The amazing unity of the universe : and its origin in the big bang by Edward Peter Jacobus van den Heuvel( )

13 editions published in 2016 in 3 languages and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the first chapters the author describes how our knowledge of the position of Earth in space and time has developed, thanks to the work of many generations of astronomers and physicists. He discusses how our position in the Galaxy was discovered, and how in 1929, Hubble uncovered the fact that the Universe is expanding, leading to the picture of the Big Bang. He then explains how astronomers have found that the laws of physics that were discovered here on Earth and in the Solar System (the laws of mechanics, gravity, atomic physics, electromagnetism, etc.) are valid throughout the Universe. This is illustrated by the fact that all matter in the Universe consists of atoms of the same chemical elements that we know on Earth. This unity is all the more surprising when one realizes that in the original Big Bang theory, different parts of the Universe could never have communicated with each other. It then is a mystery how they could have shared the same physical laws. This problem was solved by the introduction of the idea of inflation, a phase of extremely rapid expansion of the Universe during the first fraction of a second following the Big Bang. The author explains how the unity of the Universe finds its origin in the Big Bang prior to inflation. The book addresses the many fundamental questions about the Universe and its content from the perspective of the Big Bang: the formation of structure in the Universe, the questions of the mysterious dark matter and dark energy, the possibilities of other Universes (the Multiverse) and of the existence of intelligent life elsewhere in the Universe."--Page 4 of cover

Observational and theoretical issues of interacting binaries was the topic of the 22nd of the renowned Advanced Course of the Swiss Society for Astrophysics and Astronomy. The three contributions by outstanding experts collected in this book deal with observations, symbiotic stars, cataclysmic variables, massive binaries and X-ray binaries thus filling a gap in the existing literature. The articles review the state of the art and address both students and researchers. The accessible and didactic approach makes the book a valuable source for future work on interacting binary stars whose study is essential for a better understandingof stellar evolution
Compact stars in binaries : proceedings of the 165th symposium of the International Astronomical Union, held in the Hague, the Netherlands, August 15-19, 1994 by International Astronomical Union( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on the formation, structure and evolution of binary stars with at least one compact component (i.e. a white dwarf, neutron star, or black hole), has in recent years been one of the most active areas in astrophysics. This volume gives an overview of recent progress in this area, with particular emphasis on the evolutionary connection that may exist between these binaries as observed in a variety of wavelength bands, in particular in the radio and X-ray bands. Among the subjects covered are Type Ib/c supernovae and supernovae in binaries; common-envelope evolution, coalescence of binaries and Thorne-Zytkow objects; gravitational waves from compact bodies; binary and millisecond radio pulsars; planets around pulsars; the pulsar velocity distribution; transient X-ray sources and black-hole binaries; quasi-periodic oscillations in X-ray sources; supersoft X-ray sources and their possible connection with Type I supernovae; soft gamma-ray repeaters; gamma-ray bursts and binary neutron star mergers
Black holes in binaries and galactic nuclei : diagnostics, demography, and formation : proceedings of the ESO workshop held at Garching, Germany, 6-8 September 1999, in honour of Riccardo Giacconi by ESO Workshop in Honour of Riccardo Giacconi( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The observational evidence for the existence of black holes has grown significantly over recent decades. Stellar-mass black holes are detected as X-ray sources in binary systems, while supermassive black holes, with masses more than a million times the mass of the Sun, lurk in the nuclei of galaxies. These proceedings provide a useful and up-to-date overview of the observations of black holes in binaries, in the center of the Milky Way, and in the nuclei of galaxies, presented by leading expert astronomers. Special attention is given to the formation (including the recent evidence from gamma-ray bursts), physical properties, and demographics of black holes
X-ray binaries and recycled pulsars by Edward Peter Jacobus van den Heuvel( Book )

15 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The motivation for the Workshop on which this book is based was the discovery in recent years of a large number of binary and millisecond radio pulsars, in the galactic disk as well as in globular star clusters, the oldest stellar systems in our galaxy. These discoveries have revolutionized our thinking on many aspects concerning the interior structure and evolution of neutron stars, and have revived the interest in the study of neutron star physics in general. In this book some three dozen of the world's experts in the field of radio pulsars, X-ray binaries, stellar evolution, neutron star interoirs and stellar dynamics review the latest observational discoveries as well as the current theoretical thinking on the formation and physics of binary X-ray sources and of the binary and millisecond pulsars. These include discoveries such as that of the eleven millisecond pulsars in the globular cluster 47 Tucanae, the relativistic effects in the new double neutron star system PSR 1534+12 and spectacular results from Germany's ROSAT X-Ray Observatory

Timing Neutron Stars by H Ögelman( )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea for organizing an Advanced Study Institute devoted largely to neutron star timing arose independently in three places, at Istanbul, Garching and Amster dam; when we became aware of each other's ideas we decided to join forces. The choice of a place for the Institute, in Turkey, appealed much to us all, and it was then quickly decided that Qe{sect}me would be an excellent spot. When the preparations for the Institute started, early in 1987, we could not have guessed how timely the subject actually was. Of course, the recently dis covered QPO phenomena in accreting neutron stars and half a dozen binary and millisecond radio pulsars known at the time formed one of the basic motivations for organizing this Institute. But none of us could have guessed that later in 1987 we were to witness the wonderful discovery of the binary and millisecond radio pulsars in globular clusters and, -as if Nature wished to give us a special present for this the discovery in March 1988 of a millisecond pulsar in an eclipsing binary Institu- system, the first eclipsing radio pulsar ever found, and the second fastest in the sky! The discussion of this pulsar, its formation and fate was one of the highlights of this meeting, especially since its discoverers were among the participants of the Institute and could provide us with first-hand information

De wonderbaarlijke eenheid van het heelal : en de oorsprong hiervan in de oerknal by Edward Peter Jacobus van den Heuvel( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in Dutch and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sinds 1965 weten we dat het heelal ongeveer 14 miljard jaar geleden is ontstaan vanuit een onvoorstelbaar dichte en hete toestand: de oerknal. ?De wonderbaarlijke eenheid van het heelal? beschrijft hoe dit beeld van de geschiedenis van het heelal sindsdien werd bevestigd door talloze waarnemingen vanaf de aarde en met ruimtetelescopen. Het blijkt dat dankzij de oerknal het universum een wonderbaarlijke eenheid vormt, met overal dezelfde natuurwetten, die maken dat we het kunnen bestuderen en zijn geschiedenis kunnen ontrafelen. En dankzij die eenheid kunnen we op zinvolle wijze nadenken over vragen zoals: is er ook elders intelligent leven? En bestaan er meerdere universums? Het boek benadrukt de nauwe verbondenheid tussen het heelal en de ontwikkeling van het leven op aarde. Ook behandelt het de aanwijzingen voor het bestaan van de mysterieuze donkere materie en donkere energie, die tezamen het overgrote deel van de massa-energie van de kosmos vertegenwoordigen, maar waarvan de aard en oorzaak behoren tot de grootste onopgeloste problemen van de hedendaagse natuurkunde. ?De wonderbaarlijke eenheid van het heelal? is een geactualiseerde uitgave van de tweede druk van het boek ?Oerknal? (2012), waarvan in 2016 een Engelse vertaling is verschenen
