  • Physics of Star Formation in Galaxiesby F. Palla; A. Maeder; G. Herbig; G. Meynet; H. Zinnecker

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 169.00

    The book begins with a historical introduction, "Star Formation: The Early History", that presents new material of interest for students and historians of science. This is followed by two long articles on "Pre-Main-Sequence Evolution of Stars and Young Clusters" and "Observations of Young Stellar Objects". These articles on the fascinating problem... more...

  • Active Galactic Nucleiby R.D. Blandford; T.J.-L. Courvoisier; M. Mayor; H. Netzer; L. Woltjer

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 49.99

    The Swiss Society for Astrophysics and Astronomy organizes each year in the late winter or early spring an advanced course. The format of the school is always iden­ tical: three leading lecturers are invited to cover the subject in nine or ten lectures each and to deliver a written version of their lecture notes. Lectures are held in the morning and... more...

  • Interacting Binariesby S.N. Shore; H. Nussbaumer; Mario Livio; Astrid Orr; E.P.J.van den Heuvel

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 109.00

    Observational and Theoretical Issues of Interacting Binaries was the topic of the 22nd Advanced Course of the Swiss Society for Astrophysics and Astronomy. It was the first time that binary systems were the center of attention of our course. The established concept and organisation of the Advanced Course has been retained: three scientists, all acknowledged... more...

  • Stellar Remnantsby S.D. Kawaler; Georges Meynet; I. Novikov; Daniel Schaerer; G. Srinivasan

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 149.00

    Three eminent scientists, each well known for the clarity of their writing, present for students and researchers what is known about the internal structure, origin and evolution of White Dwarfs, Neutron Stars and Black Holes, all objects at the final stage of stellar evolution. They cover fascinating topics such as pulsation of white dwarfs, millisecond... more...

  • Rotation And Accretion Powered Pulsarsby Pranab Ghosh

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 222.00

    This book is an introduction to pulsars, a key area in high energy astrophysics with continuing potential for fundamental discoveries. Throughout the book runs the unifying thread of the evolutionary link between rotation-powered pulsars and accretion-powered pulsars — a milestone of modern astrophysics. Early textbooks on pulsars dealt almost... more...

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

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 80.00 US$ 65.60

  • Nebulae and How to Observe Themby Steven Coe

    Springer London 2007; US$ 32.95

    Nebulae are the places where the stars are born. For amateur astronomers, the many different kinds of nebulae vary from "easy" targets that can be seen with modest equipment under mediocre skies, to more obscure "challenging" objects that require experienced observers, more powerful telescopes and excellent observation conditions. The concept of... more...

  • From Dust To Starsby Norbert S. Schulz

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 149.00

    Studies of stellar formation in galaxies have a profound impact on our understanding of the present and the early universe. The book describes complex physical processes involved in the creation of stars and during their young lives. It illustrates how these processes reveal themselves from radio wavelengths to high energy X-rays and gamma -rays,... more...
