Observational Probes of the Accelerating Expansion w(z) is close to -1 w(z) crossing the w=-1 w(z) crossing the w=-1 Inconsistent with Minimally Coupled Quintessence and also with Scalar Tensor Quintessence if G(t) is increasing with time. Marginal Consistency of Scalar-Tensor Quintessence with Observed Accelerating Expansion Maximal Agreement of Scalar-Tensor Quintessence with the Full Parameter Range of Observed Acelerating Expansion G(t) can not increase rapidly with t (not sharp Maximum) Close to Extremum (Solar System) G(t) decreases with t (close to a Minimum) Close to Extremum (Solar System) SNLS

All best fit parameterizations cross the phantom divide at z~0.25 The parametrization with the best χ 2 is oscillating Lazkoz, Nesseris, LP 2005

Trunc. Gold (140 points, z<1) Full Gold (157 points, z<1.7)SNLS (115 points z<1) SNLS data show no trend for crossing the phantom divide w=-1! S. Nesseris, L.P. Phys. Rev. D72:123519, 2005 astro-ph/0511040

Q1: What theories are consistent with range of observed H(z)? Cosmological Constant Quintessence Extended (Scalar–Tensor) Quintessence Braneworld models (eg DGP) Barotropic fluids (eg Chaplygin Gas) Q2: What forms of H(z) are inconsistent with each theory? (forbidden sectors) Q3: What is the overlap of the observationally allowed range of H(z) with the forbidden sector of each theory? Goal: Address Q2-Q3 for Extended Quintessence

SnIa Absolute Luminosity: Steps of Analysis: 1. Assume G(z) parametrization consistent with Solar System + Nucleosynthesis bounds 2. Consider modified magnitude-redshift relation 3. Minimize χ 2

24
The shift of the contours is not significant compared to the area of the contours.
