The expansion field: the value of H0. Tammann G.A., Sandage A., Reindl B. <Astron. Astrophys. Rev., 15, 289-331 (2008)> =2008A&ARv..15..289T
ADC_Keywords: Galaxy catalogs ; Stars, distances ; Radial velocities Keywords: stars: population II - Cepheids - supernovae: general - distance scale - cosmological parameters Abstract: Any calibration of the present value of the Hubble constant (H0) requires recession velocities and distances of galaxies. While the conversion of observed velocities into true recession velocities has only a small effect on the result, the derivation of unbiased distances which rest on a solid zero point and cover a useful range of about 4-30Mpc is crucial. A list of 279 such galaxy distances within v<2000km/s is given which are derived from the tip of the red-giant branch (TRGB), from Cepheids, and/or from supernovae of type Ia (SNe Ia). File Summary:
