It is well known that the peak brightness of Type Ia supernovae calibrated with Cepheid distances can be used to determine the Hubble constant. The Cepheid distances to the host galaxies of the calibrating supernovae are usually obtained using the period-luminosity (P-L) relation derived from Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) Cepheids. However, recent empirical studies provide evidence that the LMC P-L relation is not linear. Here we determine the Hubble constant using both the linear and nonlinear… Expand
