Abstract

We present the first cosmological parameter constraints using measurements of type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) from the Dark Energy Survey Supernova Program (DES-SN). The analysis uses a subsample of 207 spectroscopically confirmed SNe Ia from the first three years of DES-SN, combined with a low-redshift sample of 122 SNe from the literature. Our "DES-SN3YR" result from these 329 SNe Ia is based on a series of companion analyses and improvements covering SN Ia discovery, spectroscopic selection, photometry, calibration, distance bias corrections, and evaluation of systematic uncertainties. For a flat ΛCDM model we find a matter density ${{\rm{\Omega }}}_{{\rm{m}}}=0.331\pm 0.038$. For a flat wCDM model, and combining our SN Ia constraints with those from the cosmic microwave background (CMB), we find a dark energy equation of state $w=-0.978\pm 0.059$, and ${{\rm{\Omega }}}_{{\rm{m}}}=0.321\pm 0.018$. For a flat w 0 w a CDM model, and combining probes from SN Ia, CMB and baryon acoustic oscillations, we find ${w}_{0}=-0.885\pm 0.114$ and ${w}_{a}=-0.387\,\pm \,0.430$. These results are in agreement with a cosmological constant and with previous constraints using SNe Ia (Pantheon, JLA).
