  • Fundamentals Of Solar Astronomyby Arvind Bhatnagar; William Livingston

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 163.00

    There are several textbooks available on solar astronomy which deal with advanced astrophysical aspects of solar physics, and books which provide very elementary knowledge about the Sun. This book will help to bridge the gap. It aims to stimulate interest in solar astronomy, presenting at one place the basic methods and techniques used in the field,... more...

  • Dust In The Universeby K. S. Krishna Swamy

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 163.00

    The study of dust in the universe is an exciting area in current astronomy. Dust formed during an earlier epoch could be different from that formed at a later time, but the nature and composition of dust is not presently understood in its entirety. The comprehensive study presented in this book provides a much needed critical analysis of different... more...

  • 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...
