Binary and multiple systems of stars by A. H Batten( Book )

22 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Binary and Multiple Systems of Stars focuses on spectroscopic observational results and interpretations of binaries, and a few of multiple systems. <br>Organized into 10 chapters, this book begins with the basic concepts and terminologies used in the study of binary and multiple systems of stars. Then, the incidence of both star systems is described. Subsequent chapters explore the properties of individual binaries, as well as the evolution and origin of such star system. <br>This book will be a valuable reference material for astronomers, scientists in related fields, as well as graduate stud
Extended atmospheres and circumstellar matter in spectroscopic binary systems. Symposium no. 51 (Struve memorial symposium) held at Parksville, B.C., Canada, 6-12 September, 1972 by A. H Batten( Book )

23 editions published in 1973 in 3 languages and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The proposal to organize a Symposium on circumstellar matter and extended atmo spheres in binary systems was first made by the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory to the Executive Committee of the International Astronomical Union in the summer of 1969. It received the support of the presidents of Commissions 29 (Stellar Spectra), 30 (Radial Velocities), 36 (Stellar Atmospheres), and 42 (Photometric Double Stars). Approval in principle was given by the Executive Committee almost immediately, and the Committee further suggested that the Symposium be officially designated the Struve Memorial Symposium. Final approval was given at the time of the 1970 General Assembly of the Union. when the dates of the Symposium were set for August or September, 1972. The Organizing Committee set up consisted of K.O. Wright (Chairman), A.H. Batten, K.-H. B6hm, A.A. Boyarchuk, G. Larsson-Leander, and M. Plavec. In addition, J. Sahade and F.B. Wood acted as advisory members. Local organization was entrusted to a committee consisting of A.H. Batten, E.K. Lee, and C.D. Scarfe. The final dates selected were September 6-12, 1972, and the Sym posium was held at the Island Hall Hotel, Parksville, B.C., on Vancouver Island some 90 miles from Victoria. The Organizing Committee attempted to arrange a Symposium of the type in which no contributed papers would be presented and discussion would range as widely as possible over the field covered by the six invited review papers
Resolute and undertaking characters : the lives of Wilhelm and Otto Struve by A. H Batten( Book )

13 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wilhelm Struve founded a dynasty of astronomers that lasted into the fifth generation. This book follows the fortunes of the first three generations: Wilhelm himself was an outstanding astronomer and geodesist, famous for his pioneering observations of double stars - observations whose quality had not been surpassed until the development of modern methods of instrumental observational analysis. He is also well known as one of the three men who - almost simultaneously - succeeded in measuring the distance to one of the fixed stars. He founded the great observatory of Pulkovo, just outside modern Leningrad, and was succeeded as Director of the institution by his son Otto, who forms the subject of the second part of the book. Otto, too, was a famous observer of double stars and a great practitioner of the fundamental astronomy of the nineteenth century
Determination of radial velocities and their applications by International Astronomical Union( Book )

Algols : proceedings of the 107th Colloquium of the International Astronomical Union, held in Sidney, B.C., Canada, August 15-19, 1988 by International Astronomical Union( Book )

11 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When leaving the Victoria airport the day before our Colloquium, I saw a van of the Dunsmuir Lodge marked with big letters which I read as "Alcohol Colloquium". I do often make such blunders because of the global, casual, and careless way in which I read various ads, and checked myself quickly to read it correctly as "Algol Colloquium". Millions of fellow citizens could easily make the same mistake, and no apology could be expected. Even I read and hear the word alcohol more frequently than Algol, although I must say that Algols have given me more pleasure and fewer headaches over the years; in that, however, I may be a singularity, and possibly a pitiful one at that. Being appointed Chairman of the Scientific Organizing Committee, I may be deemed to be a purer" Algolist" than other investigators, although my range of active interests is much broader; and the same is true about all the 28 invited speakers and all the other participants of the Colloquium. Our interest are strongly diversified, but there are several good reasons that brought us together at this Colloquium
