Quantatitive analysis of type Ia supernova spectra and implications for cosmology

Abstract:

This thesis presents the spectroscopic observations of the Supernova Legacy Survey (SNLS) from the Gemini-North telescope from May 2006 – May 2008. During this time 68 of 95 targets were confirmed as Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) or classified as probable SNe Ia events. We use these objects and reanalyse other high-z spectra obtained as part of SNLS to search for signs of evolution in SNe Ia properties. To do this we use a multicolour method to remove host galaxy contamination from the high...
