From twilight to highlight : the physics of supernovae : proceedings of the ESO/MPA/MPE Workshop held at Garching, Germany, 29-31 July 2002 by ESO/MPA/MPE Workshop( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Supernovae, their bearing on cosmology and their connection to gamma-ray bursts are now at the center of astrophysical research programs. This volume deals with astronomical observations of supernovae and their relation to nuclear and particle astrophysics. All known aspects of supernovae explosions are investigated in articles specifically written for researchers and advanced graduate students. It also includes recent numerical "experiments" related to the question of hydrodynamical instability in two and three dimensions and to problems concerning the complexity of radiation transport in the models. Other contributions discuss the possible energy sources needed to drive these powerful stellar explosions
The scientific requirements for extremely large telescopes : proceedings of the 232nd symposium of the International Astronomical Union held in Cape Town, South Africa, November 14-18, 2005 by International Astronomical Union( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the inauguration of the Southern African Large Telescope (SALT), the international ELT community met in Cape Town to discuss the next generation of telescopes - those with apertures in excess of 20m. This volume presents the results of their deliberations, starting with reviews of the scientific needs emerging from the exploitation of the present generation of large telescopes and an examination of the technical lessons that might be transferred to larger telescopes. Scientific discussions cover four broad themes: galaxy formation, galaxy evolution and cosmology; stellar populations; the intergalactic medium; and exoplanets and star formation. The status of the various projects is discussed with details of site testing, detector development and an emphasis on adaptive optics which will be critical for these extremely large telescopes. Much of the discussion of IAU S232 is reproduced in detail, providing a real flavour of the controversial issues. -- Publisher description
Relativistic astrophysics and cosmology--Einstein's legacy : proceedings of the MPE/USM/MPA/ESO Joint Astronomy Conference held in Munich, Germany, 7-11 November 2005 by B Aschenbach( )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Relativistic Astrophysics and Cosmology" have developed into important and fruitful research areas with a hitherto unprecented public interest. The year 2005, which marked the 100th anniversary of the 'annus mirabilis', that year in which Albert Einstein published three of his most important scientific papers, was the perfect opportunity to review and to present the current scientific understanding of relativistic topics including cosmological models, cosmology related measurements, the large scale properties of the Universe, dark matter and dark energy, the theory of gravity, black holes, theory and measurements, active galactic nuclei, clusters of galaxies, jets. Each of these subjects is addressed and the book represents a useful reference tool both for the expert and the new-comer in these fields
The sun from space by Kenneth R Lang( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is a comprehensive account of solar astrophysics and how our perception and knowledge of this star have gradually evolved as mankind has elucidated ever more of its mysteries. The emphasis is on the last decade, which has seen three successful solar spacecraft missions: SOHO, Ulysses and Yohkoh. Together these have confirmed many aspects of the Sun and its output, and provided new clues to the numerous open questions that remain."--Jacket
Planetary systems : detection, formation and habitability of extrasolar planets by Ollivier( )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past ten years, the discovery of extrasolar planets has opened a new field of astronomy, and this area of research is rapidly growing, from both the observational and theoretical point of view. The presence of many giant exoplanets in the close vicinity of their star shows that these newly discovered planetary systems are very different from the solar system. New theoretical models are being developed in order to understand their formation scenarios, and new observational methods are being implemented to increase the sensitivity of exoplanet detections." "In the present book, the authors address the question of planetary systems from all aspects. Starting from the facts (the detection of more than 300 extraterrestrial planets), they first describe the various methods used for these discoveries and propose a synthetic analysis of their global properties. They then consider the observations of young stars and circumstellar disks and address the case of the solar system as a specific example, different from the newly discovered systems. Then the study of planetary systems and of exoplanets is presented from a more theoretical point of view. The book ends with an outlook to future astronomical projects, and a description of the search for life on exoplanets. This book addresses students and researchers who wish to better understand this newly expanding field of research."--Jacket
Physics, formation and evolution of rotating stars by André Maeder( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rotation is ubiquitous at each step of stellar evolution, from star formation to the final stages, and it affects the course of evolution, the timescales and nucleosynthesis. Stellar rotation is also an essential prerequisite for the occurrence of Gamma-Ray Bursts. This book examines the basic mechanical and thermal effects of rotation
Deep impact as a world observatory event : synergies in space, time, and wavelength : proceedings of the ESO/VUB conference held in Brussels, Belgium, 7-10 August 2006 by Hans Ulrich Käufl( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the context of the NASA Deep Impact space mission, comet 9P/Tempel1 has been at the focus of an unprecedented worldwide long-term multi-wavelength observation campaign. The comet was also studied throughout its perihelion passage by various sources including the Deep Impact mission itself, the Hubble Space Telescope, Spitzer, Rosetta, XMM and all major ground-based observatories in a wavelength band from cm-wave radio astronomy to x-rays. This book includes the proceedings of a meeting that brought together an audience of theoreticians and observers - across the electromagnetic spectrum and from different sites and projects - to make full use of the massive ground-based observing data set. The coherent presentation of all data sets illustrates and examines the various observational constraints on modelling the cometary nucleus, cometary gas, cometary plasma, cometary dust, and the comet's surface and its activity

