Supernovae

Most popular at the top

  • The Formation and Early Evolution of Starsby Norbert S. Schulz

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 101.08

    This book details complex physical processes involved in the creation and early evolution of stars. It illustrates how these processes reveal themselves from radio wavelengths to high energy X-rays and gamma?rays, with reference towards high energy signatures. more...

  • Supernovaeby Martin Mobberley

    Springer New York 2007; US$ 25.20

    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...

  • Clocks in the Skyby Geoff McNamara

    Springer New York 2009; US$ 25.20

    This book explores the history, subsequent discovery and contemporary research into pulsar astronomy. The story of pulsars is brought right up to date with the recent announcement of a new breed of pulsar, Rotating Radio Transients. more...

  • New Light on Dark Starsby Neil Reid; Suzanne Hawley

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 157.24

    There has been very considerable progress in research into low-mass stars, brown dwarfs and extrasolar planets during the past few years, particularly since the fist edtion of this book was published in 2000. In this new edtion the authors present a comprehensive review of both the astrophysical nature of individual red dwarf and brown dwarf stars... more...

  • Stellar Remnantsby S.D. Kawaler; Georges Meynet; I. Novikov; Daniel Schaerer; G. Srinivasan

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 101.08

    Three eminent scientists, each well known for the clarity of their writing, present for students and researchers what is known about the internal structure, origin and evolution of White Dwarfs, Neutron Stars and Black Holes, all objects at the final stage of stellar evolution. They cover fascinating topics such as pulsation of white dwarfs, millisecond... more...

  • Black Hole Astrophysicsby David L. Meier

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 157.24

    This book begins by reviewing quasars, microquasars, and gamma-ray bursts and shows why black holes are responsible for them. It describes simple, isolated black holes, adding rotation, accretion, radiation and magnetic fields, to show how these objects work. more...

  • Extreme Explosionsby David Stevenson

    Springer New York 2013; US$ 39.30

    This book examines and explains cataclysmic and unusual events at the very frontier of our knowledge of stellar astrophysics, and presents them in a way that non-professionals can understand and enjoy. more...

  • Quantum Black Holesby Xavier Calmet; Bernard Carr; Elizabeth Winstanley

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 48.29

    Written by foremost experts, this short book gives a clear description of the physics of quantum black holes. The reader will learn about quantum black holes in four and higher dimensions, primordial black holes, the production of black holes in high energy particle collisions, Hawking radiation, black holes in models of low scale quantum gravity... more...

  • White Dwarfs: Cosmological and Galactic Probesby E. Sion; S. Vennes; H. Shipman

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 157.24

    In the past few years, general astronomical interest has concentrated on s- eral objects and phenomena where white dwarf stars play a key role. T Type Ia supernovae have been used as evidence to show that, in fact, Einstein did not make his greatest blunder when heallowedfor the possibility of a c- mological constant. Improvements in our knowledge... more...

  • 50 Years of Brown Dwarfsby Viki Joergens

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 97.71

    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...
