comment Units and missing constants in quintessence expressions?
@KyleKanos: well spotted. First, personnally, if I do not know the physical dimensions of the quantities I am manipulating I consider that there is a problem. Second, if you are scaling everything in the same manner, it does not change the precision since your floating point numbers are still represented by a mantissa and an exponent (and in double precision you can go up to 10^308 before starting to have problems...)

comment Units and missing constants in quintessence expressions?
@AntonioRagagnin: this is what they say. But my personal experience with some particle physicist is that they have a hard time when a numerical physicist come to ask them the units of the quantity they are manipulating... (and the simple fact that this question has not been answered yet suggest that this is not that simple)

comment Units and missing constants in quintessence expressions?
@KyleKanos: I agree, they are not neglected, the equation is juste in natural units.

I don't care whether it is close or not ... I want to know if it is true or not...

comment Luminosity distance from angular diameter distance
@Jim Ok, I will rephrase the problem the other way. Consider a completely perturbed Universe in which I know, for a particular object: $x_{object}$ and $\theta_{observer}$ (I know them numerically, I do not have any expressions of them). Is there a way to compute $D_{L}$ from that ?
