  • Starburstsby Richard de Grijs; Rosa M. González Delgado

    Springer Netherlands 2006; Not Available

    Starbursts are important features of early galaxy evolution. Many of the distant, high-redshift galaxies we are able to detect are in a starbursting phase, often apparently provoked by a violent gravitational interaction with another galaxy. In fact, if we did not know that major starbursts existed, these conference proceedings testify that we would... more...

  • The Electromagnetic Spectrum of Neutron Starsby Altan Baykal; Sinan K. Yerli; Sitki C. Inam; Sergei Grebenev

    Springer Netherlands 2006; Not Available

    Neutron stars hold a central place in astrophysics, not only because they are made up of the most extreme states of the condensed matter, but also because they are, along with white dwarfs and black holes, one of the stable configurations that stars reach at the end of stellar evolution. Neutron stars posses the highest rotation rates and strongest... more...
