Abstract We use cosmology-independent measurements of the expansion history in the redshift range 0.1 ≲ z 1.2 and compare them with the Cosmic Microwave Background-derived expansion history predictions. The motivation is to investigate if the tension between the local (cosmology independent) Hubble constant H 0 value and the Planck-derived H 0 is also present at other redshifts. We conclude that there is no tension between Planck and cosmology independent-measurements of the Hubble parameter H… Expand

Raising the bar: new constraints on the Hubble parameter with cosmic chronometers at z ∼ 2
One of the most compelling tasks of modern cosmology is to constrain the expansion history of the Universe, since this measurement can give insights on the nature of dark energy and help to estimateExpand
The 1% Concordance Hubble Constant
The determination of the Hubble constant has been a central goal in observational astrophysics for nearly a hundred years. Extraordinary progress has occurred in recent years on two fronts: theExpand

Cosmic variance and the measurement of the local Hubble parameter.
It is shown that one would need a very rare fluctuation to fully explain the offset in the Hubble rates, and if this tension is further strengthened, a cosmology beyond the Standard Model may prove necessary. Expand
