1992ARA&A..30..359B Type IA supernovae as standard candles Branch, David; Tammann, G. A. Abstract. The status of the observational homogeneity of Ia supernovae is summarized. The calibration of the SN Ia absolute magnitude is then discussed, with attention given to historical galactic supernovae, SNe Ia in the Virgo cluster, thermal emission, and nickel-cobalt radioactivity. Finally, prospects for applications of SNe Ia as distance indicators for cosmology are examined. Key words: COSMOLOGY, INTERSTELLAR EXTINCTION, STELLAR LUMINOSITY, SUPERNOVA REMNANTS, WHITE DWARF STARS, CHANDRASEKHAR EQUATION, LIGHT CURVE, VISIBLE SPECTRUM
