1988ApJ...328....1S THE HUBBLE CONSTANT FROM PRITCHET AND VAN DEN BERGH'S NOVA DISTANCE TO THE VIRGO CLUSTER ALLAN SANDAGE Department of Physics and Astronomy, The Johns Hopkins University; Space Telescope Science Institute; and Mount Wilson and Las Campanas Observatories AND G. A. TAMMANN Astronomisches Institut der Universitat Basel; and European Southern Observatory Received 1987 August 10; accepted 1987 October 20 ABSTRACT A value of H_0_ = 58 +/- 12 km s^-1^ Mpc^-1^ is justified from Pritchet and van den Bergh's data for novae in the Virgo cluster, using <V> = 1196 +/- 67 km s^-1^ rather than 1336 +/- 54 for the "cosmological" velocity of the Virgo cluster core (corrected for solar motion and Virgo infall), and m - M = 31.57 rather than 31.45 for the cluster modulus. The 1 {sigma} limits from this particular data set via the Virgo cluster novae are 45 < H_0_ < 75, consistent with H_0_ = 50 +/- 10 obtained from a number of unbiased current distance indicators that have been analyzed for the global value of H_0_. Subject headings: cosmology - galaxies: clustering - galaxies: distances - stars: novae
