  • The Physics of Interstellar Dustby Endrik Krugel

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 253.00

    Interstellar dust grains catalyse chemical reactions, absorb, scatter, polarise and re-radiate starlight and constitute the building blocks for the formation of planets. Understanding this interstellar component is therefore of primary importance in many areas of astronomy & astrophysics. For example, observers need to understand how dust effects light... more...
