In science:

The placement of these QSOs on the LIR/L′ CO − LIR plane may be due to significant contributions to dust heated by the QSO in their host galaxies, due to dust heated by massive stars formed with high efficiency (i.e., per unit molecular gas mass) relative to most infrared luminous galaxies, or a combination of both.
Molecular Gas in Infrared-Excess, Optically-Selected QSOs and the Connection with Infrared Luminous Galaxies
This is because QSOs contribute significantly to the heating of dust in their host galaxies, and/or because the dust is heated by massive stars formed with high efficiency (i.e., per unit molecular gas mass) relative to most infrared luminous galaxies.
Molecular Gas in Infrared-Excess, Optically-Selected QSOs and the Connection with Infrared Luminous Galaxies
We now know that starburst-driven winds are common in galaxies with high star formation rates per unit area, both locally (nearby starbursts, luminous and ultraluminous infrared galaxies) and at high redshifts (e.g., Lyman break galaxies).
Galactic Winds: Near and Far
The mass density of the Universe Ω is measured in units of the critical density ρcrit, and the luminous matter (stars, dust, and gas) contribute Ω between roughly 0.005 and 0.007.
The Search for the Dark Matter: WIMPs and MACHOs
M is the matter density (both luminous and dark), ΩΛ is the dark energy density respectively in units of critical density of the universe and c,H are the velocity of light in vacuum and Hubble constant respectively.
