Numerically this idea is similar to Hubble's law [20].
u], where it then becomes non-linear and produces a result that mimics acceleration of the viewed object, if one still believes that Hubble's Law is linear.
The linear relationship for smaller d explains Hubble's Law without requiring an expansion of the Universe or our own Hubble sphere.
It will be shown that Hubble's Law need not be related to the Doppler redshifts of the light from receding Galaxies (section 2).
Please note that Hubble's Law need not be related to the Doppler redshifts.
Thus, whether Hubble's Law represents the effects of an expanding universe is a matter of the interpretation of the local distance.
This analysis demonstrates that the Hubble's Law is not necessarily related to the Doppler redshifts.
