Talk:luminosity distance

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

Weisstein's definition mentions doppler and relativistic shifts explicitly. Pages from UCLA and Ohio State don't, but most likely the shifts figure in to the luminosity component. In any case, this is idiomatic, in part because there are several notions of "luminosity" to pick from, but only one is used for luminosity distance. -dmh 13:14, 20 September 2005 (UTC)
