  • Gamma-Ray Astronomyby E.L. Chupp

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 199.00

    Observation of discrete energy electromagnetic emissions from celestial objects in the radio, IR, optical, lN, and X-ray spectral regions has dramatically advanced our know­ ledge in the field of astrophysics. It is expected that identification of nuclear 'Y-ray line emissions from any cosmic source would also prove to be a powerful new tool for probing... more...

  • Language of the Starsby Zdenek Kopal

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 189.00

    Eclipsing Variables - What They can Tell Us and What We can do with Them The aim of the present book will be to provide an introduction to the inter­ pretation of the observed light changes of eclipsing binary stars and their analysis for the elements of the respective systems. Whenever we study the properties of any celestial body - be it a planet... more...

  • Observational Constraints on the Influence of Active Galactic Nuclei on the Evolution of Galaxiesby Christopher Mark Harrison

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 129.00

    This prize-winning Ph.D. thesis by Chris Harrison adopts a multi-faceted approach to address the lack of decisive observational evidence, utilising large observational data sets from several world-leading telescopes. Developing several novel observational techniques, Harrison demonstrated that energetic winds driven by Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN)... more...

  • Exploring Ancient Skiesby David H. Kelley; A.F. Aveni; Eugene F. Milone

    Springer New York 2011; US$ 119.00

    Beginning with an overview of the field, this updated edition unites methods of archaeology and the insights of modern astronomy in an exploration of the science of astronomy as it was practiced in a number of cultures prior to the invention of the telescope. more...

  • Fast Spectral Variability in the X-ray Emission of Accreting Black Holesby Chris Skipper

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 129.00

    This thesis brings together the various techniques of X-ray spectral analysis in order to examine the properties of black holes that vary in mass by several orders of magnitude. In all these systems it is widely accepted that the X-ray emission is produced by Compton up-scattering of lower energy seed photons in a hot corona or accretion flow, and... more...

  • IRby Nelson L. Alpert; William E. Keiser; Herman A. Szymanski

    Springer US 2012; US$ 99.00

    The first edition of this text was written primarily by one of the present authors (HAS), with a chapter on instrumentation contributed by a second (NLA). The volume was well received, and to keep the text up-to-date a second edition was planned. For this second edition, a third author (WEK) was invited, whose background complemented that of the other... more...

  • Men of Physicsby Raymond J. Seeger; D. ter Haar

    Elsevier Science 2016; US$ 72.95

    Galileo Galilei, His Life and His Works is a biographic of Galileo Galilei. The text accounts some of the most important moments of Galileo?s life, along with his contribution in physics. The first part of the text covers the major aspects of Galileo?s. Part I details Galileo?s life as a student, professor, courtier, and author. Part II covers the... more...

  • Wolf-Rayet and High-Temperature Starsby M.K.V. Bappu; J. Sahade

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

  • Aristotle's "de Caelo" IIIby Theokritos Kouremenos

    Franz Steiner Verlag 2013; US$ 33.40

    <P>This is the first full-scale commentary on Aristotle's <I>de Caelo</I> III to appear in recent decades. <I>de Caelo</I> III can serve as a good introduction to Aristotle's physics and its character. In it he answers some very general questions about the elements of all material things except celestial objects: how many... more...

  • Asteroseismology of Stellar Populations in the Milky Wayby Andrea Miglio; Patrick Eggenberger; Léo Girardi; Josefina Montalban

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 199.00

    The detection of radial and non-radial solar-like oscillations in thousands of G-K giants with CoRoT and Kepler is paving the road for detailed studies of stellar populations in the Galaxy. The available average seismic constraints allow largely model-independent determination of stellar radii and masses, and can be used to determine the position... more...
