  • Eta Carinae and the Supernova Impostorsby Kris Davidson; Roberta M. Humphreys

    Springer New York 2012; US$ 159.84

    In 1965 Fritz Zwicky proposed a class of supernovae that he called "Type V", described as "excessively faint at maximum". There were only two members, SN1961v and Eta Carinae. We now know that Eta Carinae was not a true supernova, but if it were observed today in a distant galaxy we would call it a "supernova impostor". 170 years ago it experienced... more...

  • Stellar Pulsationsby J.C. Suárez; R. Garrido; L. A. Balona; J. Christensen-Dalsgaard

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 181.15

    Analyses of photometric time series obtained from the MOST , CoRoT and Kepler space missions were presented at the 20th conference on Stellar Pulsations (Granada, September 2011). These results are leading to a re-appraisal of our views on stellar pulsation in some stars and posing some new and unexpected challenges. The very important and exciting... more...

  • Dwarf Galaxies: Keys to Galaxy Formation and Evolutionby Polychronis Papaderos; Simone Recchi; Gerhard Hensler

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 286.66

    Dwarf galaxy research constitutes an extremely vibrant field of astrophysical research, with many long-standing questions still unsettled and new ones constantly arising. The intriguing diversity of the dwarf galaxy population, observed with advanced ground-based and space-borne observatories over a wide spectral window providing an unprecedented... more...

  • Fifty Years of Quasarsby Mauro D'Onofrio; Paola Marziani; Jack W. Sulentic

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 181.15

    Formatted as a series of interviews with noted researchers in the field, this book reviews the history of quasar research and describes how advances in instrumentation and computation have aided quasar astronomy and changed our basic understanding of quasars. more...

  • On the Formation of the Most Massive Stars in the Galaxyby Roberto J. Galván-Madrid

    Springer New York 2012; US$ 95.90

    This book presents results of Submillimeter Array (SMA) and Very Large Array (VLA) studies of massive-star formation regions in the early stages of ionization. more...

  • A User's Guide to the Meade LXD55 and LXD75 Telescopesby Martin Peston

    Springer New York 2010; US$ 28.70

    I have owned telescopes for over 25 years since I was a young lad. I purchased an LXD55 AR-6 Refractor in 2002, and was one of the first to own one in the UK. I am also a proud owner of an LXD75 SC-8. Armed with these two very different telescopes, I have spent many hours searching the skies for interesting objects using Meade's Autostar Goto facility.... more...

  • The First Galaxiesby Tommy Wiklind; Bahram Mobasher; Volker Bromm

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 138.52

    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...

  • From Black Clouds to Black Holesby Jayant Vishnu Narlikar

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1985; US$ 29.00 US$ 25.23

    This book describes in a non-technical language, one of the success stories of modern (twentieth-century) astronomy. It presents us with the physical picture of what constitutes a star, with a description of how a star evolves with time, how its shape and brightness change, how it manufactures the chemical elements deep in its interior, what makes... more...
