Astronomical observatories; History

  • Asteroseismologyby C. Aerts

    Springer 2010; US$ 209.00

    A guide for graduate students and scientists working in stellar astrophysics. It provides a general introduction to asteroseismology, and comprehensive coverage of its various aspects: fundamental theory, observations and observational techniques, and methodology of data analysis. more...

  • Setting-up a Small Observatoryby David Arditti

    Springer 2007; US$ 29.95

    Provides information about smaller-scale observatories, and how to set one up. This book covers the details of design, siting and construction - once a basic type has been decided upon. It also considers the aesthetics of amateur observatories - fitting them in with family and neighbors, and disguising them as common garden buildings if necessary. more...

  • Physics, Formation and Evolution of Rotating Starsby A. Burkert; W. B. Burton

    Springer 2008; US$ 179.00

    Rotation is ubiquitous at each step of stellar evolution, from star formation to the final stages, and it affects the course of evolution, the timescales and nucleosynthesis. Stellar rotation is also an essential prerequisite for the occurrence of Gamma-Ray Bursts. This book examines the basic mechanical and thermal effects of rotation. more...

  • Pulsating Starsby M?rcio Catelan; Horace A. Smith

    Wiley 2015; US$ 120.95

    This book surveys our understanding of stars which change in brightness because they pulsate. Pulsating variable stars are keys to distance scales inside and beyond the Milky Way galaxy. They test our understanding not only of stellar pulsation theory but also of stellar structure and evolution theory. Moreover, pulsating stars are important probes... more...

  • Building a Roll-Off Roof Observatoryby John Hicks

    Springer 2008; US$ 59.95

    Covers various aspects of designing a roll-off roof observatory: planning the site, requirements for viewing, conforming to by-laws, and orientation of the structure. This book outlines construction of a typical building, and the accompanying CD-R provides diagrams for each phase of construction. more...

  • The Initial Mass Function 50 Years Laterby Francesco Palla; Hans Zinnecker; Edvige Corbelli

    Springer 2007; US$ 329.00

    Presents the proceedings of a conference held in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the Initial Mass Function (IMF) concept by Ed Salpeter. This book includes reviews on the deep implications of the IMF on star formation theories, and on the physical conditions of the gas before and after star formation. more...

  • An Introduction to Radiative Transferby Annamaneni Peraiah

    Cambridge University Press 2001; US$ 96.00

    This 2001 book presents the methodologies used by astrophysicists for solving the radiative transfer equation. more...

  • Stellar Populationsby Alvio Renzini; Laura Greggio

    Wiley 2012; US$ 160.00

    Alvio Greggio held a professorship at the University of Bologna before he joined the European Southern Observatory (ESO) as Very Large Telescope program scientist, where he served until 2005; since then he is working at the National Institute of Astrophysics, INAF, in Italy. About 200 peer reviewed papers bear his name, making him one of the most cited... more...

  • Linear Isentropic Oscillations of Starsby Paul Smeyers; Tim Van Hoolst

    Springer 2011; US$ 219.00

    The study of stellar oscillations is the preeminent way to investigate the stability of stars and to interpret their variability. The theory of the linear, isentropic oscillations of isolated gaseous stars, and thus of compressible spherically symmetric equilibrium configurations, has largely been developed from the viewpoint of the hypothesis of the... more...
