The evolution of galactic X-ray binaries by J Truemper( Book )

10 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea to hold a conference on the Evolution of Close-Binary X-ray sources grew in the summer of 1984. At that time we were hoping that some new results would be harvested in the months to come which would stimulate further work. We were particularly looking towards the Euro pean X-ray Observatory, EXOSAT, for new contributions. How lucky we were; quite unexpected developments took place. Just prior to the conference, quasi-periodic oscillations (now known as QPO) were discovered in three bright low-mass X-ray binaries: GX 5-1, Sco X-1, and Cyg X-2. They played an important role at the meeting. The possibility that QPOs imply a neutron star magnetic dipole field, and a neutron star rotation period in the millisecond range, received a lot of attention. This is not surprising, as it lends support to the idea, suggested earlier, that the 6-msec binary radio pulsar PSR 1953+29 evolved from a stage in which it was a bright low-mass X-ray binary. There was special interest in the possibility of white dwarf collapse into a neutron star. This is a. particularly attractive way to form the bright low-mass X-ray binaries, often referred to as galactic bulge sources. It would allow for the possibility of a very young neutron star in a very old binary system. The relatively high magnetic fields that one could infer from QPO could then be explained
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 )

14 editions published between 1900 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 172 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
Compact stellar X-ray sources( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

X-ray astronomy is the prime available window on astrophysical compact objects: black holes, neutron stars and white dwarfs. In the last ten years new observational opportunities have led to an explosion of knowledge in this field. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the astrophysics of compact objects that emit X-rays. Sixteen chapters written by the foremost experts in the field cover the observations and the astrophysical interpretation of these objects. Topics covered include binary systems, gamma ray burst sources, soft gamma ray repeaters, anomalous X-ray pulsars, super-soft sources, and enigmatic fast X-ray transients. Further chapters are dedicated to isolated neutron stars and the X-ray source populations of globular clusters. The properties of X-ray binaries are discussed in depth in chapters on quasi-periodic oscillations and related aperiodic X-ray variability, X-ray bursts, black holes, and relativistic jets. This is a valuable reference for both graduate students and active researchers

Es funktioniert! vom Vergnügen, endlich Physik zu verstehen by Walter H. G Lewin( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in German and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die besten Erklärungen des Kult-Professores. Physik verstehen und dabei auch noch Spaß haben? Unmöglich? Generationen begeisterter Zuhörer beweisen das Gegenteil. Mit Wissenschaftsstar Walter Lewin wird das, was jeder über Physik wissen sollte, zum rasanten Abenteuer. Wildly entertaining!Über 30 Jahre lang hält Walter Lewin am MIT eine Einführungsvorlesung für Physik, die unter Studenten Kultstatus hat. Hinter jeder Stunde Unterricht stecken 40 Stunden Vorbereitung. Sein Publikum soll Spaß haben an Fragen, die es sich ohne Physik nie gestellt hätte. Es soll die Schönheit der Naturgesetze entdecken - nicht einfach Formeln von der Tafel abschreiben. Vor einer Abrissbirne begibt sich der Kultprofessor in Lebensgefahr, und keiner vergisst jemals die Umwandlung von Lage- in Bewegungsenergie. Aus Liebe zur Physik wird bei Walter Lewin Begeisterung, und die ist hochansteckend!Über den Autor:Walter Lewin, geboren 1936 in Amsterdam, lehrt seit 1966 am Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Seine beliebten Einführungsvorlesungen für Physik wurden vom MIT komplett aufgezeichnet und führen bei YouTube und iTunes die Klickcharts an. Der vielfach ausgezeichnete Wissenschaftler (u.a. NASA Excepitonal Scientific Achievement, Alexander von Humboldt Award) wird ständig mit Richard Feynman verglichen und hat sich als Forscher auf dem Gebiet der Röntgenastronomie einen Namen gemacht. Sein Co-Autor Warren Goldstein ist Historiker und Wissenschaftsjournalist mit Schwerpunkt Physik
Por amor a la física : del final del arco iris a la frontera del tiempo. Un viaje a través de las maravillas de la física by Walter H. G Lewin( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Durante más de treinta años como profesor en el Instituto Tecnológico de Massachusetts (MIT), Lewin perfeccionó su peculiar arte de enseñar y de hacer de la física algo accesible y divertido. En sus cursos, siempre prácticos, ha llegado a colocar su cabeza delante de un martillo demoledor o a aplicarse una sobrecarga de trescientos mil voltios para explicar conceptos básicos a sus estudiantes. En Por amor a la física, Lewin responde a preguntas curiosas: ¿Es posible que seamos más bajos estando de pie que estando tumbados? ¿Por qué los colores del arcoíris siempre están ordenados del mismo modo? ¿Sería posible tocar alguno con la mano? Lewin acompaña a los lectores en un viaje maravilloso abriendo nuestros ojos ante la increíble belleza y el poder con el que la física puede revelarnos los mecanismos ocultos del mundo que nos rodea
