  • Sources and Detection of Dark Matter and Dark Energy in the Universeby David Cline

    Springer 2013; US$ 199.00

    These proceedings provide the latest results on dark matter and dark energy research. The UCLA Department of Physics and Astronomy hosted its tenth Dark Matter and Dark Energy conference in Marina del Rey and brought together all the leaders in the field. The symposium provided a scientific forum for the latest discussions in the field. Topics... more...

  • Physics of the Interstellar and Intergalactic Mediumby Bruce T. Draine

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 75.00

    This is a comprehensive and richly illustrated textbook on the astrophysics of the interstellar and intergalactic medium--the gas and dust, as well as the electromagnetic radiation, cosmic rays, and magnetic and gravitational fields, present between the stars in a galaxy and also between galaxies themselves. Topics include radiative processes across... more...

  • Dust In The Universeby K. S. Krishna Swamy

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 163.00

    The study of dust in the universe is an exciting area in current astronomy. Dust formed during an earlier epoch could be different from that formed at a later time, but the nature and composition of dust is not presently understood in its entirety. The comprehensive study presented in this book provides a much needed critical analysis of different... more...

  • Stardust From Meteoritesby Maria Lugaro

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 107.00

    The study of presolar meteoritic grains is a new inter-disciplinary field that brings together topics from nuclear physics to astronomy and chemistry. Traditionally, most of the information about the cosmos has been gathered by observing light through telescopes. However, with the recent discovery that some dust grains extracted from primitive meteorites... more...

  • Physics of Cometsby K.S. Krishna Swamy

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 165.00

    This revised edition places a unique emphasis on all the new results from ground-based, satellites and space missions - detection of molecule H2 and prompt emission lines of OH for the first time; discovery of X-rays in comets; observed diversity in chemical composition among comets; the puzzle of the constancy of spin temperature; the well-established... more...

  • Meteorites, Ice, and Antarcticaby William A. Cassidy

    Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 32.00

    A fascinating first-hand account of scientific expeditions in Antarctica, first published in 2003. more...

  • High-Velocity Cloudsby H. van Woerden

    Springer 2004; US$ 269.00

    This book contains 17 chapters reviewing our knowledge of the high-velocity clouds (HVCs) as of 2004, bringing this together in one place for the first time. Each of the many different aspects of HVC research is addressed by one of the experts in that subfield. These include a historical overview of HVC research and analyses of the structure and kinematics... more...

  • Dense Molecular Gas Around Protostars and in Galactic Nucleiby W.A. Baan; Y. Hagiwara; H.J. Langevelde

    Springer 2005; US$ 179.00

    The phenomena observed in young stellar objects (YSO), circumstellar regions and extra-galactic nuclei show some similarity in their morphology, dynamical and physical processes, though they may differ in scale and energy. The European Workshop on Astronomical Molecules 2004 gave astronomers a unique opportunity to discuss the links among the observational... more...

  • Dark Sky, Dark Matterby J.M Overduin; P.S Wesson

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 231.00

    Olbers' paradox states that given the Universe is unbounded, governed by the standard laws of physics, and populated by light sources, the night sky should be ablaze with light. Obviously this is not so. However, the paradox does not lie in nature but in our understanding of physics. A Universe with a finite age, such as follows from big-bang theory,... more...

  • The Mystery of the Tunguska Fireballby Surendra Verma

    Icon Books 2005; US$ 10.19

    On 30 June 1908 a mysterious fireball exploded in the Siberian sky and flattened 2,000 square kilometres of the remote Tunguska forest. As no crater and no material from outer space were ever found, a meteorite could not have caused the Tunguska explosion. So what did?  This 'grand dame of science mysteries' soon turns 100 but continues to seduce... more...
