(absence of) temporal aberration: the most precise data?

  1. Aug 15, 2009 #1
    Hello,

    Since the publication of the de Sitter paper in 1913 (1), I would imagine that a huge amount of data have been collected from the observation of binary stars. For sure, detailled observation and modern data analysis have rule out the Ritz hypothesis with a large certainty.

    Would you know about the best data available and about the bound that has been derived from these data on the c constancy with respect to the speed of the emitter?
    I would also be interrested by a comparison of observations with the hypothetical observation that would result from the Ritz hypothesis.

    With my thanks and best regards,

    Michel
