Non-optical methods of astronomy

  • 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...

  • Astrophysics at Very High Energiesby Felix Aharonian; Lars Bergström; Charles Dermer

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 99.00

    This book reviews recent progress in gamma-ray astrophysics and multi-messenger astronomy. Includes research on the sources of GeV and TeV photons gleaned from measurements made by new instrumentats, new work on detection of dark matter and more. more...

  • Getting Started in Radio Astronomyby Steven Arnold

    Springer New York 2013; US$ 34.99

    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...

  • Extreme Ultraviolet Astronomyby Martin A. Barstow; Jay B. Holberg

    Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 96.00

    Describes the development of astronomy in the Extreme Ultraviolet wavelength range. more...

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

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 33.95

    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...

  • A Panchromatic View of Galaxiesby Alessandro Boselli

    Wiley 2012; US$ 145.00

    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...

  • Measuring the Angular Momentum of Supermassive Black Holesby Laura Brenneman

    Springer New York 2013; US$ 49.99

    Measuring the spin distribution of supermassive black holes is of critical importance for understanding how these black holes and their host galaxies form and evolve over time, yet this type of study is only in its infancy.  This brief describes how astronomers measure spin in supermassive black holes using X-ray spectroscopy.   It also reviews the... more...

  • ISO Science Legacyby Catherine Cesarsky; Alberto Salama

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 219.00

    Stars are born and die in clouds of gas and dust, opaque to most types of radiation, but transparent in the infrared. Requiring complex detectors, space missions and cooled telescopes, infrared astronomy is the last branch of this discipline to come of age. After a very successful sky survey performed in the eighties by the IRAS satellite, the Infrared... more...

  • Stellar Polarimetryby David Clarke

    Wiley 2009; US$ 170.00

    Written by an experienced teacher and author, this must-have source for work with polarimetric equipment and polarimetry in astronomy conveys the knowledge of the technology and techniques needed to measure and interpret polarizations. As such, this monograph offers a brief introduction and refresher, while also covering in detail statistics and data... more...

  • Infrared Astronomy ? Seeing the Heatby David L. Clements

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 49.95

    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...
