  • Unmasking Europaby Richard Greenberg

    Springer 2008; US$ 27.50

    Jupiter's ice moon Europa is widely regarded as the most likely place to find extraterrestrial life. This book tells the engaging story of Europa, the oceanic moon. It features a large number of stunning images of the ocean moon's surface, clearly displaying the spectacular crack patterns, extensive rifts and ridges, and refrozen pools of exposed... more...

  • Constant-Scale Natural Boundary Mapping to Reveal Global and Cosmic Processesby Pamela Elizabeth Clark; Chuck Clark

    Springer 2013; US$ 49.99

    Whereas conventional maps can be expressed as outward-expanding formulae with well-defined central features and relatively poorly defined edges, Constant Scale Natural Boundary (CSNB) maps have well-defined boundaries that result from natural processes and thus allow spatial and dynamic relationships to be observed in a new way useful to understanding... 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 2013; US$ 39.99

    The beginning astronomical observer passes through a series of stages. The initial stage is hugely exciting and gives the beginner a real buzz as he discovers some of the faint fuzzy objects, markings on the planets, rings around Saturn and the craters on the Moon. But as the novice observer progresses, he or she wants to know what more there is than... more...

  • Nulling Interferometers for Space-based High-Contrast Visible Imaging and Measurement of Exoplanetary Environmentsby Brian Hicks

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    High-contrast astronomical imaging has progressed significantly in the past decade. Many of these techniques have been laboratory demonstrated to perform at contrast levels adequate for the detection of Solar System-like planets and dust around nearby stars. None of them, however, have been demonstrated in space. The state of the art in high-contrast... more...

  • Neutrino Physicsby E. Bellotti; Y. Declais; P. Strolin

    IOS Press 2003; US$ 191.00

    Neutrino physics contributed in an fundamental way to the progress of science, opening important windows of knowledge in elementary particle physics, as well in astrophysics and cosmology. Substantial experimental efforts are presently dedicated to improve our knowledge on neutrino properties as, in fact, we don't know yet some of the basic ones. Although... more...

  • Planetologie extrasolarer Planetenby Mathias Scholz

    Springer 2014; US$ 49.99

    Als im Jahre 1995 die Schweizer Astronomen Michel Mayor und Didier Queloz die Entdeckung des ersten extrasolaren Planeten um einen sonnenahnlichen Stern bekanntgaben, konnte noch niemand ahnen, daß sich daraus in den folgenden knapp zwei Jahrzehnten eine neue, nicht nur in ihrer Entwicklung atemberaubende neue Disziplin der Astronomie entwickeln wurde.... more...
