  • 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...

  • 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...

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

    Springer 2010; US$ 189.00

    Radio telescopes as well as communication antennas operate under the influence of gravity, temperature and wind. Among those, temperature influences may degrade the performance of a radio telescope through transient changes of the focus, pointing, path length and sensitivity, often in an unpredictable way. Thermal Design and Thermal Behaviour of Radio... 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...

  • Handbookby Pierre Villars; Karin Cenzual

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 280.00

    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...
