  • The Sun: New Challengesby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 199.00

    These are the proceedings of the Symposium 3 of JENAM 2011 on new scientific challenges posed by the Sun. The topics covered are   1. The unusual sunspot minimum, which poses challenges to the solar dynamo theory 2. The Sun?s Terra-Hertz emission, which opens a new observational window 3. Corona wave activity 4. Space weather agents - initiation,... more...

  • Multi-scale Dynamical Processes in Space and Astrophysical Plasmasby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 199.00

    Magnetized plasmas in the universe exhibit complex dynamical behavior over a huge range of scales. The fundamental mechanisms of energy transport, redistribution and conversion occur at multiple scales. The driving mechanisms often include energy accumulation, free-energy-excited relaxation processes, dissipation and self-organization. The plasma processes... more...

  • The Science of Solar System Icesby

    Springer New York 2012; US$ 229.00

    The role of laboratory research and simulations in advancing our understanding of solar system ices (including satellites, KBOs, comets, and giant planets) is becoming increasingly important. Understanding ice surface radiation processing, particle and radiation penetration depths, surface and subsurface chemistry, morphology, phases, density, conductivity,... more...

  • Observing Photons in Spaceby

    Springer New York 2013; US$ 279.00

    This book covers all spectral domains used for observing astrophysical objects and phenomena in space. It presents extensive details on general techniques used in space astronomy, such as calibration, cryogenics in space and laser aligned structures. more...

  • Catastrophic Events Caused by Cosmic Objectsby Vitaly Adushkin; Ivan Nemchinov

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 159.00

    Many times all of us could hear from mass media that an asteroid approached and swept past the Earth. Such an asteroid or comet will inevitably strike the planet some day. This volume considers hazards due to collisions with cosmic objects, particularly in light of recent investigations of impacts by the authors. Each chapter written by an expert... more...

  • Problemi di meccanica quantistica non relativisticaby Carlo Alabiso; Alessandro Chiesa

    Springer 2012; US$ 39.95

    Il volume raccoglie una selezione di problemi assegnati nei corsi di Meccanica Quantistica non relativistica previsti per la Laurea in Fisica presso l’Università degli Studi di Parma. Gli oltre 300 problemi sono divisi in undici capitoli tematici, all’interno dei quali è possibile individuare vari livelli di difficoltà, per... more...

  • Relativistic Fluids and Magneto-fluidsby A. M. Anile

    Cambridge University Press 1990; US$ 76.00

    Introductory account which has applications in astrophysics and plasma physics. more...

  • Relativistic Astrophysics and Cosmology ? Einstein?s Legacyby Bernd Aschenbach; Vadim Burwitz; Günther Hasinger; Bruno Leibundgut

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 139.00

    "Relativistic Astrophysics and Cosmology" have developed into important and fruitful research areas with a hitherto unprecented public interest. The year 2005, which marked the 100th anniversary of the 'annus mirabilis', that year in which Albert Einstein published three of his most important scientific papers, was the perfect opportunity to review... more...

  • Self-Organized Criticality in Astrophysicsby Markus Aschwanden

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 189.00

      This book addresses for the first time the subject of "Self-organized criticality" (SOC) in astrophysical systems. The book illustrates the relevance of SOC to such sciences as astrophysics, geophysics, biophysics and ecophysics. more...
