  • How does the Galaxy Work?by Emilio J. Alfaro

    Springer 2004; US$ 299.00

    This volume presents a multi-disciplinary approach to the physical mechanisms which structure the shape, evolution and fate of the Galaxy. It contains 4 panel sessions (the recording transcripts of the galactic 'tertulias'), an introductory historical overview on the Galaxy research, 17 reviews, and the proceedings of more than 50 oral and poster contributions. ... more...

  • Statistics of the Galaxy Distributionby Vicent J. Martinez; Enn Saar

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 164.95

    Over the last decade, statisticians have developed new statistical tools in the field of spatial point processes. At the same time, observational efforts have yielded a huge amount of new cosmological data to analyze. Although the main tools in astronomy for comparing theoretical results with observation are statistical, in recent years, cosmologists... more...

  • Multiwavelength Agn Surveys - Proceedings Of The Guillermo Haro Conference 2003by Raúl Mújica; Roberto Maiolino

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 307.00

    The huge amount of data obtained by surveys in all wavebands, from radio to X-rays, has allowed major progress in the understanding of Active Galactic Nuclei and of their cosmic evolution. This book contains the proceedings of a conference intended to give a broad overview of the recent results obtained by recent AGN surveys over the whole electromagnetic... more...

  • Active Galactic Nucleiby R.D. Blandford; H. Netzer; L. Woltjer

    Springer 2006; US$ 49.95

    Starting with this volume, the Lecture Notes of the renowned Advanced Courses of the Swiss Society for Astrophysics and Astronomy will be published annually. In each course, three extensive lectures given by leading experts in their respective fields cover different and essential aspects of the subject. The 20th course, held at Les Diablerets in April... more...

  • Galaxy Formation and Evolutionby Hyron Spinrad

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 179.00

    Discusses the evolution of galaxies, emphasising the boundaries of our knowledge about the most distant galaxies, but demonstrating how it is possible to make comparisons between nearby galaxies and the most distant current observed. This book also reviews galaxy morphology and its likely history. more...

  • Galaxies in the Universeby Linda S. Sparke; John S. III Gallagher

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 64.00

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 99.00

    Planetary nebulae (PNe) are found in galaxies of all types and also between the galaxies in nearby galaxy clusters. This book contains the proceedings of a workshop held at ESO headquarters in Garching in 2004, devoted entirely to Extra-galactic Planetary Nebulae. more...

  • Galaxies and How to Observe Themby Wolfgang Steinicke; Richard Jakiel

    Springer 2007; US$ 32.95

    A comprehensive review of major aspects of galaxy observation. This book combines the physical background on the nature and data of galaxies, the relevant instrumentation and viewing techniques, and finally, the targets and their individual appearance in telescopes of various apertures. more...

  • Nebulae and How to Observe Themby Steven Coe

    Springer 2007; US$ 32.95

    Nebulae are the places where the stars are born. This book aims to present a description and categorization; and then to consider how best to successfully observe and record the large range of astronomical objects that fall under the general heading of "nebulae". It is useful for various levels of amateur observers. more...

  • Clusters of Galaxiesby Jelle Kaastra

    Springer 2008; US$ 209.00

    This book presents a review on the physics of clusters of galaxies beyond the standard thermal view. The book first gives a general introduction to clusters of galaxies. It discusses the properties of the hot, virialised gas in these clusters. But the main focus is on what is beyond this thermal gas: the surrounding warm-hot intergalactic medium, non-thermal... more...
