  • The Universe in X-Raysby Joachim E Trümper; Günther Hasinger

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 123.54

    In the last 45 years, X-ray astronomy has become an integral part of modern astrophysics and cosmology. There is a wide range of astrophysical objects and phenomena, where X-rays provide crucial diagnostics. In particular they are well suited to study hot plasmas and matter under extreme physical conditions in compact objects. This book summarizes... more...

  • The Square Kilometre Array: An Engineering Perspectiveby Peter J. Hall

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 213.40

    The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) Project is a global project to design and c- struct a revolutionary new radio telescope with of order 1 million square meters of collecting area in the wavelength range from3mto1cm.It will have two - ders of magnitude greater sensitivity than current telescopes and an unprecedented large instantaneous ?eld-of-view.... more...

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

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 86.48

    This book reviews recent progress in gamma-ray astrophysics and multi-messenger astronomy. Includes research on the sources of GeV and TeV photons gleaned from measurements made by new instrumentats, new work on detection of dark matter and more. more...

  • Gamma-Ray Burstsby Gilbert Vedrenne; Jean-Luc Atteia

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 179.70

    GRBs remain a subject of fascination for scientists, despite having been known about for 35 years. Both authors have been active in GRB observations for more than two decades, so this is an outstanding account of the history and perspectives of GRB research. more...

  • Measuring the Angular Momentum of Supermassive Black Holesby Laura Brenneman

    Springer New York 2013; US$ 48.29

    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 reviews the... more...

  • Recollections of "Tucson Operations"by Mark Gordon

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 157.24

    This book is a personal account of the evolution of millimeter-wave astronomy at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. It begins with the construction of the hugely successful, but flawed, 36 ft radio telescope on Kitt Peak, Arizona, and continues through the funding of its ultimate successor, the Atacama Large Millimeter-wave Array (ALMA), being... more...

  • Thermal Design and Thermal Behaviour of Radio Telescopes and their Enclosuresby Albert Greve; Michael Bremer

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 213.40

    This book reviews the design and construction principles of radio telescopes in view of thermal aspects and heat transfer with the variable thermal environment. It is the first English language book to present and review this subject matter. more...

  • Cosmic Gamma-Ray Sourcesby Ka Lok Cheng; Gustavo E. Romero

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 213.40

    Gamma-ray astronomy has undergone an enormous progress in the last 15 years. The success of satellite experiments like NASA's Comp­ ton Gamma-Ray Observatory and ESA's INTEGRAL mission, as well as of ground-based instruments have open new views into the high-energy Universe. Different classes of cosmic gamma-ray sources have been now detected at different... more...

  • Handbookby Pierre Villars; Karin Cenzual

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 257.22

    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... more...

  • Black Holes: Thermodynamics, Information, and Firewallsby Robert B. Mann

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 48.29

    This book reflects the resurgence of interest in the quantum properties of black holes, culminating most recently in controversial discussions about firewalls. On the thermodynamic side, it describes how new developments allowed the inclusion of pressure/volume terms in the first law, leading to a new understanding of black holes as chemical systems,... more...
