  • Galaxyby James Geach

    Reaktion Books 2014; US$ 35.00

    Each night, we are able to gaze up at the night sky and look at the thousands of stars that stretch to the end of our individual horizons. But the stars we see are only those that make up our own Milky Way galaxy?but one of hundreds of billions in the whole of the universe, each separated  by inconceivably huge tracts of empty space. In this... more...

  • Stellar Formationby V C Reddish

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    Stellar Formation brings together knowledge about the formation of stars. In seeking to determine the conditions necessary for star formation, this book examines questions such as how, where, and why stars form, and at what rate and with what properties. This text also considers whether the formation of a star is an accident or an integral part of... more...

  • Pulsating Starsby Márcio Catelan; Horace A. Smith

    Wiley 2015; US$ 120.95

    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...

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

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 349.00

     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$ 179.00

    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...
