The Magellanic clouds. A European Southern Observatory presentation: principal prospects, current observational and theoretical approaches, and prospects for future research. Based on the Symposium on the Magellanic Clouds, held in Santiago de Chile, March 1969, on the occasion of the dedication of the European Southern Observatory by André B Muller( Book )

4 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On March 28 and 29, 1969, at the occasion of the dedication of the European Southern Observatory, some 90 astronomers from all over the world gathered at the ESO headquarters at Santiago de Chile for discussing problems of the Magellanic Clouds. They came from Argentina, Australia, Chile, Mexico, South Mrica and the United States as well as from Europe; these latter, naturally, mostly from the member states ofESO. The choice of the subject was an obvious one. When erecting the European Southern Observatory as a joint effort in European astronomy, it was agreed from the beginning that the field of research should be the southern sky, so far hardly explored with large telescopes. Among the objects to be investigated, the Magellanic Clouds rank highest, together with the galactic centre region and the southern spiral structure. Being located ten times closer than the nearest large stellar systems accessible to northern observers, and containing a stellar population ranging in age from the oldest down of star formation, the Clouds provide an ideal laboratory for research on to the stage current problems in astrophysics. Yet, most of the northern observational astronomers were hardly acquainted with the Magellanic Clouds; naturally, they are used to think in terms of research projects that can be conducted at their observatories. A survey of the status of knowledge and research on the Clouds therefore appeared in order now that the first- medium size- telescopes of ESO came into operation

Black holes in binaries and galactic nuclei : diagnostics, demography, and formation : proceedings of the ESO workshop held at Garching, Germany, 6-8 September 1999, in honour of Riccardo Giacconi( Book )

4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The observational evidence for the existence of black holes has grown significantly over recent decades. Stellar-mass black holes are detected as X-ray sources in binary systems, while supermassive black holes, with masses more than a million times the mass of the Sun, lurk in the nuclei of galaxies. These proceedings provide a useful and up-to-date overview of the observations of black holes in binaries, in the center of the Milky Way, and in the nuclei of galaxies, presented by leading expert astronomers. Special attention is given to the formation (including the recent evidence from gamma-ray bursts), physical properties, and demographics of black holes
Chemical evolution from zero to high redshift : proceedings of the ESO workshop held at Garching, Germany, 14-16 October, 1998 by ESO workshop( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The observational and interpretive tools for the study of chemical evolution are starting to be mature enough that they can be applied with some confidence to extra-galactic systems and integrated populations at increasingly high redshift. This book is devoted to the study of the interplay between different methods of measuring chemical abundances with astrophysical models. Studies of chemical abundances and evolution from stars, inter-stellar medium and local group galaxies at zero redshift to distant galaxies, clusters of galaxies and inter-galactic medium at high redshift are presented. There are also synopses on progress in instrumentation for abundance determination

Growing black holes : accretion in a cosmological context : proceedings of the MPA/ESO/MPE/USM joint astronomy conference held in Garching, Germany, 21-25 June 2004 by A Merloni( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Supermassive black holes are now believed to play an important role in the evolution of the Universe. Every respectable galaxy hosts in its center a black hole that appears to regulate the growth of the galaxy itself. In this book, leading experts in the field review the most recent theoretical and observational results on the following topics: * formation and growth of the first black holes in the Universe and their role in the formation and evolution of galaxies * the physics of black-hole accretion and the production of relativistic jets * binary black-hole mergers and gravitational radiation. Theoretical work is supplemented by the most recent exciting results from space and ground based observatories. This volume is useful research and reference tool for the entire astrophysical community
Groups of galaxies in the nearby universe : proceedings of the ESO Workshop held at Santiago de Chile, December 5-9, 2005 by I Saviane( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For every galaxy in the field or in clusters, there are about three galaxies in groups. The Milky Way itself resides in a group, and groups can be found at high redshift. The current generation of 10-m class telescopes and space facilities allows the observation of the members of nearby groups with exquisite detail, and their properties can be correlated with the global properties of their host group. Groups in the local Universe offer us the chance to study galaxies in environments characterized by strong interactions. In the cosmological context, groups trace large-scale structures better than clusters, and the evolution of groups and clusters appears to be related. All these aspects of research on groups of galaxies are summarized in this book written by scientists working in various fields
The ESO/Uppsala survey of the ESO (B) atlas by Andris Lauberts( Book )

3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Precision spectroscopy in astrophysics : proceedings of the ESO/Lisbon/Aveiro Conference held in Aveiro, Portugal, 11-15 September 2006 by Nuno C Santos( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"High-accuracy Doppler shift measurements and high-precision spectroscopy are primary techniques in the search for exo-planets." "Further extremely interesting applications include the analysis of QSO absorption lines to determine the variability of physical constants and the analysis of the isotopic ratios of absorption lines both in stars and in QSOs, and the determination of stellar oscillations through radial velocity measurements. Since the use of high-precision/resolution spectroscopy is closely connected to the ability to collect a large number of photons, the scientific domains using this technique benefit tremendously from the use of 8-meter class telescopes and will fully exploit the tremendous gain provided by future Extremely Large Telescopes (ELTs). IR high-resolution spectroscopy should soon approach the same accuracy regime achieved in the optical range." "This volume covers the astrophysical and technical aspects of high-precision spectroscopy with an outlook to future developments, and represents a reference work for researchers in those fields."--Jacket

The present volume is the record of a recent topical conference on the interplay between heating and cooling processes in galaxies and clusters of galaxies. The volume documents recent progress in our understanding of the dense central regions of these objects. Chapters detail recent results from multiwavelength observations and advances in numerical hydrodynamical simulations. An additional section covers new research on feedback and self-regulatory mechanisms during cosmic structure formation in general, and in galaxy formation in particular. With reviews and technical papers written by leading scientists, this state-of-the art report will be a valuable and comprehensive source of reference for all astronomers and astrophysicists active in this field
Science with the VLT in the ELT era by A. F. M Moorwood( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Workshop 'Science with the VLT in the ELT era' was organised by ESO as a forum for the astronomical community to debate its expected future use of ESO's Very Large Telescope (and its VLTI interferometric mode) when other facilities such as ALMA, JWST and, hopefully, at least one extremely large 30-40m class telescope will be operating. VLT/I science highlights were presented, future science priorities argued, synergies between the VLT and the future facilities confirmed and specific new VLT/I instruments proposed

Europe to the Stars : ESO's First 50 Years of Exploring the Southern Sky by Govert Schilling( )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The creation of the European Southern Observatory (ESO) in 1962 was the culmination of the dream of leading astronomers from five European countries. Over the years, as more member states joined, ESO constructed the La Silla and Paranal observatories, as well as the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) together with partners. ESO is now starting to build the world's biggest eye on the sky, the European Extremely Large Telescope. At the dawn of 2012, its 50th anniversary year, ESO is ready to enter a new era. One that not even its founding members could have antici
