Instead, much less sharp, statistical correlations between the characteristics of some distant galaxy and its probable luminosity have to be employed; and there is, of course, an increase in uncertainty with distance. The centres of galaxies are often places of violent activity, where huge eruptions take place, rapid fiux variations are observed (Fig. 14), and generally a large amount of energy is radiated, from radio waves to X-rays. Some of these active galactic nuclei are so far away that the surrounding normal galaxy can no longer be seen, and they appear quasi-stellar (Fig.
For the energy (DA + Do - 1) ::; 0 the solutions correspond to expansion from a singularity (Fig. 15). V(x) has a maximum at X m = (D o /2D A)1/3, and for DA +D o > 1 there is a critical value D Ac such that dx/dT = 0 at x m . D Ac can be found as the solution of the equation 27 3 2 (DAc + Do - 1) = 4DoDAc. 34) For DA < D Ac and D Ac + Do - 1 > 0 we still find expansion forever, starting from an initial singularity. e. D Ac + Do - 1 > 0) there is a static solution, the "Einst ein universe" , with a constant radius: In Fig.
