The classification of stars by Carlos Jaschek( Book )

22 editions published between 1987 and 2001 in English and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classification of stars into their various types is one of the fundamental areas of astronomy. This book is a comprehensive handbook on the tools, methods and results of stellar taxonomy. Although this subject is firmly rooted in classical astronomy, vast improvements in observational techniques have transformed the subject and greatly broadened the wavelength regions available for study. The first six chapters describe modern methods of spectroscopic and photometric classification. The remaining nine chapters describe particular families of stars, progressing from the hottest to the coolest. Within each category a description is given of the normal type and all the peculiar stars. Throughout the emphasis is on the phenomenology of classification, rather than the underlying astrophysics. Both authors have devoted themselves to developing the international centre for stellar data at Strasbourg, which uniquely qualifies them to write this definitive handbook for professional astronomers

Light curves of variable stars : a pictorial atlas by C Sterken( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This unique volume provides a complete reference on variable stars. It presents a wealth of typical light and colour curves (more than 200 in all) to allow identification, together with a detailed and up-to-date description of each subclass (giving the observational characteristics, historic background and current understanding of the astrophysical processes responsible for the variability)." "The editors, together with seven other world experts, have created a unique pictorial atlas of variable stars. In the first chapter they give a clear introduction to the nomenclature and classification of the light curves of variable stars, and to photometric systems and photometric accuracy. In the remaining chapters they provide a detailed account of each subclass of variable star in turn from eruptive, pulsating, rotating and cataclysmic variables, through to eclipsing binary systems and X-ray binaries. Specific variable stars, types and classes of variables, together with key astrophysical terms can be quickly and easily located in the book by means of detailed object-name and subject indexes." "This comprehensive and up-to-date volume provides an essential reference for all those interested in variable stars - from researchers and graduate students through to dedicated amateurs."--Jacket
The behavior of chemical elements in stars by Carlos Jaschek( Book )

16 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite more than one century of observational stellar spectroscopy, the resulting data is not available in an easily accessible format. The necessity of such basic information is greater than ever, because new wavelength regions (ultraviolet, infrared) are now accessible and modern receivers can only analyse short stretches of spectra, so that a careful pre-selection of strategic elements is mandatory. This book presents a summary of our knowledge of the behaviour of all chemical elements identified in stars, based on observations rather than on their interpretations. Whenever possible the behaviour is described quantitatively, with the help of equivalent widths in different types of stars, or different ionization stages, for both absorption and emission features. It will provide an authoritative reference book for the astrophysical community

Automated data retrieval in astronomy : proceedings of the 64th Colloquium of the International Astronomical Union, held in Strasbourg, France, July 7-10, 1981 by International Astronomical Union( Book )

12 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea of this Colloquium came during the XVIIth General Assembly of the I.A.U. at Montreal. The meeting was organized under the auspices of I.A.U. Commission 5 (Documentation and Astronomical Data). The Scientific Organizing Committee consisted of C. Jaschek (chairperson), O. Dluzhnevskaya, B. Hauck (vice chairperson), W. Heintz, P. Lantos, Th. Lederle, J. Mead~ G. Ruben, Y. Terashita, G. Wilkins. The members of this Committee are to be thanked for their devotion to the organization of what turned out to be a very successful meeting. The program was organized so as to cover most of the aspects concerning work with machine readable data. In a certain sense it is the develop ment of the subjects of I.A.U. Colloquium 35 "Compilation, critical evaluation and distribution of stellar data" held at Strasbourg in 1976. The meeting was opened by welcoming addresses delivered by Dr A. Florsch, Director of the Strasbourg Observatory, Prof. H. Curien, President of the European Science Foundation and Prof. W. Heintz, President of I.A.U. Commission 5. The sessions were devoted to the fol lowing subjects : Existing data centers, Data networks, New hardware, Recent software developments, Bibliographical services, Copyright, Editorial policies and nomenclature, Data in astronomy and Data in space astronomy. The different sessions were chaired by G.A. Pilkins, J. Mead, S. Lavrov, W. Heintz, P. Lantos, M. McCarthy, J. Delhaye and G. Westerhout. On July 9. Dr A

B[e] stars : proceedings of the Paris workshop held from 9-12 June, 1997( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These proceedings provide a broad overview of the research carried out to date on B-type stars with forbidden emission lines and dusty envelopes. These objects may represent an important transition stage in the evolution of many early-type stars, but they have been little studied until now. The book brings together the information available on the distribution, absolute magnitude, spectra in all wavelength ranges, photometric properties and variability of these objects. Also discussed are the different theoretical models proposed for explaining the amazing variety of phenomena observed

Compilation, critical evaluation and distribution of stellar data by Carlos Jaschek( )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The principal purpose of IAU Colloquium No. 35 was to discuss those aspects of the techniques of the compilation, evaluation, and distribution of data that are common to astrometry, photometry and spectrometry of stars and stellar systems. In the announcement of the Colloquium, it was suggested that there would be special emphasis on the techniques of quality control, and on the standards for the presentation of numerical data in both printed and com puter-readable form. As the meeting progressed it became clear that the lack of a standard, unambiguous system for the identifi cation of stellar objects was a source of much confusion and inefficiency in the use of existing data files. This and other such matters were the subject of further discussions by Commission 5 at the General Assembly of the International Astronomical Union (IAU), which was held at Grenoble during the following fortnight, 24 August - 2 September 1976. The proposal for the Colloquium was prepared by J. Jung, who was then Director of the Centre des Donnees Stellaires at Stras bourg, and G.A. Wilkins, Chairman of the IAU Working Group on Numerical Data, and was accepted by the IAU Executive Committee on the recommendation of the President of Commission 5, with the support of Commissions 25, 29 and 45. The Scientific Organising Committee consisted of W. Fricke, B. Hauck, C. Jaschek, J. Jung, B. Kukarkin, P. Lacroute, A. Underhill and G.A. Wilkins (Chair man). The Local Organising Committee consisted of A
