where Ryden uses the notation m − M for the distance modulus, and dL is the luminosity distance. The luminosity distance, in turn, is really a measure of the observed brightness of the object. It is defined as the distance of that the object would have to be located to result in the observed brightness, if we were living in a static Euclidean universe. More… (More)
