    Abstract: One of the most popular theories of measuring planetary distances in the solar system is Bode's law, but this law has some deviations when compared to the real distances. In this paper a new classification (Hazaymeh-Hawarey Classification) is presented. This classification aims to explain the inability of Bode's law to identify the two orbital dime... Show More

    Abstract: Frequency peak/linear size (ν_p-D) relation gives the strongest correlation among all the currently observable physical properties of Compact Steep Spectrum Sources (CSSs). This strong correlation suggests that the spectral turnover constitutes a characteristic signature of dense gases around the CSS sources which may be used to constrain physical ... Show More
