  • Collisionless Plasmas in Astrophysicsby Gé Belmont; rard; Roland Grappin; Fabrice Mottez; Filippo Pantellini; Guy Pelletier

    Wiley 2013; US$ 150.00 US$ 130.00

    Collisionless Plasmas in Astrophysics examines the unique properties of media without collisions in plasma physics. Experts in this field, the authors present the first book to concentrate on collisionless conditions in plasmas, whether close or not to thermal equilibrium. Filling a void in scientific literature, Collisionless Plasmas in Astrophysics... more...

  • Den Mond neu entdeckenby Eckart Kuphal

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 21.24

    Der Autor liefert eine detaillierte Geschichte der Mondbeobachtung und der Erforschung des Mondes: von seinen speziellen Eigenschaften im Vergleich zu anderen Monden über seinen irdischen Einfluss bis hin zur zukünftigen Entwicklung des Erde-Mond-Systems. more...

  • Magnetic Processes in Astrophysicsby ; Gü diger; nther; Rainer Hollerbach; Leonid L. Kitchatinov

    Wiley 2013; US$ 176.00 US$ 152.53

    In this work the authors draw upon their expertise in geophysical and astrophysical MHD to explore the motion of electrically conducting fluids, the so-called dynamo effect, and describe the similarities and differences between different magnetized objects. They also explain why magnetic fields are crucial to the formation of the stars, and discuss... more...

  • Plasmas in the Universeby B. Coppi; A. Ferrari; E. Sindoni

    IOS Press 2000; US$ 167.00

    This book illustrates new developments in the fields of space and solar physics, stellar physics, extragalactic physics and cosmology. It also elaborates upon the progress of laboratory plasma physics. One of the topics discussed is the existence of collective processes, both linear and non-linear, that can explain key elements of accretion physics,... more...

  • From Casual Stargazer to Amateur Astronomerby Dave Eagle

    Springer New York 2013; US$ 38.46

    This guide is for budding stargazers who want to develop observing skills beyond mere sightseeing and learn some of the techniques used to carry out enjoyable and scientifically useful observations. Includes useful exercises to help develop observing skills. more...

  • A Galileo Forgeryby Horst Bredekamp; Irene Brückle; Paul Needham

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 0.00

    In this work, historians in various fields revise the results presented in the first two volumes of the series, which analyzed the New York copy of Sidereus Nuncius. While many of their findings remain valid, the subject of analysis proved to be a forgery. Volume III describes how the discovery of forgery was made - a watershed moment... more...

This resource indicates which methods are most suitable for particular problems, demonstrates what the accuracy requirements are in numerical simulations, and suggests... more...

  • Einstein Was Right!by Karl Hess

    Pan Stanford Publishing 2014; US$ 34.95

    All modern books on Einstein emphasize the genius of his relativity theory and the corresponding corrections and extensions of the ancient space?time concept. However, Einstein?s opposition to the use of probability in the laws of nature and particularly in the laws of quantum mechanics is criticized and often portrayed as outdated. The author... more...

  • Opacityby Walter F. Huebner; W David Barfield

    Springer New York 2014; US$ 175.87

    This book covers all aspects of opacity and equations of state for gases, plasmas and dust. The discussion emphasizes the continuous transformation of the equilibrium compositions of these phases as a function of temperature and density. more...
