Characteristic Q(z) 1.Q(z) is time-varying (i.e. dependent on z) in general. 2.Q(z) is constant within the model M (under consideration). 3.Q(z) plays the role of a key parameter within Model M. 4.Q(z) is a functional of the parametrized physical quantity P(z). 5.Q(z) can be reconstructed from data via the constraint on P(z). 6.dQ(z)/dz can also be reconstructed from data. 7.The (in)compatibility of the observational constraint of M dQ(z)/dz and the theoretical prediction of dQ(z)/dz : “0” tells the (in)consistency between data and Model M. For each model, introduce a characteristic Q(z) with the following features: Gu, CW Chen & P Chen arXiv:0803.4504 E.g., CDM DE (z): energy density w DE (z) = w 0 + w a z/(1+z) Along a similar line of thought, focusing on CDM : Sahni, Shafieloo and Starobinsky, PRD [0807.3548]: Zunckel and Clarkson 2008, PRL101 [0807.4304]:

Summary

30
We proposed an approach to the testing of dark energy models by observational results via a characteristic Q(z) for each model. We performed the consistency test of 5 dark energy models: CDM, generalized Chaplygin gas, and 3 quintessence with exponential, power-law, and inverse-exponential potentials. The exponential potential is ruled out at 95.4% C.L. while the other 4 models are consistent with current data. With the future observations and via our approach: – Exponential potential: distinguishable from the 8 models (under consideration). – Power-law potential: distinguishable from the models with faster evolving w(z) [M3,M4,M7,M8] ; but NOT from those with more slowly evolving w(z) [M1,M2,M5,M6]. Summary and Discussions

31
The consistency test is to examine whether the condition necessary for a model is excluded by observations. Our approach to the consistency test is simple and efficient because: For all models, Q(z) and dQ/dz are reconstructed from data via the observational constraints on a single parameter space that by choice can be easily accessed. By our design of Q(z), the consistency test can be performed without the knowledge of the other parameters of the models. Generally speaking, an approach invoking parametrization may be accompanied by a bias against certain models. This issue requires further investigation. Summary and Discussions (cont.)

32
This approach can be applied to other DE models and other explanations of the cosmic acceleration. The general principle of this approach may be applied to other cosmological models and even those in other fields beyond the scope of cosmology. Summary and Discussions (cont.)
