Dark energy and the accelerated expansion of the Universe

Recent observations indicate that the expansion of the Universe is accelerating. This suggests the existence of some kind of exotic matter with negative pressure. The simplest possibility is a cosmological constant but there are alternatives, as for instance an evolving scalar field. In this paper we explore constraints from lensing statistics and high-z type Ia Supernovae on some of these alternatives.
