Constraints on Cosmic Distance Duality Relation from Cosmological Observations

In this paper, we use the model dependent method to revisit the constraint on the well-known cosmic distance duality relation (CDDR). By using the latest SNIa samples, such as Union2.1, JLA and SNLS, we find that the SNIa data alone can not constrain the cosmic opacity parameter?ε, which denotes the deviation from the CDDR,?dL=dA(1+z)2+ε, very well. The constraining power on?ε?from the luminosity distance indicator provided by SNIa and GRB is hardly to be improved at present. When we include other cosmological observations, such as the measurements of Hubble parameter, the baryon acoustic oscillations and the distance information from cosmic microwave background, we obtain the tightest constraint on the cosmic opacity parameter?ε, namely the 68\% C.L. limit:?ε=0.023±0.018. Furthermore, we also consider the evolution of?ε?as a function of?z?using two methods, the parametrization and the principle component analysis, and do not find the evidence for the deviation from zero. Finally, we simulate the future SNIa and Hubble measurements and find the mock data could give very tight constraint on the cosmic opacity?ε?and verify the CDDR at high significance

Cosmographic analysis from distance indicator and dynamical redshift drift

Cosmography is a model-independent de 1. To ensure data in the convergence radius, y=z/(1+z) redshift was defined. However, discussions about the usefulness of y-redshift and the leading cause of the issue are commonly absent. In the present paper, we study the cosmography in both z and y redshift using the supernova and mock redshift drift data. By introducing the bias-variance tradeoff, we reveal that the large bias square between cosmography and Union2.1 supernova data is the "chief culprit" of convergence issue. Moreover, expansion up to higher order and introduction of the y-redshift both are not effective to reconcile this contradiction. Minimizing risk, it suggests that Taylor expansion up to the second term is a better choice for available supernova data. Forecast from future supernova data and redshift drift shows that redshift drift can give much tighter constraints on the cosmography. We also investigate the effect of convergence issue on the deceleration parameter and dark energy. It inspires us that dynamical observations including redshift drift can give more detailed information on cosmic evolution
