Images inside a reflecting spherical surface with possible application in astronomy

Ilic, Milos (2014) Images inside a reflecting spherical surface with possible application in astronomy. [Working Paper] (Unpublished)

Abstract

This report studies an algebraic equation whose solution gives the image system of a source of light as seen by an observer inside a reflecting spherical surface. The equation is looked at numerically using GeoGebra. Under the hypothesis that our galaxy is enveloped by a reflecting interface this becomes a possible model for many mysterious extra galactic observations.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
