  • Pulsating Starsby M?rcio Catelan; Horace A. Smith

    Wiley 2015; US$ 120.95

    This book surveys our understanding of stars which change in brightness because they pulsate. Pulsating variable stars are keys to distance scales inside and beyond the Milky Way galaxy. They test our understanding not only of stellar pulsation theory but also of stellar structure and evolution theory. Moreover, pulsating stars are important probes... more...

  • Thermal Convection, Magnetic Field, and Differential Rotation in Solar-type Starsby Hideyuki Hotta

    Springer Japan 2015; US$ 129.00

    This thesis describes the studies on the solar interior where turbulent thermal convection plays an important role. The author solved, for the first time, one of the long-standing issues in solar physics, i.e., the maintenance mechanism of the solar differential rotation in the near-surface shear layer. The author attacked this problem with a newly... more...

  • Dark Matterby Debasish Majumdar

    CRC Press 2015; US$ 89.95

    Dark Matter: An Introduction tackles the rather recent but fast-growing subject of astroparticle physics, encompassing three main areas of fundamental physics: cosmology, particle physics, and astrophysics. Accordingly, the book discusses symmetries, conservation laws, relativity, and cosmological parameters and measurements, as well as the astrophysical... more...

  • Planetary Geodesy and Remote Sensingby Shuanggen Jin

    CRC Press 2015; US$ 149.95

    Although lunar exploration began in the 1960s, the moon and other planets have many long-standing, unanswered questions about planetary environments, origin, formation and evolution, magnetization of crustal rocks, internal structure, and possible life. However, with the recent development of planetary geodesy and remote sensing with higher spatial... more...

  • The Sun-Climate Connection Over the Last Millennium Facts and Questionsby Maxim Ogurtsov

    Bentham Science Publishers 2015; US$ 49.00

    This eBook presents fundamental information about the solar activity, space weather, terrestrial climates and their variations over an extended period of time.

  • The Twenty-first Century in Spaceby Ben Evans

    Springer New York 2014; US$ 44.99

    This final entry in the History of Human Space Exploration mini-series by Ben Evans continues with an in-depth look at the latter part of the 20th century and the start of the new millennium. Picking up where Partnership in Space left off, the story commemorating the evolution of manned space exploration unfolds in further detail. More than fifty... more...

  • Ecology of Blue Straggler Starsby Henri M. J. Boffin; Giovanni Carraro; Giacomo Beccari

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2014; US$ 179.00

    The existence of blue straggler stars, which appear younger, hotter, and more massive than their siblings, is at odds with a simple picture of stellar evolution. Such stars should have exhausted their nuclear fuel and evolved long ago to become cooling white dwarfs. They are found to exist in globular clusters, open clusters, dwarf spheroidal galaxies... more...

  • A Concise History of Solar and Stellar Physicsby Jean-Louis Tassoul; Monique Tassoul

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    This book provides a comprehensive overview of the history of ideas about the sun and the stars, from antiquity to modern times. Two theoretical astrophysicists who have been active in the field since the early 1960s tell the story in fluent prose. About half of the book covers most of the theoretical research done from 1940 to the close of the twentieth... more...

  • The Twin Sister Planets Venus and Earthby Robert Malcuit

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    This book explains how it came to be that Venus and Earth, while very similar in chemical composition, zonation, size and heliocentric distance from the Sun, are very different in surface environmental conditions. It is argued here that these differences can be accounted for by planetoid capture processes and the subsequent evolution of the planet-satellite... more...
