Surface brightness data can distinguish between a Friedman‐Robertson‐Walker expanding universe and a non‐expanding universe. For surface brightness measured in AB magnitudes per angular area, all FRW models, regardless of cosmological parameters, predict that surface brightness declines with redshift as (z+1)−3, while any non‐expanding model predicts that surface brightness is constant with distance and thus with z. High‐z UV surface brightness data for galaxies from the Hubble Ultra Deep Field…

Observations contradict galaxy size and surface brightness predictions that are based on the expanding universe hypothesis

In a non-expanding universe surface brightness is independent of distance or redshift, while in an expanding universe it decreases rapidly with both. Similarly, for objects of the same luminosity,

UV surface brightness of galaxies from the local universe to z ~ 5

The Tolman test for surface brightness (SB) dimming was originally proposed as a test for the expansion of the universe. The test, which is independent of the details of the assumed cosmology, is

Magnitude-Redshift Relation for SNe Ia, Time Dilation, and Plasma Redshift

We have previously shown that the type Ia supernovae data by Riess et al. match the prediction of the magnitude-redshift relation in the plasma-redshift cosmology. In this article, we also show that


Assuming the standard cosmological model to be correct, the average linear size of the galaxies with the same luminosity is six times smaller at z = 3.2 than at z = 0; and their average angular size

Tests for the Expansion of the Universe

Almost all cosmologists accept nowadays that the redshift of the galaxies is due to the expansion of the Universe (cosmological redshift), plus some Doppler effect of peculiar motions, but can we be

Expanding or Static Universe: Emergence of a New Paradigm

The no-evolution, concordance expanding universe cosmology and no-evolution, static universe tired light model are compared against observational data on eight cosmology tests. The no-evolution tired

Pseudo-evolution of galaxies in Λ CDM cosmology

Our knowledge about galaxy evolution comes from transforming observed galaxy properties at different redshifts to comoving physical scales. This transformation depends on using a cosmological

Contracting universe and the cosmological redshift

It is shown that static time-time component in RW metric can be justi ed only if we assume that an expanding or contracting universe does not impact the physics at the smallest scales, and size of


In order to test the expansion of the universe and its geometry, we carry out an Alcock–Paczyński cosmological test, that is, an evaluation of the ratio of observed angular size to radial/redshift

Tests and Problems of the Standard Model in Cosmology

The main foundations of the standard $$\Lambda $$ΛCDM model of cosmology are that: (1) the redshifts of the galaxies are due to the expansion of the Universe plus peculiar motions; (2) the cosmic



A Tolman Surface Brightness Test for Universal Expansion and the Evolution of Elliptical Galaxies in Distant Clusters

We use the intercept of the elliptical galaxy radius-surface brightness (SB) relation at a fixed metric radius as the standard condition for the Tolman SB test of the universal expansion. We use

Plasma Redshift, Time Dilation, and Supernovas Ia

The measurements of the absolute magnitudes and redshifts of supernovas Ia show that conventional physics, which includes plasma redshift, fully explains the observed magnitude-redshift relation of

The Angular Size — Redshift Relation as a Cosmological Tool

The angular size — redshift (θ − z) relation can in principle be used to discriminate between world models because the angular size subtended by a rigid rod is quite a sensitive function of

Do Type Ia supernovae prove Λ>0?

The evidence for positive cosmological constantfrom Type Ia super- novae is reexamined. Both high redshift supernova teams are found to underestimate the effects of host galaxy extinction. The

Principles of Physical Cosmology

This book is the essential introduction to this critical area of modern physics, written by a leading pioneer who has shaped the course of the field for decades. The book provides an authoritative

Multipole vectors - A New representation of the CMB sky and evidence for statistical anisotropy or non-Gaussianity at 2 <= l <= 8

We propose a novel representation of cosmic microwave anisotropy maps, where each multipole order $\mathcal{l}$ is represented by $\mathcal{l}$ unit vectors pointing in directions on the sky and an
