8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
One approach to learning about stellar populations is to study them at three different levels of resolution. First in our own Galaxy; secondly from nearby galaxies where stars can still be resolved; and thirdly in remote galaxies in which the stellar population can only be studied in integrated light. This IAU Symposium covered the entire range of galaxies in its study of their stellar populations. Interspersed with theoretical papers, the wealth of observational results provides an important state-of-the-art presentation of the progress that has been made in this field

Windows on galaxies : proceedings of the Sixth Workshop of the Advanced School of Astronomy of the Ettore Majorana Centre for Scientific Culture, Erice, Italy, May 21-31, 1989 by Giuseppina Fabbiano( Book )
5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Along with the traditional optical window, many new windows have been opened on galaxies in the last two decades, made possible by new developments in groundbased detectors and by space missions that allow detection of photons that are otherwise absorbed by the Earth's atmosphere. Galaxies can now be observed in the radio, submillimeter, IR, optical, UV, X- and gamma-ray bands, each window allowing us to learn more about galactic components and properties. These developments have also imposed the view that a deeper understanding of even normal galaxies requires a panchromatic approach, making use of all of the data gathered from the different windows to synthesize a comprehensive physical image of these complex astronomical systems. <em>Windows on Galaxies</em> presents a comprehensive view of galaxies through all the available windows, bringing together both theoretical and experimental approaches in the form of a series of reviews reporting the most recent developments complemented by contributed talks and discussions. <br/> TEXT NO. 2 <br/> The sixth workshop of the Advanced School of Astronomy examined galaxies through all available wavelength windows. Over the last twenty years, new wavelength windows have been opened in astronomy which have created many new possibilities for the observation of the properties of galaxies. The outcome of the meeting clearly stated that the approach towards the studying of galaxies should be <em>panchromatic</em>. <br/> Each window, from radio to gamma-rays, shows different components, and a synthesis of this knowledge presents astronomers with a comprehensive physical image of these astronomical systems: star formation, evolution of galaxies, molecular contents, gas flows, interstellar matter and properties of galaxies in the several wavelength fields are discussed in this volume. <br/>
Deep fields : proceedings of the ESO Workshop, held at Garching, Germany, 9-12 October 2000 by ESO workshop( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is a synopsis of modern deep-field astronomy, based on the powerful telescopes and instruments developed in recent years. It is organized along topical themes, such as the extragalactic background radiation at different wavelengths, the evolution of galaxies, the history of star formation, the nature of absorbers, the reionization of the intergalactic medium, the validity of photometric redshifts, gravitational lensing, and clustering of galaxies. Stellar and substellar objects were not neglected, however, and one session was devoted to nearby bodies such as trans-Neptunian solar system objects, brown dwarfs, and stars with special characteristics
From extrasolar planets to cosmology : the VLT Opening Symposium : proceedings of the ESO symposium held at Antofagasta, Chile, 1-4 March 1999 by The VLT opening symposium( Book )
6 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This symposium was dedicated to science opportunities with the VLT. All major areas of astronomical research were discussed in the plenary sessions, ranging from where we stand in cosmology to the new frontiers in the solar system. The workshops published in this volume focussed on different ways of finding clusters of galaxies at high redshift, on gravitational lensing by distant compact clusters, on the use of stellar populations as distance, age or abundance indicators, and on the extraordinary progress made in the discovery of extrasolar planets. This book affords a glimpse of what will be at the center of astrophysical research in the forthcoming decade. It is addressed to researchers and graduate students
The mass of galaxies at low and high redshift : proceedings of the European Southern Observatory and Universitäts-Sternwarte München workshop held in Venice, Italy, 24-26 October 2001 ( Book )
6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Measuring the masses of galaxies as a function of redshift is perhaps one of the most challenging open issues in current astronomical research. The evolution of the baryonic and dark matter components of galaxies is not only a critical test of the hierarchical formation paradigm, but ultimately also provides new clues on the complex interplay between star formation, the cooling and heating of gas and galaxy merging processes. This book reviews current techniques to measure the baryonic (stellar) and dark masses of nearby galaxies, and focusses on ongoing attempts to measure theses same quantities in galaxies at higher and higher redshifts. It also gives room to future perspectives, with special emphasis on new survey projects and satellite missions
Galaxy scaling relations : origins, evolution, and applications : proceedings of the ESO workshop held at Garching, Germany, 18-20 November 1996 ( Book )
6 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is part of the ESO conference series meant to survey the current status of different areas of astronomical research and explore science opportunities with the European Very Large Telescope (VLT). The research presented focuses on the origins, evolution and applications of galaxy scaling relations. Reviews of the properties and scaling relations of local galaxies and several reports of recent results from observations of high redshift galaxies using the Hubble Space Telescope and the Keck Telescope are also included. Current theoretical efforts to explain the origin of the observed scaling relations and the contraints imposed by the new data, as well as the use of galaxy--galaxy lensing to probe the scaling properties of dark matter halos are investigated. The book includes contributions that consider the use of the scaling relations to measure distance of galaxies and map the peculiar velocity field of galaxies in the nearby universe, as well as the constraints imposed on cosmological models from the analysis of cosmic flows
