  • The Role of VLBI in Astrophysics, Astrometry and Geodesyby Andrzej Kus

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 139.00

    Proceedings of the NATO Advanced Study Institute, Bologna, Italy, September 17-29, 2001 more...

  • Very High Energy Cosmic Gamma Radiationby Michael D Smith

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 252.00

    Gamma ray astronomy, the branch of high energy astrophysics that studies the sky in energetic ?-ray photons, is destined to play a crucial role in the exploration of nonthermal phenomena in the Universe in their most extreme and violent forms. The great potential of this discipline offers impressive coverage of many ?hot topics? of modern astrophysics... more...

  • Compact Stellar X-ray Sourcesby Walter Lewin; Michiel van der Klis

    Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 72.00

    A reference work on astrophysical compact objects that emit X-rays, for graduate students and researchers. more...

  • Very High Energy Gamma-Ray Astronomyby T.C. Weekes

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 231.00

    High energy gamma-ray photons are the prime probes of the relativistic or high-energy universe, populated by black holes, neutron stars, supernovae, quasars, and matter-antimatter annihilations. Through studying the gamma-ray sky, astrophysicists are able to better understand the formation and behavior of these exotic and energetic bodies. Very High... more...

  • The Biggest Bangsby Jonathan Katz

    Oxford University Press 2002; US$ 44.99

    For over 25 years, gamma-ray bursts were the outstanding mystery in astronomy. No one knew where they were or how they worked. 'The Biggest Bangs' tells how the mystery was unravelled, from the discovery of gamma-ray bursts by a Cold War satellite system monitoring the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty to the localization of bursts in distant galaxies. more...

  • The Square Kilometre Array: An Engineering Perspectiveby Peter J. Hall

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 259.00

    The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Project is a global project to design and c- struct a revolutionary new radio telescope with of order 1 million square meters of collecting area in the wavelength range from3mto1cm.It will have two - ders of magnitude greater sensitivity than current telescopes and an unprecedented large instantaneous ?eld-of-view.... more...

  • Recollections of "Tucson Operations"by Mark Gordon

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 209.00

    This book is a personal account of the evolution of millimeter-wave astronomy at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. It begins with the construction of the hugely successful, but flawed, 36 ft radio telescope on Kitt Peak, Arizona, and continues through the funding of its ultimate successor, the Atacama Large Millimeter-wave Array (ALMA), being... more...

  • The Universe in X-Raysby Joachim E Trümper

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 159.00

    In the last 45 years, X-ray astronomy has become an integral part of modern astrophysics and cosmology. There is a wide range of astrophysical objects and phenomena, where X-rays provide crucial diagnostics. In particular they are well suited to study hot plasmas and matter under extreme physical conditions in compact objects. This book summarizes... more...

  • Foundations of High-Energy Astrophysicsby Mario Vietri

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 60.00

    Written by one of today?s most highly respected astrophysicists, Foundations of High-Energy Astrophysics is an introduction to the mathematical and physical techniques used in the study of high-energy astrophysics. Here, Mario Vietri approaches the basics of high-energy astrophysics with an emphasis on underlying physical processes as opposed... more...
