  • The Origin Of Starsby Michael D. Smith

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 45.00

    Where do stars come from and how do they form? These are profound questions which link the nature of our Universe to the roots of mankind. Yet, until a recent revolution in understanding, the proposed answers have been raw speculation. Now, accompanying penetrating observations, a new picture has come into prominence. more...

  • An Introduction to Black Holes, Information and the String Theory Revolutionby Leonard Susskind; James Lindesay

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 15.00

    Over the last decade the physics of black holes has been revolutionized by developments that grew out of Jacob Bekenstein's realization that black holes have entropy. Steven Hawking raised profound issues concerning the loss of information in black hole evaporation and the consistency of quantum mechanics in a world with gravity. more...

    Springer Netherlands 2005; US$ 299.00

    An international conference entitled "Zdenek Kopal's Binary Star Legacy" was held on the occasion of the late Professor Kopal's 90th birthday in his home town of Litomy?l/Czech Republic and dedicated to the memory of one of the leading astronomers of the 20th century. Professor Kopal, who devoted 60 years of his scientific life to the exploration... more...

  • Evolution of Stars and Stellar Populationsby Maurizio Salaris; Santi Cassisi

    Wiley 2005; US$ 192.00 US$ 166.40

    Evolution of Stars and Stellar Populations is a comprehensive presentation of the theory of stellar evolution and its application to the study of stellar populations in galaxies. Taking a unique approach to the subject, this self-contained text introduces first the theory of stellar evolution in a clear and accessible manner, with particular emphasis... more...

  • White Dwarfs: Cosmological and Galactic Probesby E. Sion; S. Vennes; H. Shipman

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 189.00

    In the past few years, general astronomical interest has concentrated on s- eral objects and phenomena where white dwarf stars play a key role. T Type Ia supernovae have been used as evidence to show that, in fact, Einstein did not make his greatest blunder when heallowedfor the possibility of a c- mological constant. Improvements in our knowledge... more...

  • Evolutionary Processes in Binary and Multiple Starsby Peter Eggleton

    Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 72.00 US$ 59.04

    This 2006 volume discusses the statistics of binary stars; the evolution of single stars; and interaction between multiple stars. more...

  • Joint Evolution of Black Holes and Galaxiesby M. Colpi; V. Gorini; F. Haardt; U. Moschella

    CRC Press 2006; US$ 220.00

    Black holes are among the most mysterious objects that the human mind has been capable of imagining. As pure mathematical constructions, they are tools for exploiting the fundamental laws of physics. As astronomical sources, they are part of our cosmic landscape, warping space-time, coupled to the large-scale properties and life cycle of their host... more...

  • Observing and Measuring Visual Double Starsby Bob Argyle

    Springer London 2006; US$ 99.00

    Double stars are the rule, rather than the exception: our solar system, having a single sun, is in the minority. Orbiting satellites, ground-based observatories and interferometers have all helped discover many hundreds of new pairs - but this has left enormous numbers of wide, faint pairs under-observed or not observed at all. This is where amateur... more...

  • Star Clustersby L. Labhardt; B.W. Carney; B. Binggeli; W.E. Harris

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 159.00

    Star clusters are at the heart of astronomy, being key objects for our understanding of stellar evolution and galactic structure. Observations with the Hubble Space Telescope and other modern equipment have revealed fascinating new facts about these galactic building blocks. This book provides two comprehensive and up-to-date, pedagogically designed... more...
