The interstellar medium by James Lequeux( Book )

29 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and French and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Describing interstellar matter in our galaxy in all of its various forms, this book also considers the physical and chemical processes that are occurring within this matter. Emphasizing methods over results, The Interstellar Medium is written for graduate students, for young astronomers, and also for any researchers who have developed an interest in the interstellar medium."--Jacket
Physique atomique et moléculaire et matière interstellaire = Atomic and molecular physics and the interstellar matter : Les Houches, session XXVI, 1 juillet-23 août 1974 by Roger Balian( Book )

16 editions published in 1975 in 3 languages and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

New aspects of Magellanic cloud research : proceedings of the Second European Meeting on the Magellanic Clouds by B Baschek( Book )

13 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The proceedings of the Second European Meeting on "New Aspects of MagellanicCloud Research" review the most recent progress in the study of the LMC and SMC. The activities within the ground-based ESO key programme "Coordinated Investigations of Selected Regions in the Magellanic Clouds", as well as new exciting observations from space missions (ROSAT, IUE, ISO, IRAS) result in a more profound insightinto the structure, kinematics, populations (stars, clusters, interstellar medium), and the chemical composition and evolution of the Magellanic Cloud system. The book addresses researchers and graduate students in astrophysics
Birth, evolution and death of stars by James Lequeux( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in French and English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a comprehensive short textbook about stars, their formation, their evolution and their death. It includes a thorough study of single stars, of interactive binary stars, of the formation of elements in stars and of the evolution of galaxies. The most interesting observations are described, then illustrated with beautiful and sometimes spectacular images. The theory is explained in simple terms, but it includes some mathematical or physical developments when they are considered necessary for a good understanding of the phenomena."--Provided by publisher
Le Verrier, magnificent and detestable astronomer by James Lequeux( Book )

19 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le Verrier was a superb scientist. His discovery of Neptune in 1846 made him the most famous astronomer of his time. He produced a complete theory of the motions of the planets which served as a basis for planetary ephemeris for a full century. Doing this, he discovered an anomaly in the motion of Mercury which later became the first proof of General Relativity. He also founded European meteorology. However his arrogance and bad temper created many enemies, and he was even fired from his position of Director of the Paris Observatory
Physique et évolution das galaxies by James Lequeux( Book )

12 editions published in 1967 in 3 languages and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Astronomie spatiale infrarouge, aujourd'hui et demain = Infrared space astronomy, today and tomorrow : Ecole de Physique des Houches - UJF & INPG - Grenoble, Les Houches, Session LXX,3-28 August 1998 by Haute-Savoie, France) Ecole d'été de physique théorique (Les Houches( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together the lectures given at the Les Houches summer school "Infrared space astronomy, today and tomorrow". It gives a wide overview of infrared astronomy, a wavelength domain crucial for studies of the solar system, stars at the beginning and end of their lives, interstellar matter and galaxies at all distances. Recent developments in observational techniques have been tremendous. The first contributions give an introduction to the basic physical processes and methods of detection and data processing. They are followed by a series of lectures dealing with the wide variety of astronomical objects that can be seen in the infrared
