- Springer 2006; US$ 149.99
The emphasis on white dwarf stars and cosmology arise from the advances in cosmological and galactic structure research in which these stars play a prominent role. Aimed at graduate students and scientific professionals, this book includes reviews focusing on four areas: white dwarf supernovae, cosmology, accretion physics and galactic structure. more...
- Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 64.00
This volume highlights the burgeoning era of routine supernova polarimetry and the new insights into core collapse and thermonuclear explosions. With chapters by leading scientists, the book summarises the status of a rapidly developing new perspective on stellar explosions, and is a valuable resource for graduate students and research scientists. more...

Reviewing the fundamental instrumental techniques and current observational results, this book unveils the mysteries of the physical processes in the central parsec of our Milky Way: the super-massive black hole embedded in a central stellar cluster as well as the gas and dust in the circumnuclear region. The observations described cover the entire... more...

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...

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...
- Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 249.99
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...

This book is an introduction to pulsars, a key area in high energy astrophysics with continuing potential for fundamental discoveries. Throughout the book runs the unifying thread of the evolutionary link between rotation-powered pulsars and accretion-powered pulsars a milestone of modern astrophysics. Early textbooks on pulsars dealt almost... more...
- Springer 2006; US$ 31.99
A funny rendition of the story of gravitation theory from the early historic origins to the developments in astrophysics, focusing on Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity and black-hole physics. more...
