Abstract

A new method for constraining the Hubble constant, based on proper motions and Inverse Compton Doppler factors of superluminally expanding jets, is presented. This approach relies on statistical Monte-Carlo simulations of the most probable viewing angle (θ) and the relativistic velocity of particles in a jet (β). According to recent constraints on the… (More)
