Abstract

We present a detailed and pedagogical analysis of recent cosmological data including CMB, BAO, SnIa and the recent local measurement of $H_0$. We thus obtain constraints on the parameters of these standard Dark Energy parametrizations including ΛCDM, and H(z) deformation models like wCDM (constant equation of state of Dark Energy), and the CPL model (corresponding to evolving dark energy equation of state parameter $ w(z) = w_0 + w_a \frac{z}{1+z} $). The fitted parameters include the dark matter density $\Omega_{0m}$, the SnIa absolute magnitude M, the Hubble constant $H_0$ and the dark energy parameters (eg w for wCDM). All models considered lead to a best fit value of M that is inconsistent with the locally determined value obtained by Cepheid calibrators (M tension). We then use the best fit dark energy parameters to reconstruct the quintessence Lagrangian that would be able to reproduce these best fit parametrizations. Due to the derived late phantom behavior of the best fit dark energy equation of state parameter w(z) the reconstructed quintessence models have a negative kinetic term and are therefore plagued with instabilities.
