  • 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...

  • An Introduction to Black Holes, Information and the String Theory Revolutionby Leonard Susskind; James Lindesay

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 51.00

    Over the last decade the physics of black holes has been revolutionized by developments that grew out of Jacob Bekenstein's realization that black holes have entropy. Steven Hawking raised profound issues concerning the loss of information in black hole evaporation and the consistency of quantum mechanics in a world with gravity. 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Black Hole Astrophysics 2002by Hyun Kyu Lee

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 211.00

    This book consists of about 20 lectures on theoretical and observational aspects of astrophysical black holes, by experts in the field. The basic principles and astrophysical applications of the black hole magnetosphere and the Blandford–Znajek process are reviewed in detail, as well as accretion by black holes, black hole X-Ray binaries, black... more...

  • On the Pulsarby B. B. Kadomtsev; A. Nomerotsky

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 36.00

    This book serves as a good introduction to the physics of pulsars by explaining the subject matter in simple terms which are understandable to both undergraduate physics students and also the general public. On the Pulsar links together ideas about physics, informatics and biology, and contains many original examples, problems and solutions. It starts... more...

  • Cosmic Catastrophesby J. Craig Wheeler

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 41.00

    Fully updated second edition for undergraduate students in astronomy and astrophysics. 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...
