Description

Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) are crucial observational tools for exploring the accelerated expansion of the universe. These brilliant explosions are one of the fundamental probes of the Dark Energy Survey (DES) - an international collaboration aiming to understand the mysterious Dark Energy. In the first few years of the survey, the SN Ia group has made exciting progress in SN Ia discovery and pipeline development. This talk will highlight some of the efforts of the DES SN Ia group and describe plans for the future.
