In this book,... more...

  • Chemical Evolution of Galaxiesby Francesca Matteucci

    Springer 2012; US$ 124.00

    The term "chemical evolution of galaxies" refers to the evolution of abundances of chemical species in galaxies, which is due to nuclear processes occurring in stars and to gas flows into and out of galaxies. This book deals with the chemical evolution of galaxies of all morphological types (ellipticals, spirals and irregulars) and stresses... more...

  • The First Galaxiesby Tommy Wiklind; Bahram Mobasher; Volker Bromm

    Springer 2012; US$ 179.00

  • Proceedings of the Galactic Center Workshop 2002by Angela Cotera; Sera Markoff; Thomas R. Geballe; Heino Falcke

    Wiley 2008; US$ 215.00

    Our knowledge of the environment of the nucleus of our galaxy has been greatly enhanced, by more extensive and sensitive observations at radio and infrared wavelengths, the advent of high resolution x-ray imaging and spectroscopy, and considerable theoretical activity to understand the nucleus and its components, and their activity. The Galactic Center... more...
