The dipole of the luminosity distance : a direct measure of H(z)

Published inPhysical review letters, vol. 96, no. 191302, 4
Publication date2006

We show that the dipole of the luminosity distance is a useful observational tool which allows us to determine the Hubble parameter as a function of redshift H(z). We determine the number of supernovae needed to achieve a given precision for H(z) and to distinguish between different models for dark energy. We analyze a sample of nearby supernovae and find a dipole consistent with the cosmic microwave background at a significance of more than 2σ.
