# Robust and model-independent cosmological constraints from distance measurements

@article{Zhai2019RobustAM, title={Robust and model-independent cosmological constraints from distance measurements}, author={Zhongxu Zhai and Yun Wang}, journal={Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics}, year={2019} }

We present a systematic analysis of the cosmological constraints from the "Pantheon Sample" of 1048 Type Ia Supernovae (SNe Ia) in the redshift range 0.01<z<2.3 compiled by Scolnic et al. (2018). Applying the flux-averaging method for detecting unknown systematic effects, we find that the "Pantheon" sample has been well calibrated and the bias caused by unknown systematic errors has been minimized. We present the estimate of distances measured from SNe Ia and reconstruct the expansion history… Expand
