  • The Formation and Early Evolution of Starsby Norbert S. Schulz

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 149.00

    This book details complex physical processes involved in the creation and early evolution of stars. It illustrates how these processes reveal themselves from radio wavelengths to high energy X-rays and gamma?rays, with reference towards high energy signatures. more...

  • Gravitational Collapse and Spacetime Singularitiesby Pankaj S. Joshi

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 52.00

    This 2007 book examines gravitational collapse for graduate students and researchers in gravitation physics, fundamental physics, astrophysics, and cosmology. more...

  • High Energy Radiation from Black Holesby Charles D. Dermer; Govind Menon

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 102.00

    Bright gamma-ray flares observed from sources far beyond our Milky Way Galaxy are best explained if enormous amounts of energy are liberated by black holes. The highest- energy particles in nature--the ultra-high-energy cosmic rays--cannot be confined by the Milky Way's magnetic field, and must originate from sources outside our Galaxy. Understanding... more...

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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 14.00

    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...

  • Joint Evolution of Black Holes and Galaxiesby M. Colpi; V. Gorini; F. Haardt; U. Moschella

    CRC Press 2006; US$ 220.00

    Black holes are among the most mysterious objects that the human mind has been capable of imagining. As pure mathematical constructions, they are tools for exploiting the fundamental laws of physics. As astronomical sources, they are part of our cosmic landscape, warping space-time, coupled to the large-scale properties and life cycle of their host... more...

  • Modeling Black Hole Evaporationby Alessandro Fabbri

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 90.00

    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...

  • New Light on Dark Starsby Neil Reid; Suzanne Hawley

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 219.00

    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...

  • 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...

  • On the Pulsarby B. B. Kadomtsev; A. Nomerotsky

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 21.00

    This book serves as a good introduction to the physics of pulsars by explaining the subject matter in simple terms which are understandable to both undergraduate physics students and also the general public. On the Pulsar links together ideas about physics, informatics and biology, and contains many original examples, problems and solutions. It starts... more...

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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 196.00

    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...
