  • 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...

  • From X-ray Binaries to Quasarsby Robert P. Fender; Luis C. Ho; Thomas J. Maccarone

    Springer 2007; US$ 179.00

    A collection of papers using the relative advantages of studying stellar mass and supermassive black holes. The topics discussed here include the state of the art in black hole observational and theoretical work-variability, spectroscopy, disk-jet connections, and multi-wavelength campaigns on black holes. more...

  • Gravitational Collapse and Spacetime Singularitiesby Pankaj S. Joshi

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 42.00

    This 2007 book examines gravitational collapse for graduate students and researchers in gravitation physics, fundamental physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. more...

  • Supernovae and How to Observe Themby Martin Mobberley

    Springer 2007; US$ 32.95

    Supernovae represent the most violent stellar explosions in the universe. This book presents supernovo facts and explains what they are, and how to observe and discover them. It contains detailed galaxy images and is aimed at amateur astronomers who are readers of astronomy periodicals. more...

  • Black Hole Gravitohydromagneticsby Brian Punsly

    Springer 2008; US$ 189.00

    Black hole gravitohydromagnetics (GHM) is developed from the rudiments to the frontiers of research in this book. GHM describes plasma interactions that combine the effects of gravity and a strong magnetic field, in the vicinity (ergosphere) of a rapidly rotating black hole. This topic was created in response to the astrophysical quest to understand... more...

  • Neutron Stars and Pulsarsby Werner Becker

    Springer 2009; US$ 219.00

    Studying neutron stars means studying physics in regimes unattainable in any terrestrial laboratory. This book reviews the progress made since the early days of pulsar astronomy, and focuses on questions such as: 'What have we learned about the subject and how did we learn it?' and 'What are the most important open questions in this area'. more...

  • Clocks in the Skyby Geoff McNamara

    Springer 2009; US$ 29.95

    Pulsars are rapidly spinning neutron stars, the collapsed cores of once massive stars that ended their lives as supernova explosions. Pulsar rotation rates can reach incredible speeds, up to hundreds of times per second. This title explores the history, subsequent discovery and contemporary research into pulsar astronomy. more...

  • Black Holes, White Dwarfs and Neutron Starsby Stuart L. Shapiro; Saul A. Teukolsky

    Wiley 2008; US$ 170.00

    This self-contained textbook brings together many different branches of physics--e.g. nuclear physics, solid state physics, particle physics, hydrodynamics, relativity--to analyze compact objects. The latest astronomical data is assessed. Over 250 exercises. more...

  • Superstelle in esplosioneby Alain Mazure; Stephane Basa

    Springer 2010; US$ 19.95

    Le supernovae e i gamma-ray burst, gli eventi pił catastrofici che si verificano nell?Universo, sono oggetto di studio nei campi pił 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...

  • Black Hole Astrophysicsby David L. Meier

    Springer 2009; US$ 189.00

    As a result of significant research over the past 20 years, black holes are now linked to some of the most spectacular and exciting phenomena in the Universe, ranging in size from those that have the same mass as stars to the super-massive objects that lie at the heart of most galaxies, including our own Milky Way. This book first introduces the properties... more...
