Gamma-ray bursts as dark energy-matter probes in the context of the generalized Chaplygin gas model

In this paper we consider the use of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) as distance markers to study the unification of dark energy and dark matter in the context of the so-called generalized Chaplygin gas (GCG) model. We consider that the GRB luminosity may be estimated from its variability and time-lag, and we also use the so-called Ghirlanda relation. We evaluate the improvements...

Latest supernova data in the framework of the generalized Chaplygin gas model

We use the most recent Type Ia supernova data in order to study the dark energy–dark matter (XCDM) unification approach in the context of the generalized Chaplygin gas (GCG) model. Rather surprisingly, we find that data allow models with α > 1. We have studied how the GCG adjusts flat and non-flat models, and our results show that GCG is consistent with a flat case up to 68 per...
