Galactic dynamics by James Binney ( Book )
24 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An authoritative introduction to galactic astrophysics for advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers, this second edition has been updated with advances in the subject since the 1987 edition
The universe what we know and what we hope to yet find out ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This tape is one of five tapes from the Princeton Adult School's lecture series "The Universe: what we know and what we hope yet to find out" given in the spring 1998 term
The Centers of elliptical galaxies by Scott Tremaine ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A lecture by professor Tremaine of the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics: If accretion onto massive black holes is the power source for quasars, then many, perhaps most, nearby galaxies should contain black holes at their centers. The detecion and weighing of a significant sample of these exotic objects would enhance our understanding of active galactic nuclei and of the centers of inactive galaxies. Professor Tremaine reviews the evidence that bears on this problem, including recent Hubble Space Telescope photometry and spectroscopy of the centers of elliptical galaxies and spiral bulges and discusses some of the dynamical processes that may determine the structure of the central 100 parsecs of galaxies with and without black holes
Oral history interview with Scott Tremaine by Scott Tremaine ( )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Biographical oral history interview. Traces Tremain's career through undergrad and draduate school. Discussion of his work with Jeremiah Ostriker at Princeton, interest in theory and dynamical modeling, and reception of dark matter theories as well as role of Vera Rubin. Contrasts astronomy in U.S. versus Canada. Post graduate work at Caltech and Cambridge. Time at MIT. Discussion of large-scale collaboration in NUKERS project. Covers his participation in three decadeal surveys for astronomy. Return to Princeton and tenure as department chair. Concludes with broad set of questions and discussion about major changes in astronomy, marriage of physics and astronomy, importance of theories about dark matter and dark energy
The demography of massive black holes by Scott Tremaine ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
A review of our current knowledge of the distribution of black holes in the centers of galaxies, and what we can deduce from this distribution about quasar properties and evolution
Studies of galactic structure : the formation of galactic nuclei, the evolution of satellite galaxies, and the stability of bars by Scott Tremaine ( Book )

Galactic Dynamics (Second Edition) by James Binney ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since it was first published in 1987, Galactic Dynamics has become the most widely used advanced textbook on the structure and dynamics of galaxies and one of the most cited references in astrophysics. Now, in this extensively revised and updated edition, James Binney and Scott Tremaine describe the dramatic recent advances in this subject, making Galactic Dynamics the most authoritative introduction to galactic astrophysics available to advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers. Every part of the book has been thoroughly overhauled, and many sections have been comple
