  • What Are Gamma-Ray Bursts?by Joshua S. Bloom

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 35.00 US$ 28.00

    Gamma-ray bursts are the brightest--and, until recently, among the least understood--cosmic events in the universe. Discovered by chance during the cold war, these evanescent high-energy explosions confounded astronomers for decades. But a rapid series of startling breakthroughs beginning in 1997 revealed that the majority of gamma-ray bursts are... more...

  • Parkes: Thirty Years of Radio Astronomyby DE Goddard; DK Milne

    CSIRO Publishing 1994; US$ 39.95

  • A Panchromatic View of Galaxiesby Alessandro Boselli

    Wiley 2012; US$ 150.00 US$ 130.00

    Describing how to investigate all kinds of galaxies through a multifrequency analysis, this text is divided into three different sections. The first describes the data currently available at different frequencies, from X-rays to UV, optical, infrared and radio millimetric and centimetric, while explaining their physical meaning. In the second section,... more...

  • The Square Kilometre Array: Paving the way for the new 21st century radio astronomy paradigmby Domingos Barbosa; Sonia Anton; Leonid Gurvits; Dalmiro Maia

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 223.52

    : The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) will provide more than one order of magnitude improvement in sensitivity compared with any existing radio telescope over a wavelength range of several hundred to one, from decametric to microwave wavelengths. It will revolutionize the study of the most abundant element in the Universe, hydrogen, from the epoch of... more...

  • Getting Started in Radio Astronomyby Steven Arnold

    Springer New York 2013; US$ 33.69

    This book contains everything the newcomer needs to get started in radio astronomy. It contains four easy-to-build astronomy projects for readers who have no prior experience in radio astronomy and electronics. more...

  • Science and Spectacleby John Agar

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    Science and Spectacle relates the construction of the telescope to the politics and culture of post-war Britain. From radar and atomic weapons, to the Festival of Britain and, later, Harold Wilson's rhetoric of scientific revolution, science formed a cultural resource from which post-war careers and a national identity could be built. The Jodrell... more...

  • Infrared Astronomy ? Seeing the Heatby David L. Clements

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 50.95

    Uncover the Secrets of the Universe Hidden at Wavelengths beyond Our Optical Gaze William Herschel?s discovery of infrared light in 1800 led to the development of astronomy at wavelengths other than the optical. Infrared Astronomy ? Seeing the Heat: from William Herschel to the Herschel Space Observatory explores the work in astronomy that... more...

  • Searching for the Long-Duration Gamma-Ray Burst Progenitorby Robert Allan Mesler III

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 97.71

    Nominated as an outstanding thesis by the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of New Mexico, this thesis seeks to identify the gamma-ray burst (GRB) progenitor. GRBs are extragalactic explosions that briefly outshine entire galaxies, but the mechanism that can release that much energy over a < 100 second burst is still a mystery.... more...

  • Radio Emission of the Sun and Planetsby V. V. Zheleznyakov; J. S. Hey

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95

    International Series of Monographs in Natural Philosophy, Volume 25: Radio Emission of the Sun and Planets presents the origin of the radio emission of the planets.
