  • Boundaries of the Universeby John S Glasby

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 48.95

    The boundaries of space exploration are being pushed back constantly, but the realm of the partially understood and the totally unknown is as great as ever. Among other things this book deals with astronomical instruments and their application, recent discoveries in the solar system, stellar evolution, the exploding starts, the galaxies, quasars,... more...

  • Particles, Strings and Cosmology (Pascos 99)by Kingman Cheung; John F. Gunion; Stephen Mrenna

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2000; US$ 204.00

    The PASCOS (International Symposium on Particles, Strings and Cosmology) series brings together the leading experts and most active young researchers in the closely related fields of elementary particle physics, string theory and cosmology/astrophysics. These areas of research have become increasingly intertwined in recent years, each having direct... more...

  • Mass-Losing Pulsating Stars and their Circumstellar Matterby Y. Nakada; M. Honma; M. Seki

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 206.85

    Editing the proceedings of a scientific meeting is not an easy task. Sometimes people who give an excellent talk do not send the manuscript by the deadline. However, this time, thanks to the punctuality of all the participants, we have this excellent volume for the workshop on mass­ losing pulsating stars and their circumstellar matter prepared in... more...

  • The Deep-Sky Observer?s Yearby Paul Parsons

    Springer London 2012; US$ 76.20

    Deep-sky observing - that's looking at the stars, nebulae and galaxies - is easily the most popular field for amateur astronomers. The big problem faced by non-professional observers is what to look at - what's visible at a paticular time of year. The Deep-sky Observer's Year is a month-by-month guide to the best objects to view. Objects are given... more...

  • Astronomy of the Milky Wayby Michael Inglis

    Springer London 2012; US$ 38.09

    One of the wonders of the universe we live in is the Milky Way. It spans the entire sky and can be seen every night of the year from anywhere on Earth. This is the first book that deals specifically with what can be seen within the Milky Way from a practical observer's point of view. Astronomy of the Milky Way covers every constellation that the... more...

  • Physics of Thermal Gaseous Nebulaeby L.H. Aller

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 185.07

    Gaseous nebulae offer outstanding opportunities to atomic physicists, spectroscopists, plasma experts, and to observers and theoreticians alike for the study of attenuated ionized gases. These nebulae are often dusty, heated by radiation fields and by shocks. They are short-lived phenomena on the scale of a stellar lifetime, but their chemical compositions... more...

  • Starburst Galaxies: Near and Farby L. Tacconi; D. Lutz

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 97.97

    A major fraction of star formation in the universe occurs in starbursts. These regions of particularly rapid star formation are often located towards the centers of host galaxies. Studies of this kind of star formation at high redshift have produced astonishing results over recent years that were only possible with the latest generation of large ground-based... more...
