  • The Early Earth: Accretion and Differentiationby James Badro; Michael J. Walter

    Wiley 2015; US$ 149.95

    The Early Earth: Accretion and Differentiation provides a multidisciplinary overview of the state of the art in understanding the formation and primordial evolution of the Earth.  The fundamental structure of the Earth as we know it today was inherited from the initial conditions 4.56 billion years ago as a consequence of planetesimal accretion,... more...

  • Rekonstruktion und Reduktion physikalischer Theorienby Raphael Bolinger

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 112.00

    Astroparticle physics employs a range of theories to model the sources of cosmic radiation ? but until now, it has not fully captured the relevant connections between these theories. Using Scheibe?s method for the reconstruction and reduction of physical theories, Raphael Bolinger demonstrates the uses and limitations of formal strategies... more...

  • Nuclear Physics of Starsby Christian Iliadis

    Wiley 2015; US$ 103.95

    Most elements are synthesized, or "cooked", by thermonuclear reactions in stars. The newly formed elements are released into the interstellar medium during a star's lifetime, and are subsequently incorporated into a new generation of stars, into the planets that form around the stars, and into the life forms that originate on the planets. Moreover,... more...

  • Black Holes: Thermodynamics, Information, and Firewallsby Robert B. Mann

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99

    This book reflects the resurgence of interest in the quantum properties of black holes, culminating most recently in controversial discussions about firewalls. On the thermodynamic side, it describes how new developments allowed the inclusion of pressure/volume terms in the first law, leading to a new understanding of black holes as chemical systems,... more...

  • Infrared Astronomy ? Seeing the Heatby David L. Clements

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 49.95

    Uncover the Secrets of the Universe Hidden at Wavelengths beyond Our Optical Gaze William Herschel?s discovery of infrared light in 1800 led to the development of astronomy at wavelengths other than the optical. Infrared Astronomy ? Seeing the Heat: from William Herschel to the Herschel Space Observatory explores the work in astronomy that... more...

  • The Fundamentals of Modern Astrophysicsby Mikhail Ya Marov

    Springer New York 2014; US$ 129.00

    The Fundamentals of Modern Astrophysics provides an overview of the modern science of astrophysics. It covers the Sun, Solar System bodies, exoplanets, stars, and star life cycle, planetary systems origin and evolution, basics of astrobiology, our galaxy the Milky Way, other galaxies and galactic clusters, a general view of the Universe, its structure,... more...

  • Particles and Astrophysicsby Maurizio Spurio

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 99.00

    This book is an introduction to ?multi-messenger? astrophysics. It covers the many different aspects connecting particle physics with astrophysics and cosmology and introduces astrophysics using numerous experimental findings recently obtained through the study of high-energy particles. Taking a systematic approach, it comprehensively presents experimental... more...

  • Physics of the Plasma Universeby Anthony L. Peratt

    Springer New York 2014; US$ 179.00

    This book presents the known properties of matter in the plasma state, going from the fundamentals to astrophysical applications. It features examples of scientific problems, as well as numerous illustrations and appendices. more...

  • Spectral Evolution in Blazarsby Christian Fromm

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    This prize-winning thesis deals with the observation and modeling of the spectral evolution of blazars. Based on single-dish light curves, a model of shock-shock interaction is tested and confirmed using multi-frequency high resolution Very Long Baseline Observations. He presents state-of-the art numerical relativistic hydrodynamic simulations and... more...

  • Searching for the Long-Duration Gamma-Ray Burst Progenitorby Robert Allan Mesler III

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    Nominated as an outstanding thesis by the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of New Mexico, this thesis seeks to identify the gamma-ray burst (GRB) progenitor. GRBs are extragalactic explosions that briefly outshine entire galaxies, but the mechanism that can release that much energy over a < 100 second burst is still a mystery.... more...
