  • Searching African Skiesby Sarah Wild

    Jacana Media 2012; US$ 24.99

    An ambitious scientific project is unfolding in the desert of South Africa, with a multi-decade timeline that will eventually see expansion into Western Australia—a project that is detailed and celebrated in this book on the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). The SKA will be the largest and most sensitive radio telescope, expanding the capabilities of scientific... more...

  • Astrophysics at Very High Energiesby Felix Aharonian; Lars Bergström; Charles Dermer; Roland Walter; Marc Türler

    Springer 2013; US$ 99.00

    With the success of Cherenkov Astronomy and more recently with the launch of NASA’s Fermi mission, very-high-energy astrophysics has undergone a revolution in the last years. This book provides three comprehensive and up-to-date reviews of the recent advances in gamma-ray astrophysics and of multi-messenger astronomy. Felix Aharonian and Charles... more...

  • Measuring the Angular Momentum of Supermassive Black Holesby Laura Brenneman

    Springer 2013; US$ 49.99

    Measuring the spin distribution of supermassive black holes is of critical importance for understanding how these black holes and their host galaxies form and evolve over time, yet this type of study is only in its infancy.  This brief describes how astronomers measure spin in supermassive black holes using X-ray spectroscopy.   It also... more...

  • Getting Started in Radio Astronomyby Steven Arnold

    Springer 2013; US$ 34.99

    Radio astronomy is a mystery to the majority of amateur astronomers, yet it is the best subject to turn to when desirous of an expanded knowledge of the sky. This guide intends to instruct complete newcomers to radio astronomy, and provides help for the first steps on the road towards the study of this fascinating subject. In addition to a history... more...

  • A Panchromatic View of Galaxiesby Alessandro Boselli

    Wiley 2012; US$ 140.00

    Describing how to investigate all kinds of galaxies through a multifrequency analysis, this text is divided into three different sections. The first describes the data currently available at different frequencies, from X-rays to UV, optical, infrared and radio millimetric and centimetric, while explaining their physical meaning. In the second section,... more...

  • 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...

  • Searching for the Long-Duration Gamma-Ray Burst Progenitorby Robert Allan Mesler

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Nominated as an outstanding thesis by the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of New Mexico, this thesis seeks to identify the gamma-ray burst (GRB) progenitor. GRBs are extragalactic explosions that briefly outshine entire galaxies, but the mechanism that can release that much energy over a < 100 second burst is still a mystery.... more...

  • What Are Gamma-Ray Bursts?by Joshua S. Bloom

    Princeton University Press 2011; US$ 30.95

    Gamma-ray bursts are the brightest--and, until recently, among the least understood--cosmic events in the universe. Discovered by chance during the cold war, these evanescent high-energy explosions confounded astronomers for decades. But a rapid series of startling breakthroughs beginning in 1997 revealed that the majority of gamma-ray bursts are... more...

  • Handbookby Pierre Villars; Karin Cenzual

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 293.00

    Since the discovery of X-ray diffraction in 1913 over 100 000 different inorganic substances (also called compounds or phases) have been structurally characterized. The aim of this reference work is to provide the researcher with a comprehensive compilation of all up to now crystallographically identified inorganic substances in only one volume. All... more...
