- World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 86.00
The scope of this book is two-fold: the first part gives a fully detailed and pedagogical presentation of the Hawking effect and its physical implications, and the second discusses the backreaction problem, especially in connection with exactly solvable semiclassical models that describe analytically the black hole evaporation process. The book aims... more...

The huge amount of data obtained by surveys in all wavebands, from radio to X-rays, has allowed major progress in the understanding of Active Galactic Nuclei and of their cosmic evolution. This book contains the proceedings of a conference intended to give a broad overview of the recent results obtained by recent AGN surveys over the whole electromagnetic... more...

Efforts to uncover the explosion mechanism of core collapse supernovae and to understand all of their associated phenomena have been ongoing for nearly four decades. Despite this, our theoretical understanding of these cosmic events remains limited; two- and three-dimensional modeling of these events is in its infancy. Most of the modeling efforts... more...

This book collects the contributions presented at the conference Isolated Neutron Stars: From the Surface to the Interior, held in London in April 2006. Forty years after the discovery of radio pulsars it presents an up-to-date description of the new vision of isolated neutron stars that has emerged in recent years with the advance of multi-wavelength... more...

Starbursts are important features of early galaxy evolution. Many of the distant, high-redshift galaxies we are able to detect are in a starbursting phase, often apparently provoked by a violent gravitational interaction with another galaxy. In fact, if we did not know that major starbursts existed, these conference proceedings testify that we would... more...

Double & Multiple Stars, and How to Observe Them' is written specially for practical amateur astronomers who not only want to observe, but want to know and understand the details of exactly what they are looking at. It is a mine of information for all levels of amateur observers, from the beginner to the experienced. more...

The proceedings of the conference Supernovae 2003 (IAU colloquium 192) provides an extensive state-of-the-art survey of all theoretical and observational aspects of supernovae and gamma-ray bursts, as well as their impact on cosmology. This volume offers everyone working in this field an authoritative and comprehensive source of reference. The present... more...

Discusses the evolution of galaxies, emphasising the boundaries of our knowledge about the most distant galaxies, but demonstrating how it is possible to make comparisons between nearby galaxies and the most distant current observed. This book also reviews galaxy morphology and its likely history. more...

Planetary nebulae (PNe) are found in galaxies of all types and also between the galaxies in nearby galaxy clusters. This book contains the proceedings of a workshop held at ESO headquarters in Garching in 2004, devoted entirely to Extra-galactic Planetary Nebulae. more...
