Fitting Cosmological Models to the Radio Source Counts

  • A Corrigendum to this article was published on 30 December 1967

Abstract

Inspection of a properly formulated distribution for radio sources of local luminosity shows that the distribution is not as wide as has been thought. The distribution fits a Gaussian curve, with a standard deviation of one, to a good approximation.
