  1. 1. Gravitational perturbations in plasmas and cosmology

    Author : Mats Forsberg; Gert Brodin; Michael Bradley; Christopher Clarkson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; general relativity; cosmology; gravitational waves; plasma; electromagnetic waves; nonlinear waves; Plasma physics; Plasmafysik; Theory of relativity; gravitation; Relativitetsteori; gravitation; Cosmology; Kosmologi; teoretisk fysik; Theoretical Physics;

    Abstract : Gravitational perturbations can be in the form of scalars, vectors or tensors. This thesis focuses on the evolution of scalar perturbations in cosmology, and interactions between tensor perturbations, in the form of gravitational waves, and plasma waves. READ MORE

  2. 2. Spectral Properties of Type Ia Supernovae and Implications for Cosmology

    Author : Jakob Nordin; Ariel Goobar; Mark Phillips; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; cosmology; spectroscopy; supernovae; Physics; Fysik; Cosmology; Kosmologi; Extragalactical astronomy; Extragalaktisk astronomi; fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : Type Ia supernovae can, for a short period of time, reach the same brightness as an entire galaxy. They are responsible for the creation of a large fraction of all heavy elements and can be used, as standard candles, to prove that the expansion of the universe is accelerating. Yet, we do not fully understand them. READ MORE

  3. 3. Observations of distant supernovae and cosmological implications

    Author : Rahman Amanullah; Ariel Goobar; Adam Riess; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cosmological parameters; cosmology; astro physics; supernovae; type Ia supernova; Cosmology; Kosmologi;

    Abstract : Type Ia supernovae can be used as distance indicators for probing the expansion history of the Universe. The method has proved to be an efficient tool in cosmology and played a decisive role in the discovery of a yet unknown energy form, dark energy, that drives the accelerated expansion of the Universe.

  4. 4. Relativistic fireworks cosmology

    Author : Lennart Widlund; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fyrverkeri;

    Abstract : .... READ MORE

  5. 5. Type Ia Supernova Cosmology : Quantitative Spectral Analysis

    Author : Gastón Folatelli; Ariel Goobar; Enrico Cappellaro; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Supernova; Cosmology; Spectroscopy; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Type Ia supernovae have been successfully used as standardized candles to study the expansion history of the Universe. In the past few years, these studies led to the exciting result of an accelerated expansion caused by the repelling action of some sort of dark energy. READ MORE
