According to the cosmological principle, an observer fixed in the co-moving co-ordinate system of the expanding Universe should find the Universe to be isotropic, without any preferred directions. To such an observer the redshift distribution due to Hubble expansion of the Universe should also appear similar in all directions. However a peculiar motion of such an observer could introduce a dipole anisotropy in the observed redshift distribution; in reverse an observed dipole anisotropy in the…

Our Peculiar Motion Inferred from Number Counts of Mid Infra Red AGNs and the Discordance Seen with the Cosmological Principle

According to the Cosmological Principle, the Universe is isotropic and no preferred direction would be seen by an observer that might be stationary with respect to the expanding cosmic fluid.
