In order to compute the luminosity distance we use the redshift adjusted distance modulus provided in [2] which is as follows:
The standard candle method is used when the luminosity of a class of objects, such as Cepheid Variables, is well understood.
Under the Agreement, Enthusiast and Luminosity will launch a digital advertising campaign to complement foodora Canada's overall advertising strategy.
Mass Luminosity, a client of Wheelhouse, manages large social media channels and is the parent company of Texas-based social media network GTribe.
The Luminosity mobile learning Apps for iOS and Android devices, are enabling the Marine Learning Alliance to deliver a wide variety of learning and support materials to their students.
"We can now point to a temperature (2100 K), radius (8.7% that of our Sun), and luminosity (1/8,000th of the Sun) and say, 'The main sequence ends there,'" says coauthor Todd Henry (Georgia State University).
This fact reduces the luminosity of distant astronomical objects.
By facilitating research at both companies, new developments in LED technology are anticipated, including an acceleration of research to improve the luminosity of LEDs.
Light and projected shadows filtered through, and, depending on the point from which one viewed it, the curtain acquired greater or lesser depth and luminosity. The "drawings" on the two sheets were perfectly superimposed in some places, while in others the patterns were displaced and layered.
Boss of the Carnegie Institution of Washington (D.C.) says the low mass and luminosity inferred from the Spitzer observations are "quite consistent" with current ideas about the birth of stars.
Its luminosity is further enhanced by reflective balustrades and a lamellar wall on the south side of the atrium: the vertical lamellae are moved to change the wall's reflectivity according to the angle of the sun and the nature of the sky.
Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas (SMA) has announced two LED product lines that incorporate advancements in package sizes, luminosity and color reproducibility.
