  • The Black Hole At The Center Of The Milky Wayby Andreas Eckart; Rainer Sch÷del; Christian Straubmeier

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 116.00

    Reviewing the fundamental instrumental techniques and current observational results, this book unveils the mysteries of the physical processes in the central parsec of our Milky Way: the super-massive black hole embedded in a central stellar cluster as well as the gas and dust in the circumnuclear region. The observations described cover the entire... more...

  • Modeling Black Hole Evaporationby Alessandro Fabbri

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 96.00

    The scope of this book is two-fold: the first part gives a fully detailed and pedagogical presentation of the Hawking effect and its physical implications, and the second discusses the backreaction problem, especially in connection with exactly solvable semiclassical models that describe analytically the black hole evaporation process. The book aims... more...

  • Multiwavelength Agn Surveys - Proceedings Of The Guillermo Haro Conference 2003by Ra˙l M˙jica; Roberto Maiolino

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 189.00

  • Open Issues In Core Collapse Supernova Theoryby Anthony Mezzacappa; George M Fuller

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 209.00

    Efforts to uncover the explosion mechanism of core collapse supernovae and to understand all of their associated phenomena have been ongoing for nearly four decades. Despite this, our theoretical understanding of these cosmic events remains limited; two- and three-dimensional modeling of these events is in its infancy. Most of the modeling efforts... more...
