Constraints on kinematic models from the latest observational data

By Jianbo Lu, Lixin Xu and Molin Liu


Kinematical models are constrained by the latest observational data from geometry-distance measurements, which include 557 type Ia supernovae (SNIa) Union2 data and 15 observational Hubble data. Considering two parameterized deceleration parameter, the values of current deceleration parameter $q_{0}$, jerk parameter $j_{0}$ and transition redshift $z_{T}$, are obtained. Furthermore, we show the departures for two parameterized kinematical models from $\Lambda$CDM model according to the evolutions of jerk parameter $j(z)$. Also, it is shown that the constraint on jerk parameter $j(z)$ is weak by the current geometrical observed data.Comment: 8 pages, 2 figure
