009
12:00 AM
335 West Hall

Speaker: David Cinabro (Wayne State University)

Professor Cinabro will describe the initial cosmology results from the SDSS Supernova Survey based on the first year of the three year data set. Besides a Hubble diagram analysis for cosmological parameters, his team has also considered non-standard cosmologies and compared with other intermediate redshift datasets that are sensitive to cosmology. Professor Cinabro will discuss his team's plans for future analysis of the full dataset.
