  • 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...

  • Observing Photons in Spaceby Martin C. E. Huber; Anuschka Pauluhn; J. Len Culhane; J. Gethyn Timothy; Klaus Wilhelm; Alex Zehnder

    Springer 2013; US$ 279.00

    An ideal resource for lecturers, this book provides a comprehensive review of experimental space astronomy. The number of astronomers whose knowledge and interest is concentrated on interpreting observations has grown substantially in the past decades; yet, the number of scientists who are familiar with and capable of dealing with instrumentation has... more...

  • Neutrino Huntersby Ray Jayawardhana

    HarperCollins Canada 2013; US$ 23.99

    Every second of every day and night, many trillions of neutrinos pass through your body. But most people had never heard of them until they made headlines recently for possibly travelling faster than light. Luckily, these ghostly particles—celebrated in a delightful John Updike poem and (falsely) blamed for heating the Earth?s core in the Hollywood... more...

  • Magnetic Processes in Astrophysicsby ; Gü diger; nther; Rainer Hollerbach; Leonid L. Kitchatinov

    Wiley 2013; US$ 165.00

    In this work the authors draw upon their expertise in geophysical and astrophysical MHD to explore the motion of electrically conducting fluids, the so-called dynamo effect, and describe the similarities and differences between different magnetized objects. They also explain why magnetic fields are crucial to the formation of the stars, and discuss... more...

  • Collisionless Plasmas in Astrophysicsby Gé Belmont; rard; Roland Grappin; Fabrice Mottez; Filippo Pantellini; Guy Pelletier

    Wiley 2013; US$ 145.00

    Collisionless Plasmas in Astrophysics examines the unique properties of media without collisions in plasma physics. Experts in this field, the authors present the first book to concentrate on collisionless conditions in plasmas, whether close or not to thermal equilibrium. Filling a void in scientific literature, Collisionless Plasmas in Astrophysics... more...

  • Constant-Scale Natural Boundary Mapping to Reveal Global and Cosmic Processesby Pamela Elizabeth Clark; Chuck Clark

    Springer 2013; US$ 49.99

    Whereas conventional maps can be expressed as outward-expanding formulae with well-defined central features and relatively poorly defined edges, Constant Scale Natural Boundary (CSNB) maps have well-defined boundaries that result from natural processes and thus allow spatial and dynamic relationships to be observed in a new way useful to understanding... more...

  • Exotic Nucleiby Yu E. Penionzhkevich; Yu G. Sobolev

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 231.00

    The production and the properties of nuclei in extreme conditions, such as high isospin, temperature, angular momenta, large deformations etc., have become the subject of detailed investigations in all scientific centers. The main topics discussed at the Symposium were: Synthesis and Properties of Exotic Nuclei; Superheavy Elements; Rare Processes... more...

  • Beating the Oddsby Meg Weston Smith

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2013; US$ 36.00

    E A Milne was one of the giants of 20th century astrophysics and cosmology. His bold ideas, underpinned by his Christianity, sparked controversy — he believed two time scales operate in the universe.Struggling against poverty, Milne won five scholarships to Cambridge, but he never finished his degree. In World War I he was invited to develop... more...

  • Essential Astrophysicsby Kenneth R. Lang

    Springer 2013; US$ 89.95

    Essential Astrophysics is a book to learn or teach from, as well as a fundamental reference volume for anyone interested in astronomy and astrophysics. It presents astrophysics from basic principles without requiring any previous study of astronomy or astrophysics. It serves as a comprehensive introductory text, which takes the student through the... 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...
