  • Dark Nebulae, Dark Lanes, and Dust Beltsby Antony Cooke

    Springer 2012; US$ 39.95

    There are 'voids' obscuring all kinds of objects in the cosmos. Voids may be within an object, or between an object and us. Dark Nebulae, Dark Lanes, and Dust Lanes looks out into the deep sky at those apparent dark regions in space, which are among the most compelling telescopic destinations for amateur observers. One famous example is Barnard's... more...

  • The Spiral Galaxy M33by P. Hodge

    Springer 2011; US$ 159.00

    This book summarizes the gathering of information on and the growing understanding of M33 from the 1920s, when Hubble first determined its true nature, to the 21st century, when the Hubble Telescope probed deeply into its many secrets. With its regular symmetrical spiral structure, and its being not tilted too much and near enough to allow detailed... 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...
