Theory of redshifts and Lyman forests of quasars

Abstract : Periodicities of redshifts of quasars found by Burbidge and Karlsson and exact superpositions of lines in quasar spectra studied by Petitjean result from addition of redshifts which transform beta or gamma frequencies of H atom into alpha frequency. Thus spectra are redshifted until an absorbed line reaches Lyman alpha frequency. Coherent Raman interactions of several light beams with atoms used as catalyst, increases entropy of beams by various frequency shifts; hot beams (light) are redshifted while cold (thermal radiation) are blueshifted. Using ordinary temporally incoherent light, spatial coherence needed to avoid a cloud of images, requires a Raman resonance frequency lower than 1GHz. Thus H atoms must be pumped to 2P state by Lyman alpha absorption which becomes impossible when an absorbed line reaches alpha frequency. Observed redshifts require only physics well known by specialists of short light pulses. It is only assumed that quasars are surrounded by low pressure, relatively cold atomic hydrogen, mainly enlightened by a single source.
