  • Eyes on the Skiesby Govert Schilling; Lars Lindberg Christensen

    Wiley 2011; US$ 32.95

    Adopted as the official book of the International Year of Astronomy (IYA) 2009, this stunningly illustrated history of telescopic discovery spans the range from the first telescopes via the Hubble Space Telescope to next generation platforms, and how they have changed and continue to change our view of the universe, our place in it and where it all... more...

  • Challenges In Stellar Pulsationby L. A. Balona

    Bentham Science Publishers 2010; US$ 89.00

    Ever since some stars were found to pulsate in the early 20th century, stellar pulsation has been a major topic in astronomy and astrophysics. The huge amount of data recently available from observational surveys, new discoveries from space missions and studies of pulsating stars in low-metallicity environments have opened new perspectives and challenges.... more...

  • Exoplanetsby Chris Kitchin

    Springer 2011; US$ 29.95

    "Exoplanets: Finding, Exploring, and Understanding Alien Worlds" probes the basis for possible answers to the fundamentals questions asked about these planets orbiting stars other than our Sun. This book examines what such planets might be like, where they are, and how we find them. Until around ten years ago, the only planets that we knew... more...

  • Dark Nebulae, Dark Lanes, and Dust Beltsby Antony Cooke

    Springer 2012; US$ 39.95

    There are 'voids' obscuring all kinds of objects in the cosmos. Voids may be within an object, or between an object and us. Dark Nebulae, Dark Lanes, and Dust Lanes looks out into the deep sky at those apparent dark regions in space, which are among the most compelling telescopic destinations for amateur observers. One famous example is Barnard's... more...

  • The Spiral Galaxy M33by P. Hodge

    Springer 2011; US$ 159.00

    This book summarizes the gathering of information on and the growing understanding of M33 from the 1920s, when Hubble first determined its true nature, to the 21st century, when the Hubble Telescope probed deeply into its many secrets. With its regular symmetrical spiral structure, and its being not tilted too much and near enough to allow detailed... more...

  • Chemical Evolution of Galaxiesby Francesca Matteucci

    Springer 2012; US$ 124.00

    The term "chemical evolution of galaxies" refers to the evolution of abundances of chemical species in galaxies, which is due to nuclear processes occurring in stars and to gas flows into and out of galaxies. This book deals with the chemical evolution of galaxies of all morphological types (ellipticals, spirals and irregulars) and stresses... more...

  • Instrumentation for Large Telescopesby Jose M. Rodriguez Espinosa; Artemio Herrero; Francisco Sánchez

    Cambridge University Press 1997; US$ 146.00

    The first review on the design and use of instrumentation for the new generation of large telescopes that will be used by astronomers well into the next century. more...

  • The Internal Constitution of the Starsby Arthur S. Eddington

    Cambridge University Press 1988; US$ 74.00

    The publication of The Internal Constitution of the Stars by Arthur Eddington in 1926 was a major landmark in the development of modern theoretical astrophysics. Not only did Eddington effectively create the discipline of the structure, constitution, and the evolution of the stars, but he also recognised and established the basic elements of our present... more...

  • Introduction to Stellar Astrophysics: Volume 1, Basic Stellar Observations and Databy Erika Böhm-Vitense

    Cambridge University Press 1989; US$ 56.00

    This textbook introduces basic elements of fundamental astronomy and astrophysics which serve as a foundation for understanding the structure, evolution, and observed properties of stars. The first half of the book explains how stellar motions, distances, luminosities, colours, radii, masses and temperatures are measured or derived. The author then... more...
