We present the first determination of the Hubble constant H_{0} from strong lensing time delay data and type Ia supernova luminosity distances that is independent of the cosmological model. We also determine the spatial curvature model independently. We assume that light propagation over long distances is described by the Friedmann-Lemaître-Robertson-Walker (FLRW) metric and geometrical optics holds, but make no assumption about the contents of the Universe or the theory of gravity on…

H0LiCOW – XIII. A 2.4 per cent measurement of H0 from lensed quasars: 5.3σ tension between early- and late-Universe probes
We present a measurement of the Hubble constant (H0) and other cosmological parameters from a joint analysis of six gravitationally lensed quasars with measured time delays. All lenses except the
Measurements of the Hubble constant and cosmic curvature with quasars: ultracompact radio structure and strong gravitational lensing
Although the Hubble constant $H_0$ and spatial curvature $\Omega_{K}$ have been measured with very high precision, they still suffer from some tensions. In this paper, we propose an improved method
Determining Model-independent H 0 and Consistency Tests
We determine the Hubble constant $H_0$ precisely ($2.3\%$ uncertainty) in a manner independent of cosmological model through Gaussian process regression, using strong lensing and supernova data.
Cosmology-independent Estimate of the Hubble Constant and Spatial Curvature using Time-delay Lenses and Quasars
With the distance sum rule in the Friedmann-Lema\^itre-Robertson-Walker metric, model-independent constraints on both the Hubble constant $H_0$ and spatial curvature $\Omega_{K}$ can be obtained
Measuring the Hubble function with standard candle clustering
Supernova Ia magnitude surveys measure the dimensionless luminosity distance $H_{0}D_{L}$. However, from the distances alone one cannot obtain quantities like $H(z)$ or the dark energy equation of
Model independent measurement on the cosmic curvature
Inflation predicts that the Universe is spatially flat. The Planck 2018 measurements of the cosmic microwave background anisotropy favour a spatially closed universe at more than 2$\sigma$ confidence
Model-independent Estimation of H 0 and Ω K from Strongly Lensed Fast Radio Bursts
Model-independent estimation of H 0 and Ω K can provide clues about the origin of the intractable Hubble constant tension and the current cosmic-curvature crisis. Strongly lensed fast radio bursts
Model independent comparison of supernova and strong lensing cosmography: Implications for the Hubble constant tension
We use supernovae measurements, calibrated by the local determination of the Hubble constant $H_0$ by SH0ES, to interpolate the distance-redshift relation using Gaussian process regression. We then
Measurement on the cosmic curvature using the Gaussian process method
Inflation predicts that the Universe is spatially flat. The Planck 2018 measurements of the cosmic microwave background anisotropy favour a spatially closed universe at more than 2$\sigma$ confidence
Strongly lensed type Ia supernovae as a precise late-universe probe of measuring the Hubble constant and cosmic curvature
Strongly lensed type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) are expected to have some advantages in measuring time delays of multiple images, and so they have a great potential to be developed into a powerful
