THE QUASAR 0805+046 AS A HELIUM-RICH SHELL STAR

Varshni,Y.P.: 1984, J.Roy.Astron.Soc.Canada, 78, 211.

Within the framework of the plasma-laser star model of quasars (Varshni, 1975, 1977, 1979) it is proposed that 0805+046 is a helium-rich shell star. (a) The strong emission line at 4712 is identified with He I 4713 . (b) The discontinuity in the continuous energy distribution at 3420 is identified with the helium discontinuity at 3422 . (c) In the absorption-line spectrum (Jian-sheng et al., 1981), many lines have been identified. Some of the identifications are given below:
