Most widely held works by Geoffrey R Burbidge
Quasi-stellar objects by Geoffrey R Burbidge( Book )
17 editions published in 1967 in English and Undetermined and held by 900 libraries worldwide
A different approach to cosmology : from a static universe through the big bang towards reality by Fred Hoyle( Book )
15 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and held by 569 libraries worldwide
All cosmology research adopts one model of the universe, the hot big bang model. But the authors of this book take a different approach. Starting with the beginnings of modern cosmology, they conduct a review of the observations made from 1945 to present
Facts and speculations in cosmology by Jayant Vishnu Narlikar( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 344 libraries worldwide
"The theory of the origin of the universe has advanced overtime through observational evidence as well as through a lot of speculation. In this historical approach to cosmology, the authors review our present ideas on the origin and large-scale structure of the universe against the backdrop of our astronomical knowledge. They argue that the speculative element has become a dominant part of modern cosmology, showing how assumptions have been made and portrayed as confirmed facts." "This unique book gives not only a critical assessment of the big bang theory, but presents a host of anomalous observations, and puts forward an alternative, controversial theory on the origin of the universe. A non-mathematical account, it contains analogies from everyday life so that readers can understand the concepts easily and follow the arguments presented. A thought-provoking insight into the evolution of cosmology for undergraduate students and general readers, this book shows that the mystery of the origin of the universe is far from being solved."--Jacket

Fred Hoyle's universe by Chandra Wickramasinghe( Book )
9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 45 libraries worldwide
This volume contains papers presented at an international conference to celebrate Fred Hoyle's monumental contributions to astronomy, astrophysics and astrobiology and more generally to humanity and culture. The contributed articles highlight the important aspects of his scientific life and show how much of an example and inspiration he has been for over three generations in the 20th century

Astrophysik II Sternaufbau = Astrophysics II : stellar structure by Marshal H Wrubel( file )

Sects. 12, 13. 89 sequence and that subgiant and fainter stars in globular clusters have ultraviolet excesses. When dealing with stars whose physical properties are imperfectly under stood, such as in globular cluster stars, we cannot rely too heavily on the empiri cal calibration by the kinds of stars used to define Fig. 5, to determine their true, unreddened U-B, B-V curve. But if by a combination of arguments, principally the reddening in the region of the stars we do known about, we can assign a fairly probable unreddened U-B, B-V curve to a group of stars about which we know little, the argument may be turned around. In this case some information may be gained about the energy envelope of the stars by examining the differences between the normal two-color index curves for the unknown group of stars compared to the known. In general there seem to be two possible causes for different stars defining different normal sequences in the U-B, B-V plane. One, the relative energy distribution in the continuum in the U, B and V photometry bands are different. An example of this is the effect of the Balmer depression in supergiants. This, of course, requires deviation from black body radiation curves for one or both groups of stars. This cause seems to be the dominant effect for very blue, hot stars where the depression of the continuum by absorption lines is at a minimum
