PROPERTIES AND OBSERVATIONS

New developments in relativistic dynamics in an open, expanding, hyperbolic
universe lead to the conclusion that the light speed $c$ varies inversely
with the age and scale length $R(t)$ of the universe, so that $c(t)R(t)=S$
is a constant. The fine structure constant and influential dimensionless
ratios like $h\nu /kT$ remain invariant. Consequences for atomic, molecular
and collision properties and possibilities for their measurement will be
examined.
