Supergiant stars

  • Evolution of Massive Starsby Dany Vanbeveren

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 129.00

    Massive stars occupy an exceptional place in general astrophysics. They trigger many if not all of the important processes in galactic evolution whereas due to their intrinsic brightness, they offer the (only until now) possibility to study the stellar content and stellar behaviour in distant galaxies. The last, say, 25 years, massive stars have been... more...

  • Superstelle in esplosioneby Alain Mazure; Stéphane Basa

    Springer Milan 2010; US$ 19.95

    Le supernovae e i gamma-ray burst, gli eventi più catastrofici che si verificano nell?Universo, sono oggetto di studio nei campi più dinamici della moderna ricerca astronomica. Dei secondi ancora non conosciamo con precisione i meccanismi che li innescano e tuttavia forti indizi suggeriscono che, come nelle supernovae, la causa scatenante sia il collasso... more...

  • Exploding Superstarsby Alain Mazure; Stéphane Basa

    Praxis 2009; US$ 29.95

    Supernovae and gamma-ray bursters are highly fertile areas of research. In this book, cosmologists Dr Alain Mazure and Dr Stéphane Basa describe at a popular level the causes of the greatest explosions in the universe. more...

  • Supernovaeby Martin Mobberley

    Springer New York 2007; US$ 32.95

    This book is a unique guide to supernova facts, and it is also an observing/discovery guide, all in one package. It is the only book about supernovae that explains to amateur astronomers what they are, and how to observe and discover them. more...

  • Cosmic Catastrophesby J. Craig Wheeler

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 36.00

    Fully updated second edition for undergraduate students in astronomy and astrophysics. more...

  • Cosmic Explosionsby J.M. Marcaide; Kurt Weiler

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 369.00

    Supernovae are among the most energetic phenomena in the Universe and - lated to almost all aspects of modern astrophysics including starburst gal- ies, cosmic ray acceleration, neutron star and black hole formation, nuc- osynthesis and ISM chemical enrichment, energy input to the ISM, cosmic distance scale determination, dark energy related cosmological... more...

  • Open Issues In Core Collapse Supernova Theoryby Anthony Mezzacappa; George M Fuller

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 339.00

    Efforts to uncover the explosion mechanism of core collapse supernovae and to understand all of their associated phenomena have been ongoing for nearly four decades. Despite this, our theoretical understanding of these cosmic events remains limited; two- and three-dimensional modeling of these events is in its infancy. Most of the modeling efforts... more...

  • Cosmic Explosions in Three Dimensionsby Peter Höflich; Pawan Kumar; J. Craig Wheeler

    Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 80.00

    Originally published in 2004, this volume marked the transition to a fresh paradigm in the study of stellar explosions. more...
