The sun, solar analogs and the climate by Joanna D Haigh ( )
7 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book presents the lecture notes of the 34th Saas-Fee Advanced Course "The Sun, Solar Analogs and the Climate" given by leading scientists in the field. Emphasis is on the observed variability of the Sun and the present understanding of the variability's origin as well as its impact on the Earth's climate. The solar variability is then studied in the broader context of solar-type stars, allowing for better understanding of the solar-activity cycle and the magnetic activity in general." "This book provides an accessible and up-to-date introduction to the field for graduate students and serves as a modern source of reference for active researchers in this field."--Jacket
High-energy spectroscopic astrophysics by Steven Michael Kahn ( )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"After three decades of intense research in X-ray and gamma-ray astronomy, the time was ripe to summarize basic knowledge on X-ray and gamma-ray spectroscopy for interested students and researchers ready to become involved in new high-energy missions. This volume exposes both the scientific basics and modern methods of high-energy spectroscopic astrophysics. The emphasis is on physical principles and observing methods rather than a discussion of particular classes of high-energy objects, but many examples and new results are included in the three chapters as well."--Jacket
The Milky Way as a galaxy by Gerry Gilmore ( Book )
10 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Solar and stellar dynamos by Paul Charbonneau ( )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book presents a thorough, step-by-step introduction to solar and stellar dynamos. It offers an overview of the major challenges in understanding stellar magnetic fields and their evolution in terms of various dynamo models
Computational methods for astrophysical fluid flow by Randall J LeVeque ( Book )
7 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and German and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Four lectures lead the reader from basic numerical methods for solving hyperbolic partial differential equations to the application of complex simulation codes to selected astrophysical problems. The text highlights the powerful capabilities, the use, and the pitfalls of computational astrophysics. Difficult topics pertaining to astrophysical problem solving, such as gravitation, magnetic fields, reactive flow, and relativity, are addressed. Two lectures are devoted to radiation hydrodynamics. They treat the derivation of the basic equations and numerical methods. This book will be useful to students and researchers in astrophysics and applied mathematics
Physics of star formation in galaxies by F Palla ( Book )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book begins with a historical introduction, "Star Formation: The Early History", that presents new material of interest for students and historians of science. This is followed by two long articles on "Pre-Main-Sequence Evolution of Stars and Young Clusters" and "Observations of Young Stellar Objects". These articles on the fascinating problem of star formation from interstellar matter give a thorough overview of present-day theories and observations. The articles contain material so far unpublished in the astronomical literature. The book addresses graduate students and can be used as a textbook for advanced courses in stellar astrophysics
Galaxies : interactions and induced star formation by R. C Kennicutt ( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume contains the written versions of the lectures given at the 26th course of the renowned Saas-Fee series. The book represents a comprehensive and up-to-date review of the field of galaxy interaction. Nowadays, galaxies are no longer seen as immutable objects: they evolve, interact, merge, blaze, and reshape. Dynamic forces can induce powerful stellar activity able to transform the matter composition and morphology of galaxies. The lectures included in this book aim at a better understanding of these remarkable and fascinating phenomena. Though the book is intended for graduate students and young post-docs in astrophysics, it contains more advanced and original material, as well as historical perspectives, which will be of great interest to experts and astronomy teachers also
The Deep universe : Saas-Fee Advanced Course 23, lecture notes 1993, Swiss Society for Astrophysics and Astronomy by Allan Sandage ( Book )
4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book provides a first-hand account of modern cosmology, written by three celebrated astronomers renowned for their excellence in both research and teaching. The central theme of the book, the deep Universe, is approached in three truly complementary ways: as a coherent and smooth theory embracing the evolution of the Universe from its original radiations emerging from the hot Big Bang to the present structures of matter; as a meandering, rough road paved by our observations of stars, galaxies, and clusters; and in terms of how these approaches have been gradually developed and intertwined in the historical process that led to the modern science of cosmology. The book is written for graduate students in astrophysics but is also of interest to professional astronomers and particle physicists
