  • Classic Telescopesby Neil English

    Springer 2012; US$ 39.95

    Classic telescopes are of interest to amateur astronomers for a variety of reasons. There are the dedicated collectors, but there are also many amateurs who love the nostalgia they inspire. These telescopes "feel" different from any contemporary telescope and perhaps have a unique ability to reconnect the owner to a bygone age of craftmanship.... more...

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

    Springer 2012; US$ 179.00

    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...

  • An Introduction to the Evolution of Single and Binary Starsby Matthew Benacquista

    Springer 2013; US$ 59.95

    An Introduction to the Evolution of Single and Binary Stars provides physicists with an understanding of binary and single star evolution, beginning with a background and introduction of basic astronomical concepts. Although a general treatment of stellar structure and evolution is included, the text stresses the physical processes that lead to stellar... more...

  • From Black Clouds to Black Holesby Jayant Vishnu Narlikar

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1985; US$ 108.00

    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...

  • Europe to the Starsby Govert Schilling; Lars Lindberg Christensen

    Wiley 2013; US$ 49.95

    The creation of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in 1962 was the culmination of the dream of leading astronomers from five European countries. Over the years, as more member states joined, ESO constructed the La Silla and Paranal observatories, as well as the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) together with partners. ESO is... more...

  • The Jewel on the Mountaintopby Claus Madsen

    Wiley 2013; US$ 75.00

    Authored by ESO senior advisor Claus Madsen, the present book comprises 576 action-packed pages of ESO history and dramatic stories about the people behind the organisation. This is the ultimate historical account about ESO and its telescopes in the southern hemisphere, but also about a truly remarkable European success story in research. Spanning... more...

  • Active Galactic Nucleiby Volker Beckmann; Chris Shrader

    Wiley 2013; US$ 170.00

    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$ 161.00

    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...

  • The Physics of Starsby A. C. Phillips

    Wiley 2013; US$ 65.00

    The Physics of Stars, Second Edition, is a concise introduction to the properties of stellar interiors and consequently the structure and evolution of stars. Strongly emphasising the basic physics, simple and uncomplicated theoretical models are used to illustrate clearly the connections between fundamental physics and stellar properties. This text... more...

  • The Great Refractor of Meudon Observatoryby Audouin Dollfus

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    The large telescope at Meudon has become legendary. When it was conceived, after 1870, astronomy as a whole was limited to visual observation. Knowledge of the sky was limited to what one could see, assisted only by optical means. The large telescopes produced at this time produced larger images, permitting close-up views: the Meudon telescope was... more...
