Abstract (from CDS):

This paper presents the calibration of BVRIH–0.5 Tully-Fisher relations based on Cepheid distances to 21 galaxies within 25 Mpc and 23 clusters within 10,000 km.s–1. These relations have been applied to several distant cluster surveys in order to derive a value for the Hubble constant, H0, mainly concentrating on an I-band all-sky survey by Giovanelli and collaborators, consisting of total I magnitudes and 50% line width data for ∼550 galaxies in 16 clusters. For comparison, we also derive the values of H0 using surveys in the B and V bands by Bothun and collaborators, and in H band by Aaronson and collaborators. Careful comparisons with various other databases from the literature suggest that the H-band data, which have isophotal magnitudes extrapolated from aperture magnitudes rather than total magnitudes, are subject to systematic uncertainties. Taking a weighted average of the estimates of Hubble constants from four surveys, we obtain H0=71±4 (random)±7 (systematic). We have also investigated how the value of H0 is affected by various systematic uncertainties, such as the internal extinction correction method used, Tully-Fisher slopes and shapes, a possible metallicity dependence of the Cepheid period-luminosity relation, and cluster population incompleteness bias.
