The distribution of galaxies in the pencil-beam surveys of Broadhurstet al. which proved periodical across 8–10 consecutive steps in a flat dust model withq0=0.5 is found to reveal extended periodicity up to 16–17 phase-coherent steps, covering the total sample, in a flat, moderately inflationary model withq0=−0.5 (vacuum/dust ratio 2/1). In the latter model the vacuum component helps to reach the critical density and lengthens the expansion time-scale. It is shown that the explanation of the… Expand
Once more on quasar periodicities
In an earlier paper Arp, Bi, Chu and Zhu investigated various quasar samples and recognized a periodicity of remarkable degree in them. Their conclusion was that the existence of such a periodicityExpand
Cosmological parameters and redshift periodicity
This work is the continuation of the search for such a cosmological model using which the observed redshift distribution of galaxies in the sample of Broadhurstet al. (1990) turns out to be maximallyExpand
G. Pa\'al and the cosmological revolution
Gyorgy Paal, the Hungarian cosmologist died in 1992. This article was published twenty-five years later in the Hungarian Astronomical Association (HAA, MCSE in Hungarian) 2017 yearbook for hisExpand
Some Alternative Possibilities in Cosmology
The observations of: Paal (1992), Perlmutter(1999) and Riess (1998) led to the possibility of accelerated expansion of the universe and the ‘dark energy’, but after fifteen years of search no traceExpand
New Interpretation of the Cosmological Red Shift: Which Can do Away with the Dark Energy
The currently popular „Big Bang Theory‟ is based on „Doppler Shift Interpretation‟ of the „cosmological-red-shift‟. But it is shown here that the value of Hubble-constant matches so perfectly withExpand
A curious relation between the flat cosmological model and the elliptic integral of the first kind
Context. The dependence of the luminosity distance on the redshift has a key importance in the cosmology. This dependence can well be given by standard functions for the zero cosmological constant.Expand
General Relativity and Cosmology: Unsolved Questions and Future Directions
For the last 100 years, General Relativity (GR) has taken over the gravitational theory mantle held by Newtonian Gravity for the previous 200 years. This article reviews the status of GR in terms ofExpand
Seven Possible Alternative Interpretations of the ‘cosmological Red Shift’ Which Can do Away with the Dark Energy

Can the Big Bang be So Precise
The currently popular ‘Big Bang Theory’ is based on ‘Doppler Shift Interpretation’ of the ‘cosmological-red-shift’. But it is shown here that the value of Hubble-constant matches so perfectly withExpand
A Ten-Fold Improvement to the Limit of the Electron Electric Dipole Moment
The wonderfully successful Standard Model is incomplete in that it fails to explain how a matter universe survived annihilation with antimatter following the big bang. Extensions to the StandardExpand


A Slice of the Universe
A preliminary discussion is presented of recent results obtained as part of the extension of the Center of Astrophysics redshift survey. Several features of the results are striking. The distributionExpand
Test for the cosmological constant with the number count of faint galaxies
Cosmological models are tested against the recent observations of the number count of faint galaxies by Tyson (1984) and of the redshift distribution of moderately faint galaxies by Broadhurst et al.Expand
The photometric properties of brightest cluster galaxies. I - Absolute magnitudes in 116 nearby Abell clusters
Two-color aperture photometry of the brightest galaxies in a complete sample of nearby Abell clusters is presented. The results are used to anchor the bright end of the Hubble diagram; essentiallyExpand
Large-scale distribution of galaxies at the Galactic poles
GALAXIES, mapped in two or three dimensions, are not distributed randomly but are clustered on small scales (<5 h−1 Mpc, where h ≈ 0.5–1 is Hubble's constant in units of 100 km s−1Mpc−1), for reasonsExpand
Is the periodicity in the distribution of quasar redshifts evidence for the universe being multiply-connected ?
Abstract If the cosmological space is a topolegically compactified manifold, e.g. a three-dimensional torus, then the periodicity in the distribution of quasar redshifts can be explained. The presentExpand
Morphological segregation in the Pisces-Perseus supercluster
Evidence for continuous morphological segregation among galaxies along the entire Hubble sequence is sought for the wide range of galactic densities represented by the Pisces-Perseus supercluster.Expand
The Spatial correlation function of RICH clusters of galaxies
A series of objective statistical estimators is applied to directly study the three-dimensional distribution of rich clusters, using a recently completed redshift sample of 104 Abell clusters out toExpand
The Distribution of rich clusters of galaxies
A catalogue is prepared of 2712 rich clusters of galaxies found on the National Geographic Society--Palomar Observatory Sky Survey. From the catalogue, 1682 clusters are selected which meet specificExpand
Do wormholes fix the constants of nature
Abstract This paper examines the claim that the wormhole effects that cause the cosmological constant to be zero, also fix the values of all the other effective coupling constants. It is shown thatExpand
