Galactic dynamics by James Binney( Book )

35 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 935 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
Galactic Dynamics : (Second Edition) by James Binney( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 10 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
Contribution à l'étude de la stabilité du problème planétaire des trois-corps by Philippe Robutel( )

1 edition published in 1993 in French and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le but de ce travail est d'obtenir des résultats globaux portant sur la nature des mouvements dans le problème planétaire des trois corps (une étoile et deux planètes). L'étude de la stabilité d'un tel système est abordée suivant deux aspects distincts et complémentaires. Le premier, de nature théorique, se fonde sur une application de la théorie KAM. Après une construction totalement analytique du hamiltonien séculaire obtenue à l'aide d'un manipulateur algébrique, l'application du théorème d'Arnold élaboré en 1963 permet de montrer que presque toutes les conditions initiales conduisent à des trajectoires quasi-périodiques. Ce résultat de stabilité est valable pour des inclinaisons inferieures à un degré et de très faibles masses et excentricités planétaires. Le deuxième aspect de l'étude porte sur la description de la dynamique séculaire des couples planétaires du type Jupiter-Saturne (de masses trop élevées pour être redevables du résultat précèdent). Des méthodes numériques, telle l'analyse en fréquence, montrent que la majeure partie des trajectoires est voisine d'orbites quasi-périodiques, et ce sur un temps comparable à l'âge du système solaire. Une analyse fine (estimation du taux de diffusion) met en évidence que, même au voisinage des résonances séculaires, un tel problème reste très stable. Ainsi il semble qu'en dehors des résonances en moyen-mouvement (qui peuvent nuire considérablement à leur stabilité), les trajectoires de tels systèmes se comportent de manière fortement régulière sur une très longue échelle de temps
Rotation à long terme des planètes : application au basculement d'Uranus by Gwenaël Boué( )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uranus is a special planet because of the large inclination of its spin-axis. The origin of this property is one of the great unanswered questions about the Solar system. The aim of the thesis is to find a collisionless scenario for the tilt of Uranus. In this work, we review the history of the Solar system since its birth in order to see when the tilt could have occured. Then, we evaluate the maximal rate at which Uranus could tilt such that the satellites remain in the equatorial plane. Two different periods in the history of the Solar system appear to be good candidates for the tilt. The first one corresponds to the period when the planets were evolving in a planetesimal disk, and the second one is related to the late migration. In the second case, Uranus can actually tilt without any giant collision. This study is based on general results on the evolution of rigid bodies. The first relates to the lunar problem whose goal is to know the effect of a satellite on the precession motion of its planet. Previously, only two asymptotic cases were solved. From averaging techniques and using a vectorial approach, the effect can be evaluated regardless of the distance of the satellite. Moreover, such a general approach provides a solution that is not unique to the lunar problem. It applies also directly to the study of the rotation of two rigid bodies in gravitational interaction such as binary asteroids. Finally, some tools developed for Uranus have been applied to Saturn case. This has brought new constraints on the late migration. In particular, the migration speed of Neptune should have been slow enough so that Saturn's axis could reach its current inclination
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
