The use of supernovae as Cosmological Standard Candles has matured in the last sixteen years to the point that these objects are now the distance indicator of choice for measuring the Hubble constant, the deceleration parameter, and the geometry of the universe.
We are using supernovae type Ia to apply some constraints on cosmological parameters.
