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

    Taylor and Francis 2001; 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...

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

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 64.00

    Revised second edition for advanced undergraduate students in astronomy and astrophysics. more...

  • Galaxy Formation and Evolutionby Hyron Spinrad

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 209.00

    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...

  • Planetary Nebulae Beyond the Milky Wayby L. Stanghellini; J.R. Walsh; N.G. Douglas

    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...

  • Groups of Galaxies in the Nearby Universeby Ivo Saviane; Valentin D. Ivanov; Jordanka Borissova

    Springer 2007; US$ 119.00

    For every galaxy in the field or in clusters, there are about three galaxies in groups. The Milky Way itself resides in a group, and groups can be found at high redshift. This book aims to offer us the chance to study galaxies in environments characterized by strong interactions. It summarizes various aspects of research on groups of galaxies. 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...

  • The Emission-Line Universeby Jordi Cepa

    Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 41.00

    A valuable 2008 reference on emission lines and the astrophysical objects that produce them, for researchers and graduate students. more...

  • Globular Clustersby Tom Richtler; Søren Larsen

    Springer 2008; US$ 139.00

    The principal question of whether and how globular clusters can contribute to a better understanding of galaxy formation and evolution is perhaps the main driving force behind the overall endeavour of studying globular cluster systems. This work covers the scientific knowledge of the field. more...
