As the Einstein equations are non-linear, spatial averaging and temporal evolution do not commute. Therefore, the evolution of the averaged universe is affected by inhomogeneities. It is, however, highly controversial how large these cosmological backreaction effects are. We use the supernova data of the Constitution set up to a redshift of 0.1 in order to analyse to what extent the measurement of the Hubble constant is affected. The size of the effect depends on the size of the volume that is… Expand
