# The Hubble series: convergence properties and redshift variables

@article{Cattoen2007TheHS, title={The Hubble series: convergence properties and redshift variables}, author={C'eline Cattoen and Matt Visser}, journal={Classical and Quantum Gravity}, year={2007}, volume={24}, pages={5985-5997} }

In cosmography, cosmokinetics and cosmology, it is quite common to encounter physical quantities expanded as a Taylor series in the cosmological redshift z. Perhaps the most well-known exemplar of this phenomenon is the Hubble relation between distance and redshift. However, we now have considerable high-z data available; for instance, we have supernova data at least back to redshift z ≈ 1.75. This opens up the theoretical question as to whether or not the Hubble series (or more generally any…
