  • Picturing the Cosmosby Elizabeth A. Kessler

    University of Minnesota Press 2012; US$ 60.00

    The vivid, dramatic images of distant stars and galaxies taken by the Hubble Space Telescope have come to define how we visualize the cosmos. In their immediacy and vibrancy, photographs from the Hubble show what future generations of space travelers might see should they venture beyond our solar system. But their brilliant hues and precise details... 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...

  • Relativistic Jets from Active Galactic Nucleiby Markus Boettcher; Daniel E. Harris; Henric Krawczynski

    Wiley 2012; US$ 150.00

    Written by a carefully selected consortium of researchers working in the field, this book fills the gap for an up-to-date summary of the observational and theoretical status. As such, this monograph includes all used wavelengths, from radio to gamma, the FERMI telescope, a history and theory refresher, and jets from gamma ray bursts. For astronomers,... 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...
