Evolution : society, science, and the universe by A. C Fabian( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cutting across boundaries of art and science, evolution is a fundamental process that has beguiled thinkers through the ages. In this collection, thinkers such as Stephen Jay Gould share their own intriguing insights into the nature of evolution
Darwin( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charles Darwin can easily be considered one of the most influential scholars of his time. His thoughts, ideas, research and writings have had a far reaching impact and influence on modern thought in the arts, on society, and in science. With contributions from leading scholars, this collection of essays explores how Darwin's work grew out of the ideas of his time, and how its influence spread to contemporary thinking about creationism, the limits of human evolution and the diversification of living species and their conservation. A full account of the legacy of Darwin in contemporary scholarship and thought. With contributions from Janet Browne, Jim Secord, Rebecca Stott, Paul Seabright, Steve Jones, Sean Carroll, Craig Moritz and John Dupre;. This book derives from a highly successful series of public lectures, revised and illustrated for publication under the editorship of Professor William Brown and Professor Andrew Fabian of the University of Cambridge"--
Origins : the Darwin College lectures( Book )

16 editions published between 1988 and 2005 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Publisher-supplied data) In this volume, a distinguished team of international authorities reports on the latest research on the origins of the most fundamental features of our world. Martin Rees begins the book with a bang, the Big Bang that was the probable start of our universe. The contributors then focus on the origins of the solar system, material complexity and the human species. The volume ends with essays by John Maynard Smith on social behavior, Ernest Gellner on society and John Lyons on language. The first in The Darwin College Lectures, the book is derived from a highly successful series of lively public lectures which have been revised and illustrated for publication under the editorship of Professor A.C. Fabian of the Institute of Astronomy, University of Cambridge
Conflict by Martin Jones( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and Chinese and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conflict, sadly, is part of our everyday life; experienced at home, in the workplace, on our TV screens. But is it an inevitable part of our existence? In this volume, eight experts examine conflict at many levels, from the workings of genes to the evolution of galaxies
Cooling flows in clusters and galaxies by A. C Fabian( Book )

15 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

X-ray astronomers discovered the diffuse gas in clusters of galaxies about 20 years ago. It was later realized that the central gas density in some clusters, and in elliptical galaxies, is so high that radiative cooling is a significant energy loss. The cooling time of the gas decreases rapidly towards the centre of the cluster or galaxy and is less than a Hubble time within the innermost few hundred kiloparsecs. This results in a cooling flow in which the gas density rises in order to maintain pressure to support the weight of the overlying gas. The rate at which mass is deposited by the flow is inferred to be several hundreds of solar masses per year in some clusters. The fraction of clusters in which cooling flows are found may exceed 50 per cent. Small flows probably occur in most normal elliptical galaxies that are not in rich clusters. The implications of this simple phenomenon are profound, for we appear to be witnessing the ongoing formation of the central galaxy. In particular, since most of the gas is undetected once it cools below about 3 million K, it appears to form dark matter. There is no reason why it should be detectable with current techniques if each cooling proton only recombines once and the matter condenses into objects of low mass
Frontiers of X-ray astronomy( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Clusters and superclusters of galaxies by A. C Fabian( Book )

14 editions published between 1992 and 2012 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Clusters and superclusters of galaxies are the largest objects in the Universe. They have been the subject of intense observational studies at a variety of wavelengths, from radio to X-ray which has provoked much theoretical debate and advanced our understanding of the recent evolution of the large-scale structure of the Universe. The current status of the subject is reviewed in this volume by active researchers who lectured at a NATO Advanced Study Institute held in Cambridge, England in July 1991. Much of the material is presented in a pedagogical manner and will appeal to scientists, astronomers and graduate students interested in extragalactic astronomy
Physical processes in hot cosmic plasmas by NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Physical Processes in Hot Cosmic Plasmas( Book )

8 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The X-ray background( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Large scale structures in the universe : Seventeenth Advanced Course of the Swiss Society of Astronomy and Astrophysics by A. C Fabian( Book )

19 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and German and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Life( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Life is a compelling addition to the Darwin College Lecture Series, in which eight distinguished authors each present an essay from their area of expertise devoted to the theme of 'life'. The book forges connections between art, science and the humanities in a vibrant and thought-provoking collection that exposes both conventional and unconventional views on the meaning of life, the enigmatic boundaries between the living and the dead, and what may or may not follow afterwards. This collection arises from the Darwin College Lecture Series of 2012 and includes contributions from eight distinguished scholars, all of whom are held in esteem not only for their research, but also for their ability to communicate their subject to popular audiences"--

Physical Processes in Hot Cosmic Plasmas by W Brinkmann( )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gas at temperatures exceeding one million degrees is common in the Universe. Indeed it is likely that most of the gas in the Universe exists in intergalactic space in this form. Such highly-ionized gas, or plasma, is not restricted to the rarefied densities of intergalactic space, but is also found in clusters of galaxies, in galaxies themselves, in the expanding remnants of exploded stars and at higher densities in stars and the collapsed remains of stars up to the highest densities known, which occur in neutron stars. The abundant lower-Z elements, at least, in such gas are completely ionized and the gas acts as a highly conducting plasma. It is therefore subject to many cooperative phenomena, which are often complicated and ill-understood. Many of these processes are, however, well-studied (if not so well-understood) in laboratory plasmas and in the near environment of the Earth. Astronomers therefore have much to learn from plasma physicists working on laboratory and space plasmas and the parameter range studied by the plasma physicists might in turn be broadened by contact with astronomers. With that in mind, a NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Physical Processes in Hot Cosmic Plasmas was organized and took place in the Eolian Hotel, Vulcano, Italy on May 29 to June 2 1989. This book contains the Proceedings of that Workshop
Black holes : the ultimate abyss( Visual )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nothing psyches up a physicist quite like a black hole, a star that has died and yielded to the gaping maw of gravity. Listen as Stephen Hawking, aided by 3-D animation, explains the concept of space-time and how black holes are formed. Allow yourself to be drawn to the edge of a black hole -- the event horizon -- and imagine what life would be like inside."--Container