Tools of Radio Astronomy by T. L Wilson( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 6th edition of "Tools of Radio Astronomy", the most used introductory text in radio astronomy, has been revised to reflect the current state of this important branch of astronomy. This includes the use of satellites, low radio frequencies, the millimeter/sub-mm universe, the Cosmic Microwave Background and the increased importance of mm/sub-mm dust emission. Several derivations and presentations of technical aspects of radio astronomy and receivers, such as receiver noise, the Hertz dipole and beam forming have been updated, expanded, re-worked or complemented by alternative derivations. These reflect advances in technology. The wider bandwidths of the Jansky-VLA and long wave arrays such as LOFAR and mm/sub-mm arrays such as ALMA required an expansion of the discussion of interferometers and aperture synthesis. Developments in data reduction algorithms have been included. As a result of the large amount of data collected in the past 20 years, the discussion of solar system radio astronomy, dust emission, and radio supernovae has been revisited. The chapters on spectral line emission have been updated to cover measurements of the neutral hydrogen radiation from the early universe as well as measurements with new facilities. Similarly the discussion of molecules in interstellar space has been expanded to include the molecular and dust emission from protostars and very cold regions. Several worked examples have been added in the areas of fundamental physics, such as pulsars. Both students and practicing astronomers will appreciate this new up-to-date edition of Tools of Radio Astronomy

Solar System Astrophysics : Planetary Atmospheres and the Outer Solar System by E. F Milone( )

1 edition published in 2008 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The second edition of Solar System Astrophysics: Planetary Atmospheres and the Outer Solar System provides a timely update of our knowledge of planetary atmospheres and the bodies of the outer solar system and their analogs in other planetary systems. This volume begins with an expanded treatment of the physics, chemistry, and meteorology of the atmospheres of the Earth, Venus, and Mars, moving on to their magnetospheres and then to a full discussion of the gas and ice giants and their properties. From here, attention switches to the small bodies of the solar system, beginning with the natural satellites. Then comets, meteors, meteorites, and asteroids are discussed in order, and the volume concludes with the origin and evolution of our solar system. Finally, a fully revised section on extrasolar planetary systems puts the development of our system in a wider and increasingly well understood galactic context. All of the material is presented within a framework of historical importance. This book and its sister volume, Solar System Astrophysics: Background Science and the Inner Solar system, are pedagogically well written, providing clearly illustrated explanations, for example, of such topics as the numerical integration of the Adams-Williamson equation, the equations of state in planetary interiors and atmospheres, Maxwell's equations as applied to planetary ionospheres and magnetospheres, and the physics and chemistry of the Habitable Zone in planetary systems. Together, the volumes form a comprehensive text for any university course that aims to deal with all aspects of solar and extra-solar planetary systems. They will appeal separately to the intellectually curious who would like to know just how far our knowledge of the solar system has progressed in recent years
