We assess the possibility of determining the Hubble constant H0 by measuring time delays between multiple images of supernovae gravitationally lensed by rich clusters of galaxies and combining these delay measurements with detailed cluster-potential models based on other lensing constraints. Such a lensing determination of H0 would be complementary to those… (More)
