Einstein Equivalence Principle Any small patch of GR reduces to SR Albert Einstein German General Theory of Relativity (1915) x t x t General Curved SpaceMinkowski Space x’ t’ For x ’ constant “Proper time” For t’’ constant Proper distance x’’ t’’ ?

What was the distance to that event? Photons Us t t now Robertson-Walker Coordinates Past Event Coordinate Distance Co-Moving Distance A B Well-defined… but is it meaningful? E NB: Distance along photon line Galaxies at rest in the Hubble flow

5
Three definitions of distance Co-Moving/ Coordinate AngularLuminosity Photons t Emitted a(t0)a(t0) Observed Robertson-Walker Coordinates h d Angular Euclidean: h d Define: d Angular h/ Euclidean: F I/4 d 2 Define: d Lum 2 I/4 F t0t0 d Luminosity Intensity I Flux F

7
Astronomical Magnitudes Rule 1: Apparent Magnitude m ~ log(Flux Observed a.k.a. Brightness ) Rule 2: More positive Dimmer Rule 3: Change 5 magnitudes 100 change in brightness Rule 4: Absolute Magnitude M = Apparent Magnitude if the source were at a standard distance (10 parsec = 32.6 light-year)
