Gravitational-wave detections provide a novel way to determine the Hubble constant1–3, which is the current rate of expansion of the Universe. This ‘standard siren’ method, with the absolute distance calibration provided by the general theory of relativity, was used to measure the Hubble constant using the gravitational-wave detection of the binary neutron-star merger, GW170817, by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) and Virgo4, combined with optical identification of…

We present a measurement of the Hubble constant $H_0$ using the gravitational wave (GW) event GW190814, which resulted from the coalescence of a 23 $M_\odot$ black hole with a 2.6 $M_\odot$ compact

The detection of GW170817 is revolutionizing many areas of astrophysics with the joint observation of gravitational waves and electromagnetic emissions. These multi-messenger events provide a new
Velocity correction for Hubble constant measurements from standard sirens
Gravitational wave (GW) sources are an excellent probe of the luminosity distance and offer a novel measure of the Hubble constant, H0. This estimation of H0 from standard sirens requires an accurate
Multi-messenger constraints on the Hubble constant through combination of gravitational waves, gamma-ray bursts and kilonovae from neutron star mergers
The simultaneous detection of gravitational waves and light from the binary neutron star merger GW170817 led to independent measurements of distance and redshift, providing a direct estimate of the
Supernova calibration by gravitational wave
Hubble tension is one of the most important problems in cosmology. The local measurements on the Hubble constant with Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) suffer from the problem of zero-point calibration of
A Future Percent-level Measurement of the Hubble Expansion at Redshift 0.8 with Advanced LIGO
Simultaneous measurements of distance and redshift can be used to constrain the expansion history of the universe and associated cosmological parameters. Merging binary black hole (BBH) systems are
Systematic Uncertainty of Standard Sirens from the Viewing Angle of Binary Neutron Star Inspirals.
The systematic uncertainty from the viewing angle might be a major challenge before the standard sirens can resolve the tension in the Hubble constant, which is currently ∼9%.


A gravitational-wave standard siren measurement of the Hubble constant
A measurement of the Hubble constant is reported that combines the distance to the source inferred purely from the gravitational-wave signal with the recession velocity inferred from measurements of the redshift using the electromagnetic data.
Determining the Hubble constant from gravitational wave observations of merging compact binaries
Recent observations have accumulated compelling evidence that some short gamma-ray bursts (SGRBs) are associated with the mergers of neutron star (NS) binaries. This would indicate that the SGRB

Observations of the gravitational radiation from well-localized, inspiraling compact-object binaries can measure absolute source distances with high accuracy. When coupled with an independent
A 2.4% Determination of the Local Value of the Hubble Constant
We use the Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) on the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) to reduce the uncertainty in the local value of the Hubble constant (H_0) from 3.3% to 2.4%. Improvements come from new,
Determining the Hubble constant from gravitational wave observations
I report here how gravitational wave observations can be used to determine the Hubble constant, H0. The nearly monochromatic gravitational waves emitted by the decaying orbit of an ultra–compact,
Measuring the Hubble Constant with Neutron Star Black Hole Mergers.
Better distance measurement, the larger gravitational-wave detectable volume, and the potentially bright electromagnetic emission imply that spinning black hole neutron star binaries can be the optimal standard-siren sources as long as their astrophysical rate is larger than O(10)  Gpc^{-3} yr^{-1}, a value allowed by current astrophysical constraints.
