Astronomy Observations

  • Nuclear Physics of Starsby Christian Iliadis

    Wiley 2015; US$ 103.95

    Most elements are synthesized, or "cooked", by thermonuclear reactions in stars. The newly formed elements are released into the interstellar medium during a star's lifetime, and are subsequently incorporated into a new generation of stars, into the planets that form around the stars, and into the life forms that originate on the planets. Moreover,... more...

  • The Invisible Universeby Gerrit Verschuur

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 29.99

    Hidden from human view, accessible only to sensitive receivers attached to huge radio telescopes, the invisible universe beyond our senses continues to fascinate and intrigue our imaginations. Closer to home, 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... more...

  • Giants of Eclipse: The ? Aurigae Stars and Other Binary Systemsby Thomas B. Ake; Elizabeth Griffin

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    The zeta Aurigae stars are the rare but illustrious sub-group of binary stars that undergo the dramatic phenomenon of "chromospheric eclipse". This book provides detailed descriptions of the ten known systems, illustrates them richly with examples of new spectra, and places them in the context of stellar structure and evolution. Comprised of a large... more...

  • Das Leben der Sterneby Matthias Heyssler

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2014; US$ 9.99

    Das Essential beschreibt die Entwicklung der Sterne aus den interstellaren Wolken. Nach einer Zusammenfassung der wichtigsten Zustandsgrößen und ihrer physikalischen Zusammenhänge präsentiert der Autor die Grundlage der Dynamik interstellarer Wolken. Er formuliert Bedingungen, die zur Bildung der Vorstufen unserer Sterne, der sogenannten Protosterne,... more...

  • Solar Prominencesby Jean-Claude Vial; Oddbjorn Engvold

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    This volume presents the latest research results on solar prominences, including new developments on e.g. chirality, fine structure, magnetism, diagnostic tools and relevant solar plasma physics. In 1875 solar prominences, as seen out of the solar limb, were described by P.A. Secchi in his book Le Soleil as "gigantic pink or peach-flower coloured... more...

  • Infrared Astronomy ? Seeing the Heatby David L. Clements

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 49.95

    Uncover the Secrets of the Universe Hidden at Wavelengths beyond Our Optical Gaze William Herschel?s discovery of infrared light in 1800 led to the development of astronomy at wavelengths other than the optical. Infrared Astronomy ? Seeing the Heat: from William Herschel to the Herschel Space Observatory explores the work in astronomy that... more...

  • Planet Mercuryby David A. Rothery

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 89.99

    A new and detailed picture of Mercury is emerging thanks to NASA?s MESSENGER mission that spent four years in orbit about the Sun?s innermost planet. Comprehensively illustrated by close-up images and other data, the author describes Mercury?s landscapes from a geological perspective: from sublimation hollows, to volcanic vents, to lava plains, to... more...

  • The Earliest Stages of Massive Clustered Star Formation: Fragmentation of Infrared Dark Cloudsby Ke Wang

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2014; US$ 129.00

    This thesis presents an in-depth, high-resolution observational study on the very beginning of the formation process: the fragmentation of dense molecular clouds known as infrared dark clouds (IRDCs). Using the Submillimeter Array (SMA) and Very Large Array (VLA) radio interferometers, the author has discovered a common picture of hierarchical fragmentation... more...
