  • Physics of Star Formation in Galaxiesby F. Palla; H. Zinnecker

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 104.00

    Begining with a historical introduction, "Star Formation: The Early History", this text then presents two long articles on "Pre-Main-Sequence Evolution of Stars and Young Clusters" and "Observations of Young Stellar Objects". more...

  • From Dust To Starsby Norbert Schulz

    Springer 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, with... more...

  • Stargazerby Fred Watson

    Allen & Unwin 2007; US$ 22.68

    An anecdotal history of the development of the optical telescope and the people involved, culminating in the author's predictions for future developments. more...

  • Heating Versus Cooling in Galaxies and Clusters of Galaxiesby Gabriel W. Pratt; Peter Schucker; Hans Bohringer; Alexis A. Finoguenov

    Springer 2007; US$ 139.00

    The present volume is the record of a recent topical conference on the interplay between heating and cooling processes in galaxies and clusters of galaxies. The volume documents recent progress in our understanding of the dense central regions of these objects. Chapters detail recent results from multiwavelength observations and advances in numerical... more...

  • Short-period Binary Starsby Eugene F. Milone; Denis A. Leahy; David W. Hobill

    Springer 2008; US$ 209.00

    Short-period binaries run the gamut from widely separated stars to black-hole pairs; in between are systems that include neutron stars and white dwarfs, and partially evolved systems such as tidally distorted and over-contact systems. These objects represent stages of evolution of binary stars, and their degrees of separation provide critical clues... more...

  • Mapping the Galaxy and Nearby Galaxiesby Keiichi Wada; Francoise Combes

    Springer 2007; US$ 299.00

    This is a proceedings book of the symposium "Mapping the Galaxy and nearby Galaxies" held in Ishigaki Island, Okinawa, Japan, on June 25-30, 2006. The symposium focused on mapping the interstellar media and other components in galactic disks, bulges, halos, and central regions of galaxies. Thanks to recent progress in observations using radio... more...

  • Setting-up a Small Observatoryby David Arditti

    Springer 2007; US$ 29.95

    Provides information about smaller-scale observatories, and how to set one up. This book covers the details of design, siting and construction - once a basic type has been decided upon. It also considers the aesthetics of amateur observatories - fitting them in with family and neighbors, and disguising them as common garden buildings if necessary. more...

  • First Light in the Universeby Abraham Loeb; Andrea Ferrara; Richard S. Ellis

    Springer 2007; US$ 149.00

    Contains the worked out lectures given at the 36th Saas-Fee Advanced Course "First Light in the Universe" by three scientists in the field: Abraham Loeb, Andrea Ferrara, and Richard Ellis. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the physics of galaxies, stars, the interstellar and intergalactic medium in the early Universe. more...

  • Multiple Stars Across the H-R Diagramby Swetlana Hubrig; Monika Petr-Gotzens; Andrei Tokovinin

    Springer 2007; US$ 109.00

    The ESO workshop "Multiple Stars across the H-R Diagram" was held in Garching on July 12-15, 2005. The topics included observations of multiple stars from ground and space, dynamical and stellar evolution in multiple systems, effects of the environment on multiplicity, formation and early evolution of multiple stars, and special components... more...

  • Cores to Clustersby P. Caselli; M.S.N. Kumar; M. Tafalla

    Springer 2008; US$ 289.00

    Contains proceedings of the "Cores to Clusters" workshop held at Centro de Astrofisica da Universidade do Porto during 7-9 October, 2004 to discuss future issues in star formation physics in the light of the Next Generation Telescopes. more...
