  • The History of Astronomy: A Very Short Introductionby Michael Hoskin

    OUP Oxford 2003; US$ 7.99

    An introduction to the history of Western astronomy from prehistoric times to the origins of astrophysics in the mid nineteenth century. Emphasis is given to such topics as the merging of Babylonian and Greek astronomy in later Antiquity, Kepler's conversion of astronomy into a branch of dynamics, and the first explorations of the universe of stars. more...

  • Cosmology: A Very Short Introductionby Peter Coles

    OUP Oxford 2001; US$ 7.99

    This book is a simple, non-technical introduction to cosmology, explaining what it is and what cosmologists do. Peter Coles discusses the history of the subject, the development of the Big Bang theory, and more speculative modern issues like quantum cosmology, superstrings, and dark matter. more...

  • Nonlinear Gravitodynamicsby Remo Ruffini; Costantino Sigismondi

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 118.00 US$ 107.38

    This book gives a detailed, up-to-date account of the Lense–Thirring effect and its implications for physics and astrophysics. Starting from a profound intuition of Lense and Thirring in 1918, based on a simple solution to the linearized Einstein field equations, this has emerged in the past four decades as a phenomenon of extraordinary importance... more...

  • Teaching and Learning Astronomyby Jay Pasachoff; John Percy

    Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 50.00

    This volume highlights astronomy in the curriculum, and addresses how the teaching and learning of astronomy can be improved worldwide. more...

  • Impact!by Gerrit L. Verschuur

    Oxford University Press 1997; US$ 26.00

    Most scientists now agree that some sixty-five million years ago, an immense comet slammed into the Yucatan, detonating a blast twenty million times more powerful than the largest hydrogen bomb, punching a hole ten miles deep in the earth. Trillions of tons of rock were vaporized and launched into the atmosphere. For a thousand miles in all directions,... more...

  • Mathematical instrumentation in fourteenth-century Egypt and Syriaby F. Charette

    BRILL 2003; US$ 247.00

    An illustrated Arabic treatise, with an English translation and detailed commentary, on the construction of over 100 various astronomical instruments, many of which are otherwise unknown to specialists. It was composed by Najm al-Din al-Misri, a rather shadowy figure, in Cairo around 1330 CE. more...

  • Spontaneous Current Sheets in Magnetic Fieldsby Eugene N. Parker

    Oxford University Press 1994; US$ 204.99

    This book expands upon ideas in the author's classic text Cosmical Magnetic Fields. This is the first book-length treatment of the magnetohydrodynamic theory of spontaneous magnetic discontinuities. Most continuous magnetic fields develop internal discontinuities as they relax to equilibrium. The formation of the tangential discontinuities is driven... more...

  • Physical Foundations of Cosmologyby Viatcheslav Mukhanov

    Cambridge University Press 2005; US$ 97.00

    Textbook in cosmology covering established and speculative research for advanced students of physics and astrophysics. more...

  • Fundamentals Of Solar Astronomyby Arvind Bhatnagar; William Livingston

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 58.00 US$ 52.78

    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$ 100.00 US$ 91.00

    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...
