Astrophysical Deductions from the Quasi Steadystate Cosmology
Abstract
The numerical consequences of the theory developed in two previous papers are examined in more detail. In particular, it is shown that the radio source count data can be explained to high accuracy, including the steeperthanEuclidean slope of the count distribution at its highflux end. By specifying the parameters of the theory, we obtain reasonable values for the Hubble constant and the ages of the globular clusters, a maximum redshift for any object observed from the present oscillatory cycle of the Universe, a minimum average density of ∼2 × 10^{27} g cm^{3} for clusters of galaxies, and a temperature close to 2.7 K for the microwave background. The theory predicts a nearblackbody spectrum for the microwave background, and also explains the observed anisotropy.
