We investigate constraints on the Hubble constant (H0) using Baryon Acoustic Oscillations (BAO) and baryon density measurements from Big Bang Nucleosynthesis (BBN). We start by investigating the tension between galaxy BAO measurements and those using the Lyman-α forest, within a Bayesian framework. Using the latest results from eBOSS DR14 we find that the probability of this tension being statistical is ≃6.3% assuming flat ΛCDM. We measure H0 = 67.6±1.1 km s−1 Mpc−1, with a weak dependence on… 

The BAO+BBN take on the Hubble tension

Many attempts to solve the Hubble tension with extended cosmological models combine an enhanced relic radiation density, acting at the level of background cosmology, with new physical ingredients

Recombination-independent Determination of the Sound Horizon and the Hubble Constant from BAO

The Hubble tension and attempts to resolve it by modifying the physics of (or at) recombination motivate finding ways to determine H0 and the sound horizon at the epoch of baryon decoupling rd in
