Canuto, V., and L. Owen, 1978: On the origin of the absorption spectra of quasi-stellar and BL Lacertae objects. Astrophys. J., 225, 79-82, doi:10.1086/156469.

Following a paper by Burbidge et al. (1977), the authors reexamine the possibility multiple absorption spectra of QSOs are due to gas in the disks, coronae, or halos of intervening galaxies. Using the same catalog and parameters as the previous authors but assuming Λ — Λc instead of Λ = 0 (as they did), we found that the discrepancy of several orders of magnitude between the predicted and observed multiplicities reported by BORS is drastically reduced and that the observed multiplicity distribution is theoretically obtainable. The intervening-galaxy hypothesis cannot be rejected on the basis of this test.
