Review of SNLS results
V. Ruhlmann-Kleider
The SuperNova Legacy Survey was in operation from 2003 to 2008 at the Canada-France-Hawaii telescope. The aim of the survey was to detect around 500 supernovae of type Ia (SNe Ia) in the redshift range between 0.2 and 1, to confirm them with spectroscopic data and to measure their multicolor lightcurves with unprecedented precision and time sampling. Results obtained by the collaboration encompass measurements of the cosmological parameters Omega_M, Omega_Lambda and w, as well as SNIa explosion rate measurements and comparisons between different sub-samples of SNe Ia events in order to search for possible biases in the use of SNe Ia as cosmological probes. The main results relevant to cosmology are hereafter reviewed.
