  • Advances In Astronomyby J M T Thompson

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 191.00 US$ 173.81

    In this highly accessible book, leading scientists from around the world give a general overview of research advances in their subject areas within the field of Astronomy. They describe some of their own cutting-edge research and give their visions of the future. Re-written in a popular and well-illustrated style, the articles are mainly derived from... more...

  • New Cosmology, The - Proceedings Of The 16th International Physics Summer School, Canberraby Matthews Colless

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 153.00 US$ 139.23

    This volume presents a comprehensive introduction to modern cosmology from an astrophysical viewpoint. Key features of the book are: breadth of topics covered, from quantum cosmology to recent observational advances; up-to-the-minute inclusion of many recent results, e.g. from the WMAP satellite; the level of the work, suited to both students and professionals... more...

  • Non-accelerator Astroparticle Physics - Proceedings Of The 7th Schoolby R. A. Carrigan; G Giacomelli

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 178.00 US$ 161.98

    This comprehensive volume of articles from the seventh school on non-accelerator astroparticle physics presents a timely coverage of this interesting and rapidly expanding subject. The contributions enlarge and complement the earlier volumes prepared for the fourth, fifth and sixth schools. An informative, pedagogical approach has been maintained so... more...

  • Stardust From Meteoritesby Maria Lugaro

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 66.00 US$ 60.06

    The study of presolar meteoritic grains is a new inter-disciplinary field that brings together topics from nuclear physics to astronomy and chemistry. Traditionally, most of the information about the cosmos has been gathered by observing light through telescopes. However, with the recent discovery that some dust grains extracted from primitive meteorites... more...

  • Diffuse Matter from Star Forming Regions to Active Galaxiesby T.W. Hartquist; J. M. Pittard; S.A.E.G. Falle

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 224.42

    John Dyson has contributed to the study of the hydrodynamic processes that govern a wide variety of astrophysical sources which he has helped explain. In this volume dedicated to him, introductory reviews to a number of the key processes and to the sources themselves are given by leading experts. The mechanisms in which the multi-component natures... more...

  • Quantum Analogues: From Phase Transitions to Black Holes and Cosmologyby William Unruh; Ralf Schützhold

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2007; US$ 94.48

    Recently, analogies between laboratory physics (e.g. quantum optics and condensed matter) and gravitational/cosmological phenomena such as black holes have attracted an increasing interest. Especially in view of the tremendous progress of the experimental capabilities (e.g. regarding superfluids such as liquid Helium or gaseous Bose-Einstein condensates),... more...

  • The New Astronomy: Opening the Electromagnetic Window and Expanding our View of Planet Earthby Wayne Orchiston

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 224.42

    This is an unusual book, combining as it does papers on astrobiology, history of astronomy and sundials, but—after all—Woody Sullivan is an unusual man. In late 2003 I spent two fruitful and enjoyable months in the Astronomy Department at the University of Washington (UW) working on archival material accumulated over the decades by Woody, for a book... more...

  • Lunar and Planetary Webcam User's Guideby Martin Mobberley

    Springer London 2006; US$ 37.13

    This book de-mystifies the jargon of webcams and computer processing, and provides detailed hints and tips for imaging the Sun, Moon and planets with a webcam. It demonstrates how inexpensive technologies are revolutionizing imaging more...

  • Care of Astronomical Telescopes and Accessoriesby M. Barlow Pepin

    Springer London 2006; US$ 79.13

    Commercially-made astronomical telescopes are better and less expensive than ever before, and their optical and mechanical performance can be superb. When a good-quality telescope fails to perform as well as it might, the reason is quite probably that it needs a little care and attention! Here is a complete guide for anyone who wants to understand... more...

  • Digital Astrophotography: The State of the Artby David Ratledge

    Springer London 2006; US$ 37.13

    In the years since The Art and Science of CCD Astronomy was ?rst published, digital imaging has been transformed from what was, in reality, a minority int- est to mainstream. Not even the most committed of CCD devotees could have predicted the few years it would take for digital imaging to supplant ?lm. We all probably guessed that a new age was dawning,... more...
