  • Glaciovolcanism on Earth and Marsby John L. Smellie; Benjamin R. Edwards

    Cambridge University Press 2016; US$ 112.00

    Presents the distinctive processes and characteristics of glaciovolcanic eruptions, with reference to terrestrial and Mars occurrences. more...

  • Gravitation, Inertia and Weightlessnessby V.I. Ferronsky

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This work discusses the problem of physical meaning of the three main dynamical properties of matter motion, namely gravitation, inertia and weightlessness. It considers that Newtonian gravitation and Galileo?s inertia are the centrifugal effects of interaction energy of a self-gravitating n-body system and its potential field. A self-gravitating... more...

  • Imaging Sunlight Using a Digital Spectroheliographby Ken M. Harrison

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 34.99

    Ken M. Harrison's latest book is a complete guide for amateur astronomers who want to obtain detailed narrowband images of the Sun using a digital spectroheliograph (SHG). The SHG allows the safe imaging of the Sun without the expense of commercial ?etalon? solar filters. As the supporting software continues to be refined, the use of the digital spectroheliograph... more...

  • A Far-Infrared Spectro-Spatial Space Interferometerby Roser Juanola-Parramon

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This thesis describes the physics and computational aspects of an end-to-end simulator to predict the performance of a Space-based Far Infrared Interferometer. The present thesis also includes, the science capabilities and instrumental state-of-the art. The latter is the ambitious next step which the Far-Infrared Astrophysical community needs to take... more...

  • The Universe of Digital Sky Surveysby Nicola R. Napolitano; Giuseppe Longo; Marcella Marconi; Maurizio Paolillo; Enrichetta Iodice

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 199.00

    These are the proceedings of a meeting in honour of Massimo Capaccioli at the occasion of his 70th birthday. The conference aimed at summarizing the results from the main current and past digital sky survey projects and at discussing how these can be used to inspire ongoing projects and better plan the future ones. Over the last decades, digital sky... more...

  • The Caloris Networkby Nick Kanas

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 19.99

    The year is 2130. The first-ever expedition is sent to Mercury to search for the cause of an unknown source of electromagnetic radiation that can destroy space ships passing by the planet. Thought to be inhospitable and lifeless, the surface of Mercury provides startling surprises for the crew that endanger their lives and challenge their established... more...

  • Light Scattering Reviews, Volume 11by Alexander Kokhanovsky

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2016; US$ 229.00

    This is the eleventh volume in the series Light Scattering Reviews, devoted to current knowledge of light scattering problems and both experimental and theoretical research techniques related to their solution. The focus of this volume is to describe modern advances in radiative transfer and light scattering optics. This book brings together the... more...

  • Modern Fluid Dynamics for Physics and Astrophysicsby Oded Regev; Orkan M. Umurhan; Philip A. Yecko

    Springer New York 2016; US$ 119.00

    This book grew out of the need to provide students with a solid introduction to modern fluid dynamics.  It offers a broad grounding in the underlying principles and techniques used, with some emphasis on applications in astrophysics and planetary science.         The book comprehensively covers recent developments,... more...

  • The Shadow of Black Holesby Arne Grenzebach

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 54.99

    This book introduces an analytic method to describe the shadow of black holes. As an introduction, it presents a survey of the attempts to observe the shadow of galactic black holes. Based on a detailed discussion of the Pleba?ski?Demia?ski class of space-times, the book derives analytical formulas for the photon regions and for the boundary curve... more...
