Most widely held works by André Maeder
Star formation by International Astronomical Union( Book )

18 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in 3 languages and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Observational tests of the stellar evolution theory : symposium no. 105 held in Geneva, Switzerland, September 12-16, 1983 by International Astronomical Union( Book )

16 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

18 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 162 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 The articles contain material so far unpublished in the astronomical literature.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
Physics, formation and evolution of rotating stars by André Maeder( Book )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rotation is ubiquitous at each step of stellar evolution, from star formation to the final stages, and it affects the course of evolution, the timescales and nucleosynthesis. Stellar rotation is also an essential prerequisite for the occurrence of Gamma-Ray Bursts. This book examines the basic mechanical and thermal effects of rotation

Planetary systems : detection, formation and habitability of extrasolar planets by Ollivier( Book )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past ten years, the discovery of extrasolar planets has opened a new field of astronomy, and this area of research is rapidly growing, from both the observational and theoretical point of view. The presence of many giant exoplanets in the close vicinity of their star shows that these newly discovered planetary systems are very different from the solar system. New theoretical models are being developed in order to understand their formation scenarios, and new observational methods are being implemented to increase the sensitivity of exoplanet detections." "In the present book, the authors address the question of planetary systems from all aspects. Starting from the facts (the detection of more than 300 extraterrestrial planets), they first describe the various methods used for these discoveries and propose a synthetic analysis of their global properties. They then consider the observations of young stars and circumstellar disks and address the case of the solar system as a specific example, different from the newly discovered systems. Then the study of planetary systems and of exoplanets is presented from a more theoretical point of view. The book ends with an outlook to future astronomical projects, and a description of the search for life on exoplanets. This book addresses students and researchers who wish to better understand this newly expanding field of research."--Jacket
