  • 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...

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

    Springer London 2007; US$ 32.95

    This book is a unique work satisfying the need for a modern, comprehensive review of all major aspects of galaxy observation. The 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...

  • Galaxies in Turmoilby C. R. Kitchin

    Springer London 2007; US$ 39.95

    The new Astronomers' Universe Series is aimed at the same readership as the Practical Astronomy Series - active amateur astronomers. This book provides an up-to-date account of active galaxies which are a major field of current astronomical research - up to a fifth of all research astronomers are working on active galaxies. Lists of such objects and... more...

  • Clusters of Galaxies: Beyond the Thermal Viewby

    Springer New York 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...

  • 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...

  • The Emission-Line Universeby Jordi Cepa

    Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 48.00

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

  • Shrouds of the Nightby David L. Block; Kenneth Freeman

    Springer New York 2009; US$ 39.95

    ??Shrouds of the night? sounds like the title for some supernatural mystery. But when you open up David Block and Kenneth Freeman's big new book you find... Well, a supernatural mystery. [?] Not another photo compilation - but a history, a celebration, and a score or more of quite luminous speculations. It?s a look far out in space, and back in time,... 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...

  • Nucleosynthesis and Chemical Evolution of Galaxiesby Bernard E. J. Pagel

    Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 92.00

    A lucid introduction for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, and an authoritative overview for researchers and professional scientists. more...

  • High-Redshift Galaxiesby Immo Appenzeller

    Springer 2009; US$ 139.00

    Presents a comprehensive account of the scientific results on high-redshift galaxies. Summarizing the observational data, this book describes the observational methods which made it possible to study these very distant and extremely faint objects. It is suitable for students interested in extragalactic astronomy. more...
