Non-optical methods of astronomy

  • Black Holes: Thermodynamics, Information, and Firewallsby Robert B. Mann

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99

    This book reflects the resurgence of interest in the quantum properties of black holes, culminating most recently in controversial discussions about firewalls. On the thermodynamic side, it describes how new developments allowed the inclusion of pressure/volume terms in the first law, leading to a new understanding of black holes as chemical systems,... 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...

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

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    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...

  • Science and Spectacleby John Agar

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 175.00

    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...

  • Extreme Ultraviolet Astronomyby Roger F. Malina

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95

    The field of extreme ultraviolet astronomy will see two major satellite observatories to be launched in 1991, one by ESA (ROSAT mission), one by NASA (EUVE mission). These Proceedings discuss the potential for EUV Astronomy, results from recent missions, approved and possible future missions and new developments in EUV technology. 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...

  • 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...

  • Searching African Skiesby Sarah Wild

    Jacana Media 2012; US$ 24.99

    An ambitious scientific project is unfolding in the desert of South Africa, with a multi-decade timeline that will eventually see expansion into Western Australia?a project that is detailed and celebrated in this book on the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). The SKA will be the largest and most sensitive radio telescope, expanding the capabilities of scientific... more...
