  • 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...

  • A Panchromatic View of Galaxiesby Alessandro Boselli

    Wiley 2012; US$ 145.00

    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 Gamma-Ray Astronomyby T.C. Weekes

    CRC Press 2003; 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 Invisible Universeby Gerrit Verschuur

    Springer New York 2007; US$ 32.95

    Hidden from human view, accessible only to sensitive receivers attached to huge radio telescopes, the invisible universe beyond our senses continues to fascinate us. In the Milky Way galaxy, radio astronomers listen patiently to the ticking of pulsars that tell of star death and states of matter of awesome densities. This is the story of radio astronomy,... more...

  • Fundamental Questions in Astrophysics: Guidelines for Future UV Observatoriesby Ana I. Gómez de Castro; Willem Wamsteker
