Hubble : a new window to the universe by Daniel Fischer( Book )

14 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discribes the steps taken to deploy the Hubble Space Telescope, and uses text and illustrations to describe the information gained so far, including the discovery of the second known supermassive black hole, and the first direct observation of a "core collapse" in a globular cluster
Hubble revisited : new images from the discovery machine by DANIEL; DUERBECK, HILMAR FISCHER( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, a sequel to the authors' popular Hubble: A New Window to the Universe, incorporates the best Hubble shots from recent years and reveals the wealth of new discoveries that these images, together with other recent developments in space and ground-based astronomy, have led to."--Jacket
Morphological cosmology : proceedings of the XIth Cracow Cosmological School held in Cracow, Poland, August 22-31, 1988 by P Flin( Book )

15 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Large-scale structures in the universe are becoming ever more important in modern astrophysics. This volume is dedicated to the memory of the late astrophysicist Fritz Zwicky and presents 34 lectures dealing with observational and theoretical aspects of the morphology of the universe. Reports on the distribution, properties and evolution of groups, clusters and superclusters of galaxies, as well as theoretical attempts to explain these findings using such ideas as biased galaxy formation and cold dark matter, are presented here for researchers and students of astronomy and astrophysics
Large-scale structures in the universe : observational and analytical methods by Waltraut Carola Seitter( Book )

18 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book will certainly be considered an important reference for astronomers and astrophysicists handling large amounts of data in observational and theoretical approaches to the large scale structures in the universe. The contributions are written with an emphasis on methods. The volume contains among many other topics recent observational results on redshift surveys of clusters and distributions of galaxies and quasars, together with articles on the importance of these findings for future standards and for theoretical predictions. A long historical chapter serves as an introduction. This mixture of textbook and review is aimed at the newcomer to the field as well as at the specialist. Graduate students will find it useful for additional reading
Flares and flashes : proceedings of IAU Colloquium no. 151, held in Sonneberg, Germany, 5-9 December 1994 by International Astronomical Union( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributions to the 151st IAU Colloquium cover different fields of recent research, observational as well as theoretical, on solar and stellar flares ranging from radio up to gamma-ray wavelengths. A special chapter is devoted to all-sky monitoring and, finally, the excerpts of a round-table discussion present the reader with an interesting outlook on future developments. This book is therefore a unique source for those who want to get a complete picture of this fascinating part of modern astrophysics
Proceedings of the Galactic Center Workshop 2002 : the central 300 parsecs of the Milky Way by Angela S Cotera( )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hosted by Gemini Observatory during the week of November 3-8 in Hawaii. Called 'The Central 300 Parsecs, ' the conference was sponsored by several observatories on Mauna Kea to stimulate discussions on the galactic core. The conference was held at the Keauhou Beach Resort in Kailua-Kona, on the west side of the Big Island."--Http://
A reference catalogue and atlas of galactic novae by Hilmar W Duerbeck( Book )

10 editions published between 1981 and 1987 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

4. Census of the Catalogue The catalogue contains information on 277 objects. 137 (50%) of them are stars whose outburst spectra or unambiguous mInImUm characteristics classify them as novae beyond doubt. 123 of them could be identified at minimum. 78 (28 %) are stars with amplitudes and light curve forms which makes nova classifi cation likely. 60 of them could be identified at minimum. Thus, 78 % ofthe objects in this catalogue are confirmed and suspected classical novae. 16 (6%) have properties compatible with both novae and related objects. 15 are identified at minimum. Furthermore, the catalogue and atlas contains data on 12 (4 %) dwarf novae of long cycle length or suspected dwarf novae for which only one outburst has been observed. Examples are WZ Sge and CI Gern. 6 (2%) recurrent novae or suspected recurrent novae are listed. Examples are T CrB and AS Psc. 6 (2%) X-ray novae are listed. Examples are V616 Mon and KY TrA. 6 (2%) symbiotic stars and symbiotic novae are listed. Examples are RT Ser and V352 Aql. 11 (4 %) Mira stars or suspected Mira stars, which at some time were believed to be novae, are listed. Examples are V607 Aql and V927 Sgr
Der Ursprung des Universums für Dummies : [die kleine Geschichte des großen Knalls] by Stephen Pincock( )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in German and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Es ist groß, dunkel und im wahrsten Sinn des Wortes maßlos: das Universum. Geht es um das Universum und seinen Ursprung, geraten Naturwissenschaften und Philosophie schnell an ihre Grenzen. Trotzdem oder vielleicht auch gerade deshalb gibt es hier viel Spannendes zu berichten. Wie entstehen Sterne, Planeten und Galaxien, wie wirken die Naturkräfte, was ist dunkle Materie, existiert das Universum ewig? Das sind nur einige der Fragen, auf die Sie in diesem Buch eine verständliche Antwort bekommen
