The problem of explaining the redshifts in the spectra of quasi-stellar objects is considered by using first-order quantum perturbation theory to examine classes of perturbing Hamiltonians to determine if they could cause a redshift in the spectrum of hydrogen. A method is developed for deriving necessary conditions that a perturbation must satisfy to yield a redshift and conclusions are given for several types of perturbations. Modified author abstract
