The Hubble constant (H_{0}) estimated from the local Cepheid-supernova distance ladder is in 3-σ tension with the value extrapolated from cosmic microwave background (CMB) data assuming the standard cosmological model. Whether this tension represents new physics or systematic effects is the subject of intense debate. Here, we investigate how new, independent H_{0} estimates can arbitrate this tension, assessing whether the measurements are consistent with being derived from the same model using…

Model independentH(z) reconstruction using the cosmic inverse distance ladder

Recent distance ladder determinations of the Hubble constant $H_0$ disagree at about the $3.5\sigma$ level with the value determined from Planck measurements of the cosmic microwave background (CMB)

Cosmological Model Insensitivity of Local H0 from the Cepheid Distance Ladder

The observed tension (∼9% difference) between the local distance ladder measurement of the Hubble constant, H0, and its value inferred from the cosmic microwave background could hint at new, exotic,

No-go guide for late-time solutions to the Hubble tension: Matter perturbations

The Hubble tension seems to be a crisis with ∼ 5 σ discrepancy between the most recent local distance ladder measurement from type Ia supernovae calibrated by Cepheids and the global fitting

We explore cosmological implications of a genuinely Weyl invariant (WI) gravitational interaction. The latter reduces to general relativity in a particular conformal frame for which the gravitational

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%.

First cosmological results using Type Ia supernovae from the Dark Energy Survey: measurement of the Hubble constant

We present an improved measurement of the Hubble constant (H0) using the ‘inverse distance ladder’ method, which adds the information from 207 Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) from the Dark Energy

Probing observational bounds on scalar-tensor theories from standard sirens

Standard sirens are the gravitational wave (GW) analog of the astronomical standard candles, and can provide powerful information about the dynamics of the Universe. In this work, we simulate a

New physics in light of the H0 tension: An alternative view

The strong discrepancy between local and early-time (inverse distance ladder) estimates of the Hubble constant H0 could be pointing towards new physics beyond the concordance ΛCDM model. Several

Quantifying tensions in cosmological parameters: Interpreting the DES evidence ratio

The Dark Energy Survey (DES) first year analysis is concluded that DES and Planck are, in a Bayesian sense, incompatible under LCDM, and the Bayesian model dimensionality is introduced in a cosmological setting.



The trouble with H0

We perform a comprehensive cosmological study of the H0 tension between the direct local measurement and the model-dependent value inferred from the Cosmic Microwave Background. With the recent

Sample variance in the local measurements of the Hubble constant

The current $>3\sigma$ tension between the Hubble constant $H_0$ measured from local distance indicators and from cosmic microwave background is one of the most highly debated issues in cosmology, as

Insensitivity of the distance ladder Hubble constant determination to Cepheid calibration modelling choices

Recent determination of the Hubble constant via Cepheid-calibrated supernovae by \citet{riess_2.4_2016} (R16) find $\sim 3\sigma$ tension with inferences based on cosmic microwave background

Dynamical dark energy in light of the latest observations

A flat Friedmann–Robertson–Walker universe dominated by a cosmological constant (Λ) and cold dark matter (CDM) has been the working model preferred by cosmologists since the discovery of cosmic
