Comment on Varshni's recent paper on quasar red shifts
- 21 Downloads
A recent paper (Varshni, 1976) analyses the distribution of quasar red shifts for randomness, in an incorrect manner. A correct analysis shows that this distribution is in agreement with random expectation. Were the distribution highly non-random, the original conclusion was that, for the red shifts to be cosmological, the Earth would have a strongly privileged position in the Universe. A simple alternative model, in which this would not be so, is pointed out.
