  • Extreme Explosionsby David S. Stevenson

    Springer 2013; US$ 39.99

    What happens at the end of the life of massive stars? At one time we thought all these stars followed similar evolutionary paths.

It features highly significant observational... more...

  • The Physics of Galaxy Formationby Claudia Del P. Lagos

    Springer 2013; US$ 179.00

    This thesis addresses two of the central processes which underpin the formation of galaxies: the formation of stars and the injection of energy into the interstellar medium from supernovae, called feedback. In her work Claudia Lagos has completely overhauled the treatment of these processes in simulations of galaxy formation. Her thesis makes two major... 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...
