  • Hot Interstellar Matter in Elliptical Galaxiesby

    Springer New York 2011; US$ 149.00

    Based on a number of discoveries resulting from 10 years of Chandra and XMM-Newton observations and corresponding theoretical works, this is the first book to address significant progress in the research of the Hot Interstellar Matter in Elliptical Galaxies. more...

  • Eta Carinae and the Supernova Impostorsby

    Springer New York 2012; US$ 189.00

    In 1965 Fritz Zwicky proposed a class of supernovae that he called "Type V", described as "excessively faint at maximum". There were only two members, SN1961v and Eta Carinae. We now know that Eta Carinae was not a true supernova, but if it were observed today in a distant galaxy we would call it a "supernova impostor". 170 years ago it experienced... more...

  • The First Galaxiesby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 179.00

    Exploring intriguing questions about where the first generations of stars were formed, book discusses how the first galaxies were assembled, whether early galaxies have low redshift counterparts and what role early galaxies played in the reionization process. more...

  • The First Results from SOHOby

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 339.00

    The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) is a joint ESA/NASA mission to study the Sun, from its deep core to the outer corona, and the solar wind. SOHO was launched on 2 December 1995 and was inserted into a halo orbit around the L1 Lagrangian point more...

  • The Sun as a Variable Star: Solar and Stellar Irradiance Variationsby

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 129.00

    Proceedings of the 143rd Colloquium of the International Astronomical Union held in the Clarion Harvest House, Boulder, Colorado, June 20--25, 1993 more...

  • Groups of Galaxies in the Nearby Universeby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 119.00

    For every galaxy in the field or in clusters, there are about three galaxies in groups. The Milky Way itself resides in a group, and groups can be found at high redshift. The current generation of 10-m class telescopes and space facilities allows the observation of the members of nearby groups with exquisite detail, and their properties can be correlated... more...

  • The 2007 ESO Instrument Calibration Workshopby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 149.00

    The 2007 ESO Instrument Calibration workshop brought together more than 120 participants with the objective to a) foster the sharing of information, experience and techniques between observers, instrument developers and instrument operation teams, b) review the actual precision and limitations of the applied instrument calibration plans, and c) collect... more...

  • Globular Clusters - Guides to Galaxiesby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2008; US$ 139.00

    The principal question of whether and how globular clusters can contribute to a better understanding of galaxy formation and evolution is perhaps the main driving force behind the overall endeavour of studying globular cluster systems. This work covers the scientific knowledge of the field. more...

  • Nanodust in the Solar System: Discoveries and Interpretationsby

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2012; US$ 159.00

    Here is a focused description of current research and experimental results concerning nanodust in the solar system, addressing three major questions: What is nanodust? How was it discovered in the solar system? and, How do we interpret the observations? more...
