  • 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

    Exploring intriguing questions about where the first generations of stars were formed, book discusses how the first galaxies were assembled, whether early galaxies have low redshift counterparts and what role early galaxies played in the reionization process. more...

  • Galaxyby James Geach

    Reaktion Books 2014; US$ 35.00

    Each night, we are able to gaze up at the night sky and look at the thousands of stars that stretch to the end of our individual horizons. But the stars we see are only those that make up our own Milky Way galaxy?but one of hundreds of billions in the whole of the universe, each separated  by inconceivably huge tracts of empty space. In this... more...

  • Lessons from the Local Groupby Kenneth Freeman; Bruce Elmegreen; David Block; Matthew Woolway

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 349.00

     Our understanding of galaxy formation comes mostly from two sources: sensitive observations at high angular resolution of the high-redshift Universe, where galaxies are observed to be forming, and detailed observations of individual stars and clouds in the Local Group, where telltale remnants from its formative time remain and similar processes operate... more...

  • Galaxy Formation and Evolutionby Hyron Spinrad

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 209.00

    Discusses the evolution of galaxies, emphasising the boundaries of our knowledge about the most distant galaxies, but demonstrating how it is possible to make comparisons between nearby galaxies and the most distant current observed. This book also reviews galaxy morphology and its likely history. more...

  • Galaxies in the Universeby Linda S. Sparke; John S. III Gallagher

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 80.00

    Revised second edition for advanced undergraduate students in astronomy and astrophysics. more...

  • Galaxies and How to Observe Themby Wolfgang Steinicke; Richard Jakiel

    Springer London 2007; US$ 32.95

    This book is a unique work satisfying the need for a modern, comprehensive review of all major aspects of galaxy observation. The book combines the physical background on the nature and data of galaxies, the relevant instrumentation and viewing techniques, and finally the targets and their individual appearance in telescopes of various apertures.... more...

  • Shrouds of the Nightby David L. Block; Kenneth Freeman

    Springer New York 2009; US$ 39.95

    ??Shrouds of the night? sounds like the title for some supernatural mystery. But when you open up David Block and Kenneth Freeman's big new book you find... Well, a supernatural mystery. [?] Not another photo compilation - but a history, a celebration, and a score or more of quite luminous speculations. It?s a look far out in space, and back in time,... more...

  • Nucleosynthesis and Chemical Evolution of Galaxiesby Bernard E. J. Pagel

    Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 92.00

    A lucid introduction for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, and an authoritative overview for researchers and professional scientists. more...

  • High-Redshift Galaxiesby Immo Appenzeller

    Springer 2009; US$ 139.00

    Presents a comprehensive account of the scientific results on high-redshift galaxies. Summarizing the observational data, this book describes the observational methods which made it possible to study these very distant and extremely faint objects. It is suitable for students interested in extragalactic astronomy. more...
