This case study investigates how well an acceleration hypothesis formulated in 1976—stipulating that the decay rates for supernovae seem to be accelerated by a common factor—fits data accumulated since then. The first Web extra (mcs2012020090s1.zip) contains the .dat files mentioned in the article. The second Web extra is the errata. (This article contains two errata. The article points to an incorrect DOI for the Web Extras. Access the Web Extras here: http://doi.ieeecomputersociety.org/10.1109/MCSE.2012.28. Figure 3 (on p. 95) is also incorrect. The corrected version is available for download as a Web Extra in our Digital Library.)
