  • Cosmology with photometrically classified type IA supernovae from the SDSS-II supernova survey 

    Campbell, Heather; D’Andrea, Chris B.; Nichol, Robert C.; Sako, Masao; Smith, Mathew (The American Astronomical Society, 2013)
    We present the cosmological analysis of 752 photometrically–classified Type Ia Supernovae (SNe Ia) obtained from the full Sloan Digital Sky Survey II (SDSS-II) Supernova (SN) Survey, supplemented with host–galaxy ...
  • Properties of Type Ia supernovae inside rich galaxy clusters 

    Xavier, Henrique S.; Gupta, Ravi R.; Smith, Mathew; Sako, Masao; D’Andrea, Chris B.; Frieman, Joshua A.; Galbany, Lluis; Garnavich, Peter M.; Marriner, John; Nichol, Robert C.; Olmstead, Matthew D.; Schneider, Donald P. (Oxford University Press, 2013)
    We used the Gaussian Mixture Brightest Cluster Galaxy catalogue and Sloan Digital Sky Survey-II supernovae data with redshifts measured by the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey to identify 48 Type Ia supernovae ...
  • SN Ia host galaxy properties from Sloan Digital Sky Survey-II spectroscopy 

    Johansson, Jonas; Thomas, Daniel; Smith, Mathew; Pforr, Janine; Maraston, Claudia; Nichol, Robert C.; Lampeitl, Hubert; Beifiori, Alessandra; Gupta, Ravi R.; Schneider, Donald P. (Oxford University Press, 2013)
    We study the stellar populations of Type Ia supernova (SN Ia) host galaxies using Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS)-II spectroscopy. The main focus is on the relationships of SN Ia properties with stellar velocity dispersion ...
