S. Chandrasekhar, popularly known as Chandra, was one of the foremost scientists of the 20th century. The year 2010 marks the birth centenary of Chandra. His unique style of research, inward bound, seeking a personal perspective to master a particular field, and then pass on to another was so unique that it will draw considerable interest and attention... more...

The Amateur Astronomer's Guide to the Deep-sky Catalogs provides a compilation of the historical and modern astronomical deep-sky catalogs. It provides a comparison, discusses their origins, explains how to interpret the data they contain, and outlines how to create suitable 'custom' catalogs. more...

For a quantitative understanding of the physics of the universe - from the solar system through the milky way to clusters of galaxies all the way to cosmology - these edited lecture notes are perhaps among the most concise and also among the most critical ones: Astrophysics has not yet stood the redundancy test of laboratory physics, hence should... more...

Astrophysics is a subject that is often - with some justification - regarded as extremely difficult, requiring at least degree-level mathematics as a prerequisite to its understanding. Consequently, many amateur astronomers just don't bother, and miss out on the fascinating fundamentals of the subject, and often on an understanding of exactly what... more...

E A Milne was one of the giants of 20th century astrophysics and cosmology. His bold ideas, underpinned by his Christianity, sparked controversy — he believed two time scales operate in the universe.Struggling against poverty, Milne won five scholarships to Cambridge, but he never finished his degree. In World War I he was invited to develop... more...

Es gibt kaum ein metaphysisches Problem, das nicht unter Berufung auf die Quantenmechanik gelöst wurde ? angeblich jedenfalls. Dies ist auf den ersten Blick überraschend, denn bei der Quantenmechanik handelt es sich um eine physikalische Theorie. Das Ziel der Quanten-Metaphysik besteht aber in der Regel darin, weltanschauliche Positionen empirisch... more...

Updated and expanded, this book describes the dynamic properties of magnetically trapped particles in planetary radiation belts and plasmas and explains physical processes from a theoretical point of view. Includes examples and practical recommendations. more...

The existence of materials with very high specific energies greatly exceeding the local virial temperature is best represented by cosmic rays, whose origin has long been a mystery. Recent astrophysical observations in X-ray, gamma-ray, neutrino, and high energy cosmic ray experiments, in conjunction with theoretical studies, have revealed various new... more...
