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

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 119.00

    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...

  • Black Hole Astrophysicsby David L. Meier

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2009; US$ 189.00

    This book begins by reviewing quasars, microquasars, and gamma-ray bursts and shows why black holes are responsible for them. It describes simple, isolated black holes, adding rotation, accretion, radiation and magnetic fields, to show how these objects work. more...

  • Suzaku Studies of White Dwarf Stars and the Galactic X-ray Background Emissionby Takayuki Yuasa

    Springer 2012; US$ 139.00

    This thesis presents a study of the origin of an apparently extended X-ray emission associated with the Galactic ridge. The study was carried out with broadband spectra obtained from mapping observations in the Galactic bulge region conducted in 2005–2010 by the Suzaku space X-ray observatory. The spectra were analyzed with a newly constructed... more...

  • Black Hole Astrophysics 2002by Hyun Kyu Lee

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2002; US$ 211.00

    This book consists of about 20 lectures on theoretical and observational aspects of astrophysical black holes, by experts in the field. The basic principles and astrophysical applications of the black hole magnetosphere and the Blandford–Znajek process are reviewed in detail, as well as accretion by black holes, black hole X-Ray binaries, black... more...

  • Extreme Explosionsby David S. Stevenson

    Springer New York 2013; US$ 39.99

    This book examines and explains cataclysmic and unusual events at the very frontier of our knowledge of stellar astrophysics, and presents them in a way that non-professionals can understand and enjoy. 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...

  • Quantum Black Holesby Xavier Calmet; Bernard Carr; Elizabeth Winstanley

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 54.99

    Written by foremost experts, this short book gives a clear description of the physics of quantum black holes. The reader will learn about quantum black holes in four and higher dimensions, primordial black holes, the production of black holes in high energy particle collisions, Hawking radiation, black holes in models of low scale quantum gravity... more...

  • 50 Years of Brown Dwarfsby

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 129.00

    The years 2012/2013 mark the 50th anniversary of the theoretical prediction that Brown Dwarfs, i.e. degenerate objects which are just not massive enough to sustain stable hydrogen fusion, exist. Some 20 years after their discovery, how Brown Dwarfs form is still one of the main open questions in the theory of star formation. In this volume, the pioneers... more...

  • White Dwarf Atmospheres and Circumstellar Environmentsby Donald W. Hoard

    Wiley 2012; US$ 160.00

    Written by selected astronomers at the forefront of their fields, this timely and novel book compiles the latest results from research on white dwarf stars, complementing existing literature by focusing on fascinating new developments in our understanding of the atmospheric and circumstellar environments of these stellar remnants. Complete with a thorough... more...

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

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2009; US$ 36.00

    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...
