  • Very High Energy Cosmic Gamma Radiationby Michael D Smith

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 252.00

    Gamma ray astronomy, the branch of high energy astrophysics that studies the sky in energetic ?-ray photons, is destined to play a crucial role in the exploration of nonthermal phenomena in the Universe in their most extreme and violent forms. The great potential of this discipline offers impressive coverage of many ?hot topics? of modern astrophysics... more...

  • Compact Stellar X-ray Sourcesby Walter Lewin; Michiel van der Klis

    Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 58.00

    A 2006 reference work on astrophysical compact objects that emit X-rays, for graduate students and researchers. more...

  • Very High Energy Gamma-Ray Astronomyby T.C. Weekes

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 220.00

    High energy gamma-ray photons are the prime probes of the relativistic or high-energy universe, populated by black holes, neutron stars, supernovae, quasars, and matter-antimatter annihilations. Through studying the gamma-ray sky, astrophysicists are able to better understand the formation and behavior of these exotic and energetic bodies. Very High... more...

  • The Biggest Bangsby Jonathan Katz

    Oxford University Press 2002; US$ 44.99

    For over 25 years, gamma-ray bursts were the outstanding mystery in astronomy. No one knew where they were or how they worked. 'The Biggest Bangs' tells how the mystery was unravelled, from the discovery of gamma-ray bursts by a Cold War satellite system monitoring the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty to the localization of bursts in distant galaxies. more...

  • The Square Kilometre Arrayby Peter J. Hall

    Springer 2006; US$ 219.00

    Presents an overview of the engineering of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA), a revolutionary instrument designed to be the world's largest radio telescope. This book, containing 36 refereed papers written by leaders in SKA engineering, has been compiled by the International SKA Project Office. more...

  • The Invisible Universeby Gerrit L. Verschuur

    Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2007; US$ 32.95

    Presents the story of radio astronomy, of how radio waves are generated by stars, supernova, quasars, colliding galaxies, and by the very beginnings of the universe itself. This edition helps you learn what astronomers are doing with those huge dishes dotted around the world. more...

  • Fundamental Questions in Astrophysicsby Ana I. Gómez de Castro; Willem Wamsteker

    Springer 2007; US$ 179.00

    The Ultraviolet is a fundamental energy domain since it is one of the most powerful tools to study plasmas at temperatures in the 3,000-300,000K range. This book describes the fundamental problems in modern astrophysics that cannot progress without easy and wide-spread access to modern UV instrumentation. more...

  • X-Ray Astronomyby Joachim E. Trümper; Günther Hasinger

    Springer 2008; US$ 159.00

    Over the years X-ray astronomy has become an integral part of modern astrophysics and cosmology. This book summarizes the status of X-ray astronomy in terms of observational results and their astrophysical interpretation. It is written for students, astrophysicists, as well as physicists interested in the field. more...
