    Title: new constraints on cosmological parameters from SNIa data

    Abstract: In this informal talk I will describe a new Bayesian hierarchical model for cosmological parameters constraints from SALTII lightcurve fits of SNIa data. I will demonstrate that our new method delivers constraints that are up to 40% tighter than can be obtained from the standard chi-square procedure. I will also sketch how the Bayesian approach can be applied to estimate systematic errors.


    All are welcome.

    Warm Regards
    Michelle
