# Constraints on the DGP Universe using observational Hubble parameter

@article{Wan2007ConstraintsOT, title={Constraints on the DGP Universe using observational Hubble parameter}, author={Hao-Yi Wan and Ze-Long Yi and Tong-Jie Zhang and Jie Zhou}, journal={Physics Letters B}, year={2007}, volume={651}, pages={352-356} }

Abstract In this work, we use observations of the Hubble parameter from the differential ages of passively evolving galaxies and the recent detection of the Baryon Acoustic Oscillations (BAO) at z 1 = 0.35 to constrain the Dvali–Gabadadze–Porrati (DGP) Universe. For the case with a curvature term, we set a prior h = 0.73 ± 0.03 and the best-fit values suggest a spatially closed Universe. For a flat Universe, we set h free and we get consistent results with other recent analyses.
