  • Exploring Ancient Skiesby David H. Kelley; A.F. Aveni; Eugene F. Milone

    Springer New York 2011; US$ 119.00

    Beginning with an overview of the field, this updated edition unites methods of archaeology and the insights of modern astronomy in an exploration of the science of astronomy as it was practiced in a number of cultures prior to the invention of the telescope. more...

  • Fast Spectral Variability in the X-ray Emission of Accreting Black Holesby Chris Skipper

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    This thesis brings together the various techniques of X-ray spectral analysis in order to examine the properties of black holes that vary in mass by several orders of magnitude. In all these systems it is widely accepted that the X-ray emission is produced by Compton up-scattering of lower energy seed photons in a hot corona or accretion flow, and... more...

  • Final Frontierby Brian Clegg

    St. Martin's Press 2014; US$ 27.99

    Star Trek was right ? there is only one final frontier, and that is space... Human beings are natural explorers, and nowhere is this frontier spirit stronger than in the United States of America. It almost defines the character of the US. But the Earth is running out of frontiers fast. In Brian Clegg's The Final Frontier we discover the massive... more...

  • Five-Dimensional Physicsby Paul S. Wesson

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2006; US$ 78.00

    Extra dimensions — beyond space and time — are the best methods for unifying gravity with particle physics. The basic extension is to five dimensions (5D), as in the induced-matter and membrane theory. This descriptive text gives an up-to-date account of the classical and quantum consequences of 5D physics. It includes topics that range... more...

  • From Strange Simplicity to Complex Familiarityby Manfred Eigen

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 224.99

    This book presents a vivid argument for the almost lost idea of a unity of all natural sciences. It starts with the "strange" physics of matter, including particle physics, atomic physics and quantum mechanics, cosmology, relativity and their consequences (Chapter I), and it continues by describing the properties of material systems that... more...

  • Frontiers of Astrobiologyby Chris Impey; Jonathan Lunine; Josť Funes

    Cambridge University Press 2012; US$ 44.00

    Investigating the latest research questions in astrobiology, this volume will fascinate a wide interdisciplinary audience at all levels. more...

  • Galaxiesby John Gribbin

    Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 9.99

    Galaxies are the building blocks of the Universe: standing like islands in space, each is made up of many hundreds of millions of stars in which the chemical elements are made, around which planets form, and where on at least one of those planets intelligent life has emerged. Our own galaxy, the Milky Way, is just one of several hundred million other... more...

  • Gravityby Eric Poisson; Clifford M. Will

    Cambridge University Press 2014; US$ 76.00

    A unique graduate textbook that develops powerful approximation methods and their applications to real-life astrophysical systems. more...

  • Heart of Darknessby Jeremiah P. Ostriker; Simon Mitton

    Princeton University Press 2013; US$ 19.95

    Heart of Darkness describes the incredible saga of humankind's quest to unravel the deepest secrets of the universe. Over the past thirty years, scientists have learned that two little-understood components--dark matter and dark energy--comprise most of the known cosmos, explain the growth of all cosmic structure, and hold the key to the universe's... more...

  • High-Energy Emission from Pulsars and their Systemsby Nanda Rea; Diego F. Torres

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2011; US$ 519.00

    The aim of the inaugural meeting of the Sant Cugat Forum on Astrophysics was to address, in a global context, the current understanding of and challenges in high-energy emissions from isolated and non-isolated neutron stars, and to confront the theoretical picture with observations of both the Fermi satellite and the currently operating ground-based... more...
