New perspective about the existence of a supermassive black hole in a quasar with double redshift systems

  • Basil Petropoulos
  • Manos Mavrogiannis


Research of several years has confirmed the general aspect that the most acceptable model in quasars' nuclei is a rotating Kerr black hole.

Assuming the Kerr type potential given by the equation:
$$V_{{\text{Kerr}}} (r) = 1 - \frac{1}{{r - r_0 }} + \frac{1}{2}\omega ^2 r^2 ,$$
we introduce a new theory about the central object in the nucleus of quasars, that explains satisfactorily the perturbations of their spectral lines.
