  • The Galaxies of the Local Groupby Sidney Bergh

    Cambridge University Press 2000; US$ 62.00

    A comprehensive summary of what is known about the Local Group, and what this knowledge tells us about the rest of the Universe. more...

  • The Origin Of Starsby Michael D. Smith

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 128.00

    Where do stars come from and how do they form? These are profound questions which link the nature of our Universe to the roots of mankind. Yet, until a recent revolution in understanding, the proposed answers have been raw speculation. Now, accompanying penetrating observations, a new picture has come into prominence. more...

  • Zdenek Kopal's Binary Star Legacyby Horst Drechsel; Miloslav Zejda

    Springer 2005; US$ 259.00

    An international conference entitled "Zdenek Kopal's Binary Star Legacy" was held on the occasion of the late Professor Kopal's 90th birthday in his home town of Litomy?l/Czech Republic and dedicated to the memory of one of the leading astronomers of the 20th century. Professor Kopal, who devoted 60 years of his scientific life to the exploration of... more...

  • How does the Galaxy Work?by Emilio J. Alfaro

    Springer 2004; US$ 359.00

    This volume presents a multi-disciplinary approach to the physical mechanisms which structure the shape, evolution and fate of the Galaxy. It contains 4 panel sessions (the recording transcripts of the galactic 'tertulias'), an introductory historical overview on the Galaxy research, 17 reviews, and the proceedings of more than 50 oral and poster contributions. ... more...

  • White Dwarfsby Edward M. Sion; Stéphane Vennes; Harry L. Shipman

    Springer 2006; US$ 209.00

    The emphasis on white dwarf stars and cosmology arise from the advances in cosmological and galactic structure research in which these stars play a prominent role. Aimed at graduate students and scientific professionals, this book includes reviews focusing on four areas: white dwarf supernovae, cosmology, accretion physics and galactic structure. more...

  • Joint Evolution of Black Holes and Galaxiesby M. Colpi; V. Gorini; F. Haardt; U. Moschella

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 210.00

    Black holes are among the most mysterious objects that the human mind has been capable of imagining. As pure mathematical constructions, they are tools for exploiting the fundamental laws of physics. As astronomical sources, they are part of our cosmic landscape, warping space-time, coupled to the large-scale properties and life cycle of their host... more...

  • Statistics of the Galaxy Distributionby Vicent J. Martinez; Enn Saar

    Taylor and Francis 2001; US$ 164.95

    Over the last decade, statisticians have developed new statistical tools in the field of spatial point processes. At the same time, observational efforts have yielded a huge amount of new cosmological data to analyze. Although the main tools in astronomy for comparing theoretical results with observation are statistical, in recent years, cosmologists... more...

  • Evolutionary Processes in Binary and Multiple Starsby Peter Eggleton

    Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 58.00

    This 2006 volume discusses the statistics of binary stars; the evolution of single stars; and interaction between multiple stars. more...

  • Cosmic Explosions in Three Dimensionsby Peter Höflich; Pawan Kumar; J. Craig Wheeler

    Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 68.00

  • Modeling Black Hole Evaporationby Alessandro Fabbri

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 156.00

    The scope of this book is two-fold: the first part gives a fully detailed and pedagogical presentation of the Hawking effect and its physical implications, and the second discusses the backreaction problem, especially in connection with exactly solvable semiclassical models that describe analytically the black hole evaporation process. The book aims... more...
