  • Lessons from the Local Groupby Kenneth Freeman; Bruce Elmegreen; David Block; Matthew Woolway

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 349.00

     Our understanding of galaxy formation comes mostly from two sources: sensitive observations at high angular resolution of the high-redshift Universe, where galaxies are observed to be forming, and detailed observations of individual stars and clouds in the Local Group, where telltale remnants from its formative time remain and similar processes operate... more...

  • Ecology of Blue Straggler Starsby Henri M. J. Boffin; Giovanni Carraro; Giacomo Beccari

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2014; US$ 179.00

    The existence of blue straggler stars, which appear younger, hotter, and more massive than their siblings, is at odds with a simple picture of stellar evolution. Such stars should have exhausted their nuclear fuel and evolved long ago to become cooling white dwarfs. They are found to exist in globular clusters, open clusters, dwarf spheroidal galaxies... more...

  • In the Dust of This Planetby Eugene Thacker

    John Hunt Publishing 2011; US$ 14.99

    The world is increasingly unthinkable, a world of planetary disasters, emerging pandemics, and the looming threat of extinction. In this book Eugene Thacker suggests that we look to the genre of horror as offering a way of thinking about the unthinkable world. To confront this idea is to confront the limit of our ability to understand the world in... more...

  • An Introduction to Stellar Astrophysicsby Francis LeBlanc

    Wiley 2011; US$ 62.00

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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 51.00

    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...

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

    Springer 2004; US$ 359.00

    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...

  • The Origin Of Starsby Michael D. Smith

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 128.00

    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...
