  • Lessons from the Local Groupby Kenneth Freeman; Bruce Elmegreen; David Block; Matthew Woolway

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 232.48

     Our understanding of galaxy formation comes mostly from two sources: sensitive observations at high angular resolution of the high-redshift Universe, where galaxies are observed to be forming, and detailed observations of individual stars and clouds in the Local Group, where telltale remnants from its formative time remain and similar processes operate... more...

  • Ecology of Blue Straggler Starsby Henri M. J. Boffin; Giovanni Carraro; Giacomo Beccari

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2014; US$ 116.76

    The existence of blue straggler stars, which appear younger, hotter, and more massive than their siblings, is at odds with a simple picture of stellar evolution. Such stars should have exhausted their nuclear fuel and evolved long ago to become cooling white dwarfs. They are found to exist in globular clusters, open clusters, dwarf spheroidal galaxies... more...

  • Eyes on the Skiesby Govert Schilling; Lars Lindberg Christensen

    Wiley 2011; US$ 45.00 US$ 39.50

    Adopted as the official book of the International Year of Astronomy (IYA) 2009, this stunningly illustrated history of telescopic discovery spans the range from the first telescopes via the Hubble Space Telescope to next generation platforms, and how they have changed and continue to change our view of the universe, our place in it and where it all... more...

  • Active Galactic Nucleiby Volker Beckmann; Chris Shrader

    Wiley 2013; US$ 100.95 US$ 87.49

    This AGN textbook includes phenomena based on new results in the X-Ray domain from new telescopes such as Chandra and XMM Newton not mentioned in any other book. Furthermore, it considers also the Fermi Gamma Ray Space Telescope with its revolutionary advances of unprecedented sensitivity, field of view and all-sky monitoring. Those and other new... more...

  • Old Stellar Populationsby Santi Cassisi; Maurizio Salaris

    Wiley 2013; US$ 100.95 US$ 87.49

    The book discusses the theoretical path to decoding the information gathered from observations of old stellar systems. It focuses on old stellar systems because these are the fossil record of galaxy formation and provide invaluable information ont he evolution of cosmic structures and the universe as a whole. The aim is to present results obtained... more...

  • Pulsating Starsby M?rcio Catelan; Horace A. Smith

    Wiley 2015; US$ 196.00 US$ 169.87

    This book surveys our understanding of stars which change in brightness because they pulsate. Pulsating variable stars are keys to distance scales inside and beyond the Milky Way galaxy. They test our understanding not only of stellar pulsation theory but also of stellar structure and evolution theory. Moreover, pulsating stars are important probes... more...

  • An Atlas of Local Group Galaxiesby Paul W. Hodge; Brooke P. Skelton; Joy Ashizawa

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 201.68

    This Atlas provides a complete set of images of Local Group Galaxies (excluding the three for which identification atlases are already in print) and shows the most important objects, including many thousands of individual stars and interstellar objects. It is unique in its coverage and format and provides a source of these fundamental data that... more...

  • Merging Processes in Galaxy Clustersby L. Feretti; I.M. Gioia; G. Giovannini

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 201.68

    Mergers are the mechanisms by which galaxy clusters are assembled through the hierarchical growth of smaller clusters and groups. Major cluster mergers are the most energetic events in the Universe since the Big Bang. Many of the observed properties of clusters depend on the physics of the merging process. These include substructure, shock, intra... more...

  • An Introduction to Black Holes, Information and the String Theory Revolutionby Leonard Susskind; James Lindesay

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 15.00 US$ 13.65

    Over the last decade the physics of black holes has been revolutionized by developments that grew out of Jacob Bekenstein's realization that black holes have entropy. Steven Hawking raised profound issues concerning the loss of information in black hole evaporation and the consistency of quantum mechanics in a world with gravity. more...

  • Stellar Rotationby Jean-Louis Tassoul

    Cambridge University Press 2000; US$ 51.00

    This authoritative volume, first published in 2000, provides the definitive reference on stellar rotation, combining theory and observation. more...
