  • Pulsating Starsby Márcio Catelan; Horace A. Smith

    Wiley 2015; US$ 120.95

    This book surveys our understanding of stars which change in brightness because they pulsate. Pulsating variable stars are keys to distance scales inside and beyond the Milky Way galaxy. They test our understanding not only of stellar pulsation theory but also of stellar structure and evolution theory. Moreover, pulsating stars are important probes... more...

  • Thermal Convection, Magnetic Field, and Differential Rotation in Solar-type Starsby Hideyuki Hotta

    Springer Japan 2015; US$ 129.00

    This thesis describes the studies on the solar interior where turbulent thermal convection plays an important role. The author solved, for the first time, one of the long-standing issues in solar physics, i.e., the maintenance mechanism of the solar differential rotation in the near-surface shear layer. The author attacked this problem with a newly... 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...

  • 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...

  • Galactic and Intergalactic Magnetic Fieldsby Ulrich Klein; Andrew Fletcher

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    This course-tested textbook conveys the fundamentals of magnetic fields and relativistic plasma in diffuse cosmic media, with a primary focus on phenomena that have been observed at different wavelengths. Theoretical concepts are addressed wherever necessary, with derivations presented in sufficient detail to be generally accessible. In the first few... more...

  • Characterizing Stellar and Exoplanetary Environmentsby Helmut Lammer; Maxim Khodachenko

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 179.00

    In this book an international group of specialists discusses studies of exoplanets subjected to extreme stellar radiation and plasma conditions. It is shown that such studies will help us to understand how terrestrial planets and their atmospheres, including the early Venus, Earth and Mars, evolved during the host star?s active early phase. The book... more...

  • Galaxyby James Geach

    Reaktion Books 2014; US$ 35.00

    Each night, we are able to gaze up at the night sky and look at the thousands of stars that stretch to the end of our individual horizons. But the stars we see are only those that make up our own Milky Way galaxy?but one of hundreds of billions in the whole of the universe, each separated  by inconceivably huge tracts of empty space. In this... more...

  • What Does a Black Hole Look Like?by Charles D. Bailyn

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 35.00

    Emitting no radiation or any other kind of information, black holes mark the edge of the universe--both physically and in our scientific understanding. Yet astronomers have found clear evidence for the existence of black holes, employing the same tools and techniques used to explore other celestial objects. In this sophisticated introduction, leading... more...

  • Numerical Simulation of Viscous Shocked Accretion Flows Around Black Holesby Kinsuk Giri

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    The work developed in this thesis addresses very important and relevant issues of accretion processes around black holes. Beginning by studying the time variation of the evolution of inviscid accretion discs around black holes and their properties, the author investigates the change of the pattern of the flows when the strength of the shear viscosity... more...

  • Probing Galaxy Evolution by Unveiling the Structure of Massive Galaxies Across Cosmic Time and in Diverse Environmentsby Tim Weinzirl

    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    Awarded the American Astronomical Society (AAS) Rodger Doxsey Travel Prize, and with a foreword by thesis supervisor Professor Shardha Jogee at the University of Texas at Austin, this thesis discusses one of the primary outstanding problems in extragalactic astronomy: how galaxies form and evolve. Galaxies consist of two fundamental kinds of structure:... more...
