  • The Labyrinth of Star Formationby Dimitris Stamatellos; Simon Goodwin; Derek Ward-Thompson

    Springer 2014; US$ 259.00

    This volume contains the proceedings from the conference 'The Labyrinth of Star Formation' that was held in Crete, Greece, in June 2012, to honour the contributions to the study of star formation made by Professor Anthony Whitworth of Cardiff University.The book covers many aspects of theoretical and observational star formation: low-mass star... 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...

  • The Origin Of Starsby Michael D. Smith

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 128.00

    Where do stars come from and how do they form? These are profound questions which link the nature of our Universe to the roots of mankind. Yet, until a recent revolution in understanding, the proposed answers have been raw speculation. Now, accompanying penetrating observations, a new picture has come into prominence. more...

  • Evolution of Stars and Stellar Populationsby Maurizio Salaris; Santi Cassisi

    Wiley 2005; US$ 186.00

    "...books in this field will be increasingly useful." ( Physical Sciences Educational Reviews , December 2006) "…will serve generations of students to come as an authoritative reference which details how stars and stellar populations come to develop (and then evolve) over long blocks of time." ( The Electric Review , March/April 2006) "Well... more...

  • Starburstsby Richard de Grijs; Rosa M. González Delgado

    Springer 2006; US$ 259.00

    Starbursts are important features of early galaxy evolution. Many of the distant, high-redshift galaxies we are able to detect are in a starbursting phase, often apparently provoked by a violent gravitational interaction with another galaxy. In fact, if we did not know that major starbursts existed, these conference proceedings testify that we would... more...

  • The Formation of Starsby Steven W. Stahler; Francesco Palla

    Wiley 2008; US$ 130.00

    Steven Stahler is a research astronomer at the University of California, Berkeley. He received his doctorate in physics at Berkeley in 1980. Following postdoctoral studies at Cornell University and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, and a faculty position at MIT, he returned to the West Coast to pursue diverse aspects of star formation... more...

  • How Did the First Stars and Galaxies Form?by Abraham Loeb

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 29.95

    Though astrophysicists have developed a theoretical framework for understanding how the first stars and galaxies formed, only now are we able to begin testing those theories with actual observations of the very distant, early universe. We are entering a new and exciting era of discovery that will advance the frontiers of knowledge, and this book couldn't... more...

  • From Dying Stars to the Birth of Lifeby Jerry L. Cranford

    Nottingham University Press 2011; US$ 32.00

    Written in an informal manner, this account tells the incredible story of the birth of an entirely new field of science called Astrobiology—a field that is now investigating whether life might exist on other worlds. From the discovery that other stars in our galaxy are circled by planets to the detection of single-cell organisms found living on Earth... more...

  • Principles of Star Formationby Peter H. Bodenheimer

    Springer 2011; US$ 124.00

    Understanding star formation is one of the key fields in present-day astrophysics. This book treats a wide variety of the physical processes involved, as well as the main observational discoveries, with key points being discussed in detail. The current star formation in our galaxy is emphasized, because the most detailed observations are available... more...

  • Circumstellar Media in Late Stages of Stellar Evolutionby R. E. S. Clegg; I. R. Stevens; W. P. S. Meikle

    Cambridge University Press 1994; US$ 147.00

    A thorough and up-to-date review of how different types of stars interact with their immediate surroundings - essential reading for graduate students and researchers. more...
