Segal's mechanism for the red shift and its physical bases

  • Jan Tarski
Article

Abstract

Segal's mechanism for the red shift is reviewed, and is examined from several points of view. In particular, its compatibility with the expansion hypothesis is discussed. An appendix is devoted to some new considerations on cosmic numbers.
