- Some of this material was submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in physics at Cornell University in 1959.
The rate of reception of information in a particular channel is defined as usual by C = W log (1 + b/N), where W is the band-width in which the signal power is b and the noise power N. W and b are expressed as functions of the Doppler ratio Z of the particular cosmological source under observation and are model-dependent. The steady-state model is chosen to illustrate this in detail, including a set of curves of C(Z) which show, for instance, that C(Z)?Z?5 for large Z. Results are given for other models and are discussed in relation to their visual horizons, if any.
