  • Interplanetary Magnetohydrodynamicsby L. F. Burlaga

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 264.99

    Data from spacecraft such as Pioneer, Vela and Voyager have revealed the interstellar medium to be a remarkable physical system, which has served as a laboratory for the study of turbulent, supersonic, ideal magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flows. The results of these studies provided confirmation of many theoretical models of the interstellar medium. more...

  • Blowing Bubbles in the Cosmosby T. W. Hartquist; J. E. Dyson; D. P. Ruffle

    Oxford University Press 2004; US$ 52.99

    Many astrophysical bodies produce winds, jets or explosions, which blow bubbles. From a nonmathematical perspective, based on the understanding of bubbles, this book addresses various topics in astrophysics including supernovae, the production of structure in the Early Universe, the environments of supermassive black holes and gamma-ray bursts. more...
