  • 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...

  • Suzaku Studies of White Dwarf Stars and the Galactic X-ray Background Emissionby Takayuki Yuasa

    Springer 2012; US$ 139.00

    This thesis presents a study of the origin of an apparently extended X-ray emission associated with the Galactic ridge. The study was carried out with broadband spectra obtained from mapping observations in the Galactic bulge region conducted in 2005–2010 by the Suzaku space X-ray observatory. The spectra were analyzed with a newly constructed... more...

  • Extreme Explosionsby David S. Stevenson

    Springer 2013; US$ 39.99

    What happens at the end of the life of massive stars? At one time we thought all these stars followed similar evolutionary paths. However, new discoveries have shown that things are not quite that simple. This book focuses on the extreme -the most intense, brilliant and peculiar- of astronomical explosions. It features highly significant observational... more...

  • The Physics of Galaxy Formationby Claudia Del P. Lagos

    Springer 2013; US$ 179.00

    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 major... more...

  • Exploding Superstarsby Alain Mazure; Stéphane Basa

    Springer 2009; US$ 29.95

    Shows how great stellar explosions have become extremely important to cosmologists trying to understand the evolution of our universe since the Big Bang and the scale of that universe. This book describes the very early universe, after the Big Bang, and then how 'the lights came on all over the universe as the very first stars began to shine.' more...
