  • Dark Matter in Astro- and Particle Physicsby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 99.00

    The Fourth HEIDELBERG International Conference on Dark Matter in Astro­ and Particle Physics, DARK2002, was held in Cape Town, South Africa, in the period 4-9 February 2002. This majestic natural area was the site of the first conference of this series (hosted since 1996 in Heidelberg) to be held outside of Germany. Dark Matter has become one of the... more...

  • Comet/Asteroid Impacts and Human Societyby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 219.00

    In 1908 an atmospheric explosion in northern Siberia released energy equivalent to 15 Mton of TNT. Can a comparable or larger NEO affect us again? When the next NEO strikes Earth will it be large enough to destroy a city? Will the climate change significantly? Can archaeology and anthropology provide insights into the expected cultural responses with... more...

  • Catalogue of Meteorites from South Americaby Rogelio Daniel Acevedo; Maximiliano C.L. Rocca; Víctor Manuel García

    Springer 2013; US$ 54.99

    The first Catalogue of Meteorites from South America includes new specimens never previously reported, while doubtful cases and pseudometeorites have been deliberately omitted.The falling of these objects is a random event, but the sites where old meteorites are found tend to be focused in certain areas, e.g. in the deflation surfaces in Chile?s Atacama... more...

  • Origin and Early Evolution of Comet Nucleiby K. Altwegg; W. Huebner

    Springer 2008; US$ 269.00

    Comet nuclei are the most primitive bodies in the solar system. This book brings together representatives of several scientific communities in the fields of interstellar clouds, star-forming regions, the solar nebula, and comets. It is suitable for researchers and graduate students working in the field of planetology and solar system exploration. more...

  • The Identification of Dark Matterby Minos Axenides; George Fanourakis; John Vergados

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 320.00

    This volume is the latest in a prominent biannual series of scientific meetings on the exciting research topics of dark matter and, more recently, of dark energy. It contains a state-of-the-art update on detection efforts by experimental groups around the world trying to pin down exotic new forms of matter under the names of axions, neutralinos, wimps,... more...

  • Dense Molecular Gas around Protostars and in Galactic Nucleiby Willem A. Baan; Huib Jan van Langevelde

    Springer Netherlands 2005; US$ 179.00

    Covers maser and dense gas diagnostics and related phenomena, evolution of circumstellar regions around protostars, evolution of circumnuclear regions of active galaxies, diagnostics of the circumnuclear gas in stars and galactic nuclei Summarizes our present knowledge in these topics, highlights major problems to be addressed, and finally proposes... more...

  • Dark Matter In The Universeby John Bahcall; Tsvi Piran; Steven Weinberg

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 189.00

    If standard gravitational theory is correct, then most of the matter in the universe is in an unidentified form which does not emit enough light to have been detected by current instrumentation. This book is the second editon of the lectures given at the 4th Jerusalem Winter School for Theoretical Physics, with new material added. The lectures are... more...

  • Matter, Anti-Matter and Dark Matterby Roberto Battiston; Bruna Bertucci

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 176.00

    This book presents the progress in cosmic ray physics following the recent results obtained by balloon, satellite and underground experiments.

  • Australia's Meteorite Cratersby Alex Bevan; Peter Murray

    Western Australian Museum 2013; US$ 9.95

    On Earth, catastrophic impact of an asteroid or comet with truly global consequences has not happened during our written history, and the threat seems very small. Giant scars on our planet’s surface are relics of an impact history stretching back more than 2 billion years, and there is no assurance it cannot happen again. In Australia there are... more...
