The next chapters deal with the families,... 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • An Introduction to Star Formationby Derek Ward-Thompson; Anthony P. Whitworth

    Cambridge University Press 2011; US$ 60.00

  • Stellar Physicsby Gennady S. Bisnovatyi-Kogan; A.Y. Blinov; M. Romanova

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 149.00

    This is an outstanding book, revised and updated, on star formation and evolution. Not only does the author present the current state of knowledge on stellar physics, but he handles with equal care the many problems that this field of research still faces. 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...
