A.E. Whitford: Directorship of Lick Observatory, 1958-1968( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Whitford was director of the Lick Observatory on Mt. Hamilton from 1959 to 1968. These were transitional years in the history of Lick Observatory. Dr. Whitford oversaw the completion of the 120-inch telescope, and the evolution of Lick Observatory from an independent campus of the University of California, to a sub-unit of the UC Berkeley Campus in 1958, to its incorporation as part of the new UC Santa Cruz campus on November 20, 1964. Whitford's narration not only covers the history of Lick Observatory during this period but also key figures and developments in the science of astronomy itself

Nearly normal galaxies : from the Planck time to the present by S. M Faber( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a collection of 50 review talks given in the morning sessions of the July 1986 Santa Cruz Summer Astrophysics Workshop on Nearly Normal Galaxies. The two-week workshop presented an up-to-date, comprehensive review of galaxy formation and evolution. This topic was given greater coverage than in any previous conference on galaxies. A unique feature of the workshop was the treatment of galaxy formation from the earliest density fluctuations in the early universe up to the latest phases of formation and evolution at present. Each carefully written review gives an up-to-date summary of an important aspect of galaxy evolution, including copious references and citations to current work. Professionals and graduate students alike will find this volume an invaluable summary of, and introduction to, the current literature. The book will also make ideal supplementary reading for graduate courses in galaxy formation and evolution
