Solar System Astrophysics

Background Science and the Inner Solar System

by Eugene F. Milone,

It presents equations and derivations starting from a level that permits one to see the underlying physical ideas. There is no other book that does this on the market.

The book presents an up-to-date overview on all essential topics but is concise where possible to keep it a practical resource for courses.

The book is based on extensive experience in the class room. Its contents have been field-tested for years by students.

"This book is the first of a two-part series based on undergraduate notes from a course designed by Milone and Wilson … for second- and third-year astrophysics majors and given at Calgary. … There are ample black-and-white photos, six pages of color photos, adequate figures and diagrams, plus a good nine-page index. … Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." (W. E. Howard, Choice, Vol. 46 (4), December, 2008)
