Atomic jets and molecular out?ows from Young Stellar Objects (YSOs) are among the most spectacular of astrophysical phenomena. Approaching this topic, one gets immediately trapped by the breathtaking beauty of the op- calimagestakenfromEarthorSpacewithmoderntelescopes,onlytodiscover soonafterthatthephysicsthatregulatestheirpropertiesisevenmoreintri-... more...

Molti astrofili ritengono che l?astrofisica sia un argomento difficile, che richiede conoscenze matematiche almeno a livello universitario. Non è necessariamente così. L?approccio quantitativo adottato da Mike Inglis riesce a spiegare tutti gli aspetti dell?astrofisica in termini semplici, evitando i tecnicismi matematici con i quali questa disciplina... more...

In this work the authors draw upon their expertise in geophysical and astrophysical MHD to explore the motion of electrically conducting fluids, the so-called dynamo effect, and describe the similarities and differences between different magnetized objects. They also explain why magnetic fields are crucial to the formation of the stars, and discuss... more...

Magnetism is one of the most pervasive features of the Universe, with planets, stars and entire galaxies all having associated magnetic fields. All of these fields are generated by the motion of electrically conducting fluids, the so-called dynamo effect. The precise details of what drives the motion, and indeed what the fluid consists of, differ... more...

This book gathers the invited conferences presented at the Thirteenth Joint European and National Astronomical Meeting (JENAM) organized by the - ropean Astronomical Society (EAS) and the Spanish Astronomical Society (Sociedad Española de Astronomía, SEA) and hosted by the Instituto de - trofísica de Andalucía (IAA - CSIC). The event, held from September... more...

Before the Higgs boson, there was a maddening search for another particle – the ghostly neutrino. First detected in 1956, its fleeting appearances have teased answers to many mysteries: How did the Big Bang happen? Why is antimatter so rare? What might dark matter be made of? And could faster-than-light travel be possible, overturning Einstein?s theory... more...

Neutrino physics contributed in an fundamental way to the progress of science, opening important windows of knowledge in elementary particle physics, as well in astrophysics and cosmology. Substantial experimental efforts are presently dedicated to improve our knowledge on neutrino properties as, in fact, we don't know yet some of the basic ones. Although... more...

This is an unusual book, combining as it does papers on astrobiology, history of astronomy and sundials, but?after all?Woody Sullivan is an unusual man. In late 2003 I spent two fruitful and enjoyable months in the Astronomy Department at the University of Washington (UW) working on archival material accumulated over the decades by Woody, for a book... more...

This comprehensive volume of articles from the seventh school on non-accelerator astroparticle physics presents a timely coverage of this interesting and rapidly expanding subject. The contributions enlarge and complement the earlier volumes prepared for the fourth, fifth and sixth schools. An informative, pedagogical approach has been maintained so... more...
