    • Abstract


      A specific class of singularity-free cosmological model has recently been considered in light of different observational data such as observed Hubble data, BAO data from luminous red galaxy survey by Slowan digital sky survey (SDSS) and CMB data from WMAP. However, it is observed that only 12–14 data points are used to study the viability of the model in late time. In this paper, we discuss the viability of all the models belonging to the same class of EU in light of union compilation data (SNIa) which consists of over a hundred data points, thus getting a more robust test for viability. More importantly, it is crucial that we can distinguish between the various models proposed in the class of solution obtained. We discuss here why with the present observational data it is difficult to distinguish between all of them. We show that the late-time behaviour of the model is typical to any asymptotically de Sitter model.
