Zeldovich : reminiscences by R. A Si︠u︡ni︠a︡ev( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ya. B. Zeldovich was most assuredly one of the greatest physicists and cosmologists of the 20th century. This volume presents reminiscences about this exemplary academician, providing biographical and historical insights from the friends, students, and colleagues who knew him best. They outline Zeldovich's life and achievements, from his early days in chemical physics through his groundbreaking work in combustion and detonation, his role in the development of Soviet nuclear and thermonuclear weapons, and his contributions to nuclear and elementary particle physics, to his later years in cosmology and astrophysics. Zeldovich: Reminiscences not only pays homage to an outstanding scientist and his accomplishments. It also offers incisive commentary on Soviet science and the impact that Zeldovich had on future generations, in the former Soviet Union and throughout the international physics community
High-energy spectroscopic astrophysics by Steven Michael Kahn( Book )

12 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After three decades of intense research in X-ray and gamma-ray astronomy, the time was ripe to summarize basic knowledge on X-ray and gamma-ray spectroscopy for interested students and researchers ready to become involved in new high-energy missions. This volume exposes both the scientific basics and modern methods of high-energy spectroscopic astrophysics. The emphasis is on physical principles and observing methods rather than a discussion of particular classes of high-energy objects, but many examples and new results are included in the three chapters as well."--Jacket

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 )

18 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 97 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
Jets at all scales : proceedings of the 275th Symposium of the International Astronomical Union held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, September 13-17, 2010 by International Astronomical Union( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Research on all aspects of jet physics has made dramatic progress in recent years. Numerical simulations, semi-analytical models, and observations across the entire electromagnetic spectrum have shed new light on the formation, collimation, propagation, interaction, and radiation of astrophysical jets on all scales. The proceedings of IAU Symposium 275 present an up-to-date account of our current knowledge of jets and outflows in different astronomical situations, covering a vast range of phenomena, from protostellar jets up to extragalactic jets. Reviews by the leading scientists in the field set the context for lively discussions and contributed papers on the most varied aspects of jet physics, fostering links between these usually disparate areas"--Page 4 of cover
Lighthouses of the universe : the most luminous celestial objects and their use for cosmology : proceedings of the MPA/ESO/MPE/USM Joint Astronomy Conference held in Garching, Germany, 6-10 August 2001 by MPA/ESO/MPE/USM joit Astronomy conference( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book reviews the present status of understanding the nature of the most luminous objects in the Universe, connected with supermassive black holes and supermassive stars, clusters of galaxies and ultraluminous galaxies, sources of gamma-ray bursts and relativistic jets. Leading experts give overviews of essential physical mechanisms involved, discuss formation and evolution of these objects as well as prospects for their use in cosmology, as probes of the intergalactic medium at high redshifts and as a tool to study the end of dark ages. The theoretical models are complemented by new exciting results from orbital and ground-based observatories such as Chandra, XMM-Newton, HST, SDSS, VLT, Keck, and many others
High-energy astrophysics : American and Soviet perspectives : proceedings from the U.S.-USSR Workshop on High-Energy Astrophysics, June 18-July 1, 1989 by Walter H. G Lewin( Book )

8 editions published in 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the past decade, the field of astrophysics has progressed at an impressive rate. This was reflected by the topics discussed at the workshop from which this book eminated. These topics include the inflationary universe; the large-scale structure of the universe; the diffuse X-ray background; gravitational lenses, quasars and active galactic nuclei; infrared galaxies; results from infrared astronomical satellites; supernova 1987A; millisecond radio pulsars; quasi-periodic oscillations in the X-ray flux of low-mass X-ray binaries; and gamma-ray bursts
