Session 1. The Redshift


A project intended to examine the long-standing claims that extragalactic redshifts are periodic or ‘quantized’ was initiated some years ago at the Royal Observatory, Edinburgh. The approach taken is outlined, and the main conclusions to date are summarized. The existence of a galactocentric redshift quantization is confirmed at a high confidence level.
