O., PB Cambridge University Press PP Cambridge, UK; New York YR 2005 SN 0521824486 9780521824484 AB "Fred Hoyle was a remarkable scientist, and made an immense contribution to solving many important problems in astronomy. Several of his obituaries commented that he had influenced the course of astrophysics and cosmology in the second half of the twentieth century more than any other person. This book is based on a meeting that was held in recognition of his work, and contains chapters by many of Hoyle's scientific collaborators. Each chapter reviews an aspect of Fred Hoyle's work; many of the subjects he tackled are still areas of hot debate and active research. This wide-ranging overview will be valuable to established researchers in astrophysics and cosmology, and also to professional historians of science."--BOOK JACKET.
