  • White Dwarfs: Cosmological and Galactic Probesby E. Sion; S. Vennes; H. Shipman

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 209.00

    The emphasis on white dwarf stars and cosmology arise from the advances in cosmological and galactic structure research in which these stars play a prominent role. Aimed at graduate students and scientific professionals, this book includes reviews focusing on four areas: white dwarf supernovae, cosmology, accretion physics and galactic structure. more...

  • Joint Evolution of Black Holes and Galaxiesby M. Colpi; V. Gorini; F. Haardt; U. Moschella

    CRC Press 2006; US$ 220.00

    Black holes are among the most mysterious objects that the human mind has been capable of imagining. As pure mathematical constructions, they are tools for exploiting the fundamental laws of physics. As astronomical sources, they are part of our cosmic landscape, warping space-time, coupled to the large-scale properties and life cycle of their host... more...

  • Observing And Measuring Visual Double Starsby Robert W Argyle

    Springer 2006; US$ 39.95

    Enormous numbers of wide, faint pairs of Double Stars are under-observed or not observed at all. This is where amateur astronomers can help. This book caters for the use of every level of equipment, from simple commercial telescopes to micrometers and CCD cameras for amateur astronomers who want to make a genuine scientific contribution. more...

  • Zdenek Kopal's Binary Star Legacyby Horst Drechsel; Miloslav Zejda

    Springer Netherlands 2005; US$ 259.00

    An international conference entitled "Zdenek Kopal's Binary Star Legacy" was held on the occasion of the late Professor Kopal's 90th birthday in his home town of Litomy?l/Czech Republic and dedicated to the memory of one of the leading astronomers of the 20th century. Professor Kopal, who devoted 60 years of his scientific life to the exploration... more...

  • The Multinational History of Strasbourg Astronomical Observatoryby Andre HECK

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 199.00

    Strasbourg Astronomical Observatory is quite an interesting place for historians: several changes of nationality between France and Germany, high-profile scientists having been based there, big projects born or installed in its walls, and so on. Most of the documents circulating on the history of the Observatory and on related matters have however... more...

  • Statistics of the Galaxy Distributionby Vicent J. Martinez; Enn Saar

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 172.95

    Over the last decade, statisticians have developed new statistical tools in the field of spatial point processes. At the same time, observational efforts have yielded a huge amount of new cosmological data to analyze. Although the main tools in astronomy for comparing theoretical results with observation are statistical, in recent years, cosmologists... more...

  • Evolutionary Processes in Binary and Multiple Starsby Peter Eggleton

    Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 72.00

    This 2006 volume discusses the statistics of binary stars; the evolution of single stars; and interaction between multiple stars. more...
