  • Using measurements of H(z) and dA(z) from the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) DR12 and luminosity distances from the Joint Lightcurve Analysis (JLA) compilation of supernovae (SN), we measure H0rd without any model assumption. Our measurement of H0 rd = (10033.20+333.10−371.81 (SN) ± 128.19 (BAO)) km s−1 is consistent with Planck constrains for the flat ΛCDM model. We also report that higher expansion history rates h(z) (among the possibilities) as well as lower-bound values of… CONTINUE READING
