  • The Physics of Galaxy Formationby Claudia Del P. Lagos

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 141.52

    This thesis addresses two of the central processes which underpin the formation of galaxies: the formation of stars and the injection of energy into the interstellar medium from supernovae, called feedback. In her work Claudia Lagos has completely overhauled the treatment of these processes in simulations of galaxy formation. Her thesis makes two... more...

  • 50 Years of Brown Dwarfsby Viki Joergens

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 94.71

    The years 2012/2013 mark the 50th anniversary of the theoretical prediction that Brown Dwarfs, i.e. degenerate objects which are just not massive enough to sustain stable hydrogen fusion, exist. Some 20 years after their discovery, how Brown Dwarfs form is still one of the main open questions in the theory of star formation. In this volume, the pioneers... more...
