    This text contains two surveys. One concerns knowledge of the relative and absolute ages of globular clusters and probes of the galaxy's chronology. The other is on globular cluster systems as subpopulations of one galaxy's stars. more...

  • Heating versus Cooling in Galaxies and Clusters of Galaxiesby Hans Böhringer; Gabriel W. Pratt; Alexis Finoguenov; Peter Schuecker

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 139.00

    The Universe would be a dull and dark place if the gaseous baryons did not cool, collapse, and form stars and galaxies. However, if this gas is allowed to cool unimpeded at the rate predicted from known atomic physics, in the context of a well-established cosmological model, the gaseous matter would form stars and galaxies with a high e?ciency, so... more...

  • Mass-Transfer Induced Activity in Galaxiesby Isaac Shlosman

    Cambridge University Press 1994; US$ 104.00

    How gas flows and starbursts light up active galaxies. more...

  • In the Dust of This Planetby Eugene Thacker

    John Hunt Publishing 2011; US$ 14.99

    The world is increasingly unthinkable, a world of planetary disasters, emerging pandemics, and the looming threat of extinction. In this book Eugene Thacker suggests that we look to the genre of horror as offering a way of thinking about the unthinkable world. To confront this idea is to confront the limit of our ability to understand the world in... more...

  • Dwarf Galaxies: Keys to Galaxy Formation and Evolutionby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 299.00

    Dwarf galaxy research constitutes an extremely vibrant field of astrophysical research, with many long-standing questions still unsettled and new ones constantly arising.

  • Old Stellar Populationsby Santi Cassisi; Maurizio Salaris

    Wiley 2013; US$ 97.95

    The book discusses the theoretical path to decoding the information gathered from observations of old stellar systems.
