I've derived a velocity/redshift/distance law,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]

v = c \ln(1 + z) = H_0 d_0

[/tex]

where [itex]v[/itex] is the recession velocity, [itex]c[/itex] is the speed of light, [itex]z[/itex] is the cosmological redshift, [itex]H_0[/itex] is the present Hubble constant, and [itex]d_0[/itex] is the present distance of the source.

I would like to relate my law to the data, hopefully to show that the

expansion rate of the universe is not accelerating, thus eliminating the

need to invoke dark energy. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

For the derivation of this law and more, please click on the following link
