J/MNRAS/457/3470    SN Ia host-galaxy/cosmological parameters  (Campbell+, 2016)

How SN Ia host-galaxy properties affect cosmological parameters. Campbell H., Fraser M., Gilmore G. <Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc., 457, 3470-3491 (2016)> =2016MNRAS.457.3470C (SIMBAD/NED BibCode)

We also investigate the effects of this on the cosmological constraints derived from SNe Ia. Compared to previous studies, our sample is larger by a factor of >4, and covers a substantially larger redshift range (up to z∼0.5), which is directly applicable to the volume of cosmological interest. We measure a significant correlation (>5σ) between the host-galaxy stellar-mass and the SN Ia Hubble Residuals (HR). We find a weak correlation (1.4σ) between the host-galaxy metallicity as measured from emission lines in the spectra, and the SN Ia HR. We also find evidence that the slope of the correlation between host-galaxy mass and HR is -0.11mag/log(Mhost/M) steeper in lower metallicity galaxies. We test the effects on a cosmological analysis using both the derived best-fitting correlations between host parameters and HR, and by allowing an additional free parameter in the fit to account for host properties which we then marginalize over when determining cosmological parameters. We see a shift towards more negative values of the equation-of-state parameter w, along with a shift to lower values of Ωm after applying mass or metallicity corrections. The shift in cosmological parameters with host-galaxy stellar-mass correction is consistent with previous studies. We find a best-fitting cosmology of {OMEGA}_m+=0.266±0.016, {OMEGA}{LAMBDA}=0.740±0.018 and w=-1.151+0.123-0.121 (statistical errors only). Description: We have investigated correlations between SNe Ia light curves and their host galaxies and look at the effect on the cosmological constraints. For this we have used the sample of 581 photometrically classified SNe Ia from Campbell et al. (2013, Cat. J/ApJ/763/88). This sample was assembled from three years of photometry from the SDSS-II SN Survey, together with BOSS spectroscopy of the host galaxies of transients. We use the stellar population parameters derived from the BOSS DR10 results (Ahn et al., 2012ApJS..203...21A, Cat V/139) File Summary:
