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

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 210.00

    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...

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

    Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 68.00

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

  • Modeling Black Hole Evaporationby Alessandro Fabbri

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 156.00

    The scope of this book is two-fold: the first part gives a fully detailed and pedagogical presentation of the Hawking effect and its physical implications, and the second discusses the backreaction problem, especially in connection with exactly solvable semiclassical models that describe analytically the black hole evaporation process. The book aims... 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...

  • The Black Hole At The Center Of The Milky Wayby Andreas Eckart; Rainer Schödel; Christian Straubmeier

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 189.00

    Reviewing the fundamental instrumental techniques and current observational results, this book unveils the mysteries of the physical processes in the central parsec of our Milky Way: the super-massive black hole embedded in a central stellar cluster as well as the gas and dust in the circumnuclear region. The observations described cover the entire... more...

  • Isolated Neutron Starsby Silvia Zane; Roberto Turolla; Dany Page

    Springer 2007; US$ 219.00

    This book collects the contributions presented at the conference Isolated Neutron Stars: From the Surface to the Interior, held in London in April 2006. Forty years after the discovery of radio pulsars it presents an up-to-date description of the new vision of isolated neutron stars that has emerged in recent years with the advance of multi-wavelength... more...

  • Cosmic Explosionsby J.M. Marcaide; Kurt W. Weiler

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 369.00

    The proceedings of the conference Supernovae 2003 (IAU colloquium 192) provides an extensive state-of-the-art survey of all theoretical and observational aspects of supernovae and gamma-ray bursts, as well as their impact on cosmology. This volume offers everyone working in this field an authoritative and comprehensive source of reference. The present... more...

  • Stellar Remnantsby S.D. Kawaler; I. Novikov; G. Srinivasan

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 89.95

    This volume examines the internal structure, origin and evolution of white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes, all objects at the final stage of stellar evolution. It covers topics such as: pulsation of white dwarfs; millisecond pulsars; and the dynamics around black holes. more...

  • Rotation And Accretion Powered Pulsarsby Pranab Ghosh

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 360.00

    This book is an introduction to pulsars, a key area in high energy astrophysics with continuing potential for fundamental discoveries. Throughout the book runs the unifying thread of the evolutionary link between rotation-powered pulsars and accretion-powered pulsars — a milestone of modern astrophysics. Early textbooks on pulsars dealt almost... more...

  • Einstein's Enigma or Black Holes in My Bubble Bathby C.V. Vishveshwara

    Springer 2006; US$ 39.95

    A funny rendition of the story of gravitation theory from the early historic origins to the developments in astrophysics, focusing on Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity and black-hole physics. more...
