Astronomy Observations

  • Searching for the Long-Duration Gamma-Ray Burst Progenitorby Robert Allan Mesler

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Nominated as an outstanding thesis by the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of New Mexico, this thesis seeks to identify the gamma-ray burst (GRB) progenitor. GRBs are extragalactic explosions that briefly outshine entire galaxies, but the mechanism that can release that much energy over a < 100 second burst is still a mystery.... more...

  • Governance von Forschungsnetzwerkenby Regina von Görtz

    Nomos Verlagsgesellschaft 2014; US$ 103.74

    Forschungsnetzwerke gelten als Keimzelle von Innovationen. Sie ermöglichen die Kooperation von Forschenden auch unter Wettbewerbsbedingungen und tragen damit entscheidend zur Produktion von neuartigem Wissen bei. Doch wie kommen Forschungsnetzwerke zustande? Wodurch lassen sie sich beeinflussen? Welchen Governancemechanismen unterliegen sie? Dies sind... more...

  • Science and Spectacleby John Agar

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 175.00

    This book relates the construction of the telescope to the politics and culture of post-war Britain. 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...

  • Geheimnisvoller Kosmosby ; Thomas hrke; Roland Wengenmayr

    Wiley 2014; US$ 26.50

    Wie läuft die Fahndung nach der zweiten Erde? Wie beherrschen Dunkle Energie und Dunkle Materie die Entwicklung des Universums? Dieses Buch ist ein aktueller Reiseführer zu den Grenzen der heutigen Erkenntnis. Alle Beiträge in diesem Buch sind hochaktuell und von Fachleuten aus der Forschung geschrieben. Sie geben den Stand der aktuellen... more...

  • Opacityby Walter F. Huebner; W David Barfield

    Springer 2014; US$ 229.00

    The interaction of radiation with matter is a fundamental process in the universe; in particular, the absorption and scattering of radiation by matter (the opacity) govern the formation, evolution, and structure of stars and planets. But opacity is also important in many terrestrial applications in which radiation is the dominant means of energy transfer,... more...

  • Dynamics of Magnetically Trapped Particlesby Juan G. Roederer; Hui Zhang

    Springer 2013; US$ 129.00

    This book is a new edition of Roederer?s classic Dynamics of Geomagnetically Trapped Radiation, updated and considerably expanded. The main objective is to describe the dynamic properties of magnetically trapped particles in planetary radiation belts and plasmas and explain the physical processes involved from the theoretical point of view. The approach... more...

  • Observing Photons in Spaceby Martin C. E. Huber; Anuschka Pauluhn; J. Len Culhane; J. Gethyn Timothy; Klaus Wilhelm; Alex Zehnder

    Springer 2013; US$ 279.00

    An ideal resource for lecturers, this book provides a comprehensive review of experimental space astronomy. The number of astronomers whose knowledge and interest is concentrated on interpreting observations has grown substantially in the past decades; yet, the number of scientists who are familiar with and capable of dealing with instrumentation has... more...

  • Neutrino Huntersby Ray Jayawardhana

    HarperCollins Canada 2013; US$ 23.99

    Every second of every day and night, many trillions of neutrinos pass through your body. But most people had never heard of them until they made headlines recently for possibly travelling faster than light. Luckily, these ghostly particles—celebrated in a delightful John Updike poem and (falsely) blamed for heating the Earth?s core in the Hollywood... more...

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

    Wiley 2013; US$ 165.00

    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...
