New cosmological model Shen, Po-Yu
The present situation in cosmology is discussed. We try to explain the observed distribution of quasars in terms of an inhomogeneous model universe that consists of inner and outer Friedmann zones separated by a transition zone. The number - red-shift relation is derived, and numerical calculations are performed on the assumption that the transition zone is negligible. When the results are compared with observation, it is found that the dearth of quasars with red-shifts greater than 2 is easily explained, but that one cannot account for their anisotropic distribution. Modifications of the model are suggested.
