Most widely held works by Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Astrophysik und Astronomie
The Milky Way as a galaxy by Gerry Gilmore( Book )

18 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Physics of star formation in galaxies by F Palla( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 145 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 The articles contain material so far unpublished in the astronomical literature.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
Computational methods for astrophysical fluid flow by Randall J LeVeque( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and German and held by 138 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
Observational cosmology : eight [sic] advanced course of the Swiss Society of Astronomy and Astrophysics by J. E Gunn( Book )

10 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Deep universe : Saas-Fee Advanced Course 23, lecture notes 1993, Swiss Society for Astrophysics and Astronomy by Allan Sandage( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

High-energy spectroscopic astrophysics by Steven Michael Kahn( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 103 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

Dynamics of young star clusters and associations by Catherine Jane Clarke( Book )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Where do most stars (and the planetary systems that surround them) in the Milky Way form? What determines whether a young star cluster remains bound (such as an open or globular cluster), or disperses to join the field stars in the disc of the Galaxy? These questions not only impact understanding of the origins of stars and planetary systems like our own (and the potential for life to emerge that they represent), but also galaxy formation and evolution, and ultimately the story of star formation over cosmic time in the Universe. This volume will help readers understand our current views concerning the answers to these questions as well as frame new questions that will be answered by the European Space Agency's Gaia satellite that was launched in late 2013.℗ℓThe book contains the elaborated notes of lectures given℗ℓat the 42nd Saas-Fee Advanced Course ℓ́ℓDynamics of Young Star Clusters & Associations" by Cathie Clarke (University of Cambridge) who presents the theory of star formation and dynamical evolution of stellar systems, Robert Mathieu (University of Wisconsin) who discusses the kinematics of star cluster s and associations, and I. Neill Reid (Space Telescope Science Institute) who provides an overview of the stellar populations in the Milky Way and speculates on from whence came the Sun. As part of the Saas-Fee Advanced Course Series, the book offers an in-depth introduction to the field serving as a starting point for Ph. D. research and as a reference work for professional astrophysicists
Star formation in galaxy evolution : connecting numerical models to reality : Saas-Fee Advanced course 43 by Nickolay Y Gnedin( Book )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
