Galaxies and cosmology by F Combes( Book )

38 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and French and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mapping the galaxy and nearby galaxies by Keiichi Wada( )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a proceedings book of the symposium "Mapping the Galaxy and nearby Galaxies" held in Ishigaki Island, Okinawa, Japan, on June 25-30, 2006. The symposium focused on mapping the interstellar media and other components in galactic disks, bulges, halos, and central regions of galaxies. Thanks to recent progress in observations using radio interferometers and optical/infrared telescopes in ground and space, our knowledge on structures of our Galaxy and nearby galaxies has been growing for the last decade. Yet we do not fully understand the physics behind the observational results
Dynamics of galaxies and their molecular cloud distributions : proceedings of the 146th Symposium of the International Astronomical Union, held in Paris, France, June 4-9, 1990 by International Astronomical Union( Book )

16 editions published in 1991 in English and German and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Molecular hydrogen in space by International Conference on H2 in Space( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Molecular hydrogen is the most abundant molecule in the Universe. In recent years, advances in theory and laboratory experiments coupled with breakthrough observations with important new telescopes and satellites have revolutionized our understanding of molecular hydrogen in space. It is now possible to address the question of how molecular hydrogen formed in the early Universe and the role it played in the formation of primordial structures. This timely volume presents articles from a host of experts who reviewed this new understanding at an international conference in Paris. This book provides the first multi-disciplinary synthesis of our new understanding of molecular hydrogen. It covers the theory of the physical processes and laboratory experiments, as well as the latest observations. It will therefore be an invaluable reference for all students and researchers in astrophysics and cosmology
The cold universe by A. W Blain( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cold universe is the part of the universe in a cold form close to the background radiation temperature. Until recently, this cold state has been neglected because it is hard to observe, although it must inevitably play a crucial role as the original state of most of the hotter observable objects such as planets, stars, and galaxies. Fortunately, the cold universe currently becomes more and more accessible with newer instruments. This book contains the printed version of the lectures given at the 32nd Saas-Fee Advanced Course "The Cold Universe" by three eminent scientists in the field: Andrew Blain, Francoise Combes and Bruce Draine. Cold objects at cosmological distances, the origin of galaxies, the role of molecules in galaxies, and the physics of the dust in cold clouds are the main topics treated. This book contains an accessible and up-to-date review of the field and should be useful for many years to astronomy students, cosmologists, physicists and researchers

Tracing the ancestry of galaxies : (on the land of our ancestors) : proceedings of the 277th Symposium of the International Astronomical Union held in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, December 13-17, 2010 by International Astronomical Union( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We are living in the golden era of multiwavelength astronomical observations, probing deep areas of the sky. Sophisticated instruments allow us to compare galaxies at high redshifts, when the Universe was only a few hundred millions years old, with the mature nearby galaxies we see today. This is yielding new insights into the mass assembly and the star formation history of galaxies that may, or may not, be compatible with our current theoretical models. IAU Symposium 277 addresses the major open questions concerning the evolution of galaxies, specifically: can we really apply the knowledge gained from low-redshift studies to the high-redshift galaxy populations, given the strong apparent differences in their observed properties? In this volume theorists and observers attempt to reach a common understanding of the puzzles that galaxy research has recently unfolded, largely through the study of galaxy dynamics and their stellar populations at low and high redshifts"--Back cover

Galaxies in 3D across the universe : proceedings of the 309th Symposium of the International Astronomical Union held in Vienna, Austria, July 7-11, 2014 by International Astronomical Union( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

IAU Symposium 309 contains contributions on the timely theme of spatially and energetically resolved properties of galaxies. New technologies in 3D spectroscopy in the optical and near-infrared regimes, and radio interferometry, allow for the first time the efficient mapping of stars, gas and dust in galaxies near and far. This volume demonstrates how detailed measurements of individual objects are complemented by surveys aiming at a full census of galaxies across the local Universe. Reaching out to the limits of the Universe, the evolution of spatially resolved properties is traced throughout our whole cosmic history. In parallel with this, new computer technology and highly advanced algorithms are exploited for detailed simulations to probe the underlying physical and cosmological connections. This volume benefits astronomers and graduate students working in areas relating to galaxy formation and evolution, star formation, dust and stellar populations

Plusieurs scénarios sont envisagés pour expliquer ces paradoxes, parmi lesquels un changement des lois de la gravitation
La matière noire dans l'Univers by F Combes( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in French and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "Grâce aux progrès fulgurants de la cosmologie, nous savons que l'Univers se compose à 5 % de matière ordinaire, dont seulement une infime partie est observable aujourd'hui sous forme d'étoiles et de gaz, et à 95 % de matière noire et d'énergie noire, deux entités qui nous sont encore complètement inconnues. Comment, dans ces conditions, élaborer un scénario de formation des structures pour expliquer l'origine et la dynamique des galaxies ? Cette leçon nous invite à explorer l'énigme la plus mystérieuse de l'astrophysique contemporaine."
