  • Multi-scale Dynamical Processes in Space and Astrophysical Plasmasby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 199.00

    Magnetized plasmas in the universe exhibit complex dynamical behavior over a huge range of scales. The fundamental mechanisms of energy transport, redistribution and conversion occur at multiple scales. The driving mechanisms often include energy accumulation, free-energy-excited relaxation processes, dissipation and self-organization. The plasma processes... more...

  • The Science of Solar System Icesby

    Springer New York 2012; US$ 229.00

    The role of laboratory research and simulations in advancing our understanding of solar system ices (including satellites, KBOs, comets, and giant planets) is becoming increasingly important. Understanding ice surface radiation processing, particle and radiation penetration depths, surface and subsurface chemistry, morphology, phases, density, conductivity,... more...

  • Principles and Perspectives in Cosmochemistryby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 399.00

    A fundamental question in contemporary astrophysics is the origin of the elements. Cosmochemistry seeks to answer when, how and where the chemical elements arose. Quantitative answers to these fundamental questions require a multi-disciplinary approach involving stellar evolution, explosive nucleosynthesis and nuclear reactions in different astrophysical... more...
