  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.
