  • Cosmic Explosionsby J.M. Marcaide; Kurt Weiler

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 313.38

    Supernovae are among the most energetic phenomena in the Universe and - lated to almost all aspects of modern astrophysics including starburst gal- ies, cosmic ray acceleration, neutron star and black hole formation, nuc- osynthesis and ISM chemical enrichment, energy input to the ISM, cosmic distance scale determination, dark energy related cosmological... more...

  • New Light on Dark Starsby Neil Reid; Suzanne Hawley

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 157.24

    There has been very considerable progress in research into low-mass stars, brown dwarfs and extrasolar planets during the past few years, particularly since the fist edtion of this book was published in 2000. In this new edtion the authors present a comprehensive review of both the astrophysical nature of individual red dwarf and brown dwarf stars... more...

  • The Black Hole At The Center Of The Milky Wayby Andreas Eckart; Rainer Schödel; Christian Straubmeier

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 116.00 US$ 95.12

    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 US$ 78.72

    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...

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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 209.00 US$ 171.38

    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...

  • Rotation And Accretion Powered Pulsarsby Pranab Ghosh

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2007; US$ 222.00 US$ 182.04

    This book is an introduction to pulsars, a key area in high energy astrophysics with continuing potential for fundamental discoveries. Throughout the book runs the unifying thread of the evolutionary link between rotation-powered pulsars and accretion-powered pulsars — a milestone of modern astrophysics. Early textbooks on pulsars dealt almost... more...

  • The Edge of Infinityby Fulvio Melia

    Cambridge University Press 2003; US$ 68.00 US$ 55.76

    Answers to some of the most intriguing questions now being asked about black holes. more...
