The role of dust in the formation of stars : proceedings of the ESO workshop held at Garching, Germany, 11-14 September 1995 by European southern observatory (Berlino)( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in German and English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, which is published in the early phase of ESA s Infrared Space Observatory mission, provides a comprehensive summary of the knowledge in this field of astronomy. In a series of invited review lectures and numerous contributed papers the role of dust in the formation of stars is described and discussed. Dust is ubiquitous in star-forming regions, protostars, young stellar objects and stars in various pre-main-sequence stages up to perfectly normal main-sequence stars. Consequently the authors address the topic from rather different viewpoints. Observers describe and analyze signatures of dust in the entire electromagnetic spectrum from the radio to the ultra-violet. Successfull modelling of these signatures with radiative transfer codes is demonstrated for a great variety of sources. Astrophysical laboratory researchers report on studies of synthetic prototype samples of interstellar dust. Other topics covered in this book are dust processing, dust agglomeration, dust coupling to the magnetic field or dust electric charging. Moreover, the reader will learn about dust chemical composition, gas-phase chemistry and photo-chemistry. From a mostly theoretical viewpoint the role of dust as a catalytic agent for star formation is described in great detail
Galaxy scaling relations : origins, evolution, and applications : proceedings of the ESO workshop held at Garching, Germany, 18-20 November 1996 by European Southerm Observatory( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and German and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is part of the ESO conference series meant to survey the current status of different areas of astronomical research and explore science opportunities with the European Very Large Telescope (VLT). The research presented focuses on the origins, evolution and applications of galaxy scaling relations. Reviews of the properties and scaling relations of local galaxies and several reports of recent results from observations of high redshift galaxies using the Hubble Space Telescope and the Keck Telescope are also included. Current theoretical efforts to explain the origin of the observed scaling relations and the contraints imposed by the new data, as well as the use of galaxy--galaxy lensing to probe the scaling properties of dark matter halos are investigated. The book includes contributions that consider the use of the scaling relations to measure distance of galaxies and map the peculiar velocity field of galaxies in the nearby universe, as well as the constraints imposed on cosmological models from the analysis of cosmic flows
Chemical evolution from zero to high redshift : proceedings of the ESO workshop held at Garching, Germany, 14-16 October, 1998 by ESO Workshop( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The observational and interpretive tools for the study of chemical evolution are starting to be mature enough that they can be applied with some confidence to extra-galactic systems and integrated populations at increasingly high redshift. This book is devoted to the study of the interplay between different methods of measuring chemical abundances with astrophysical models. Studies of chemical abundances and evolution from stars, inter-stellar medium and local group galaxies at zero redshift to distant galaxies, clusters of galaxies and inter-galactic medium at high redshift are presented. There are also synopses on progress in instrumentation for abundance determination

Groups of galaxies in the nearby universe : proceedings of the ESO Workshop held at Santiago de Chile, December 5-9, 2005 by I Saviane( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For every galaxy in the field or in clusters, there are about three galaxies in groups. The Milky Way itself resides in a group, and groups can be found at high redshift. This book aims to offer us the chance to study galaxies in environments characterized by strong interactions. It summarizes various aspects of research on groups of galaxies
Chemical abundances and mixing in stars in the Milky Way and its satellites : proceedings of the ESO-Arcetri Workshop held in Castiglione della Pescaia, Italy, 13-17 September 2004 by L Pasquini( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of chemical abundances and internal mixing of elements in stars has made large progress in the last decade. Both a wealth of new observational data and in the last years also the inauguration of new theoretical roads have been the stimulus for this ESO Workshop held in Castiglione della Pescaia, Italy, 13-17 September 2004. The proceedings cover topics from chemical abundances in the different components of the Milky Way and in local group galaxies, via observational and theoretical papers on mixing in stars to big bang nucleosynthesis and galaxy formation and evolution. As all volumes in this series of ESO Astrophysics Symposia this one gives a comprehensive state-of-the-art overview of the forefront of research in its area. It is thus a valuable reference for both students specializing in the field and researchers alike
Gamma-ray bursts in the afterglow era : proceedings of the international workshop, held in Rome, Italy, 17-20 October 2000 by Workshop on "Gamma-Ray Bursts in the Afterglow Era"( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The information received from BeppoSAX, Chandra and other instruments in the last two years has more than doubled the number of samples of Gamma-Ray Bursts localized and followed up for afterglow search. This has also increased the interest of astronomers in GRBs. This book reviews the research of the last two years and covers the global properties of GRBs, GRB afterglows, GRB host galaxies, cosmology using GRBs, and theories for GRBs and their afterglows. Theoretical and observational aspects are presented as well as tools for the analysis of the data

Looking deep in the southern sky : proceedings of the ESO/Australia Workshop, held at Sydney, Australia, 10-12 December 1997 by ESO/ESA/NASA/NSF Conference( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in German and English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The southern hemisphere is undergoing a phase of intense "activity". On one hand, a number of exciting new facilities (ranging from optical and near-infrared to radio and millimeter) are, or will soon be, available. On the other hand, many new deep surveys, covering most of the electromagnetic spectrum, are underway. This will provide large databases and make coordinated radio, infrared and optical projects in the southern hemisphere ever more attractive and significant. With all these new facilities, important progress will be made regarding large-scale structure of the universe, the very early universe and the associated first epoch of galaxy formation. This book presents a collection of papers presented by experts in these fields at a workshop designed to address how southern hemisphere astronomy could best coordinate its efforts to maximise the use of the new generation of 8-10 telescopes in studying the key questions in these fields. It is aimed at research astronomers

Multiple stars across the H-R diagram : proceedings of the ESO Workshop held in Garching, Germany, 12-15 July 2005 by S Hubrig( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stars show a marked tendency to be in systems of different multiplicity, ranging from simple binaries and triples to globular clusters with several 10,000's of stars. The formation and evolution of multiple systems remains a challenging part of astrophysics, and the contributions in this book report on the significant progress that had been made in this research field in the last years. The reader will find a variety of research topics addressed, such as the dynamical evolution in multiple stars, the effects of the environment on multiple system parameters, stellar evolution within multiple stars, multiplicity of massive stars, pre-main sequence and intermediate mass stars, multiplicity of low-mass stars from embedded protostars to open clusters, and brown dwarfs and extrasolar planets in multiples. This book presents the proceedings of the ESO Workshop on Multiple Stars across the H-R Diagram held in the summer of 2005
