  • Catastrophic Events Caused by Cosmic Objectsby V.V. Adushkin; I.V. Nemchinov

    Springer 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 contains... more...

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

  • Relativistic Physics and Cosmologyby Bernd Aschenbach; Vadim Burwitz; Gunther Hasinger; Bruno Leibundgut

    Springer 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... more...

  • Self-Organized Criticality in Astrophysicsby Markus J. Aschwanden

    Springer 2011; US$ 189.00

    Markus Aschwanden introduces the concept of self-organized criticality (SOC) and shows that due to its universality and ubiquity it is a law of nature for which he derives the theoretical framework and specific physical models in this book. He begins by providing an overview of the many diverse phenomena in nature which may be attributed to SOC behaviour.... more...

  • Geheimnisvoller Kosmosby ; Thomas hrke; Roland Wengenmayr

    Wiley 2014; US$ 26.50

    Wie läuft die Fahndung nach der zweiten Erde? Wie beherrschen Dunkle Energie und Dunkle Materie die Entwicklung des Universums? Dieses Buch ist ein aktueller Reiseführer zu den Grenzen der heutigen Erkenntnis. Alle Beiträge in diesem Buch sind hochaktuell und von Fachleuten aus der Forschung geschrieben. Sie geben den Stand der aktuellen... more...

  • Physics of Collisionless Shocksby André Balogh; Rudolf A. Treumann

    Springer 2013; US$ 179.00

    The present book provides a contemporary systematic treatment of shock waves in high-temperature collisionless plasmas as are encountered in near Earth space and in Astrophysics. It consists of two parts. Part I develops the complete theory of shocks in dilute hot plasmas under the assumption of absence of collisions among the charged particles ... more...

  • Texas in Tuscanyby R. Bandiera; Roberto Maiolino; F. Mannucci; Bandiera Rino; Mannucci Filippo

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 282.00

  • Das Buch der Universenby John D. Barrow; Carl Freytag

    Campus Verlag 2011; US$ 24.49

    Hauptbeschreibung Jahrtausendelang war für uns Menschen das eigene Universum so unbegreiflich, dass der Gedanke an andere Welten unvorstellbar war. Erst die moderne Physik mit der Theorie der Multiversen schuf die Voraussetzung, andere, neue Universen zu beschreiben, wie sie nach den Gesetzen der Physik möglich sind. John Barrow zeigt uns die bislang... more...

  • Neutrino Physicsby E. Bellotti; Y. Declais; P. Strolin

    IOS Press 2003; US$ 191.00

    Neutrino physics contributed in an fundamental way to the progress of science, opening important windows of knowledge in elementary particle physics, as well in astrophysics and cosmology. Substantial experimental efforts are presently dedicated to improve our knowledge on neutrino properties as, in fact, we don't know yet some of the basic ones. Although... more...
