Gordon, Kurtiss J.
American Journal of Physics, v48 n7 p514-17 Jul 1980
Provides information on the calculation of the redshift to blueshift ratio introduced by the transverse Doppler effect at relativistic speeds. Indicates that this shift should be mentioned in discussions of whether quasars are "local" rather than "cosmological" objects. (GS)
