Atlas of cometary forms: structures near the nucleus by Jürgen Rahe( Book )

11 editions published between 1958 and 1969 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reproductions of drawings made from visual observations were made; this makes an interesting comparison. The third and largest section of the book takes an in-depth look at three of the brightest comets of this century: Comet Morehouse 1908 III, Comet Halley 1910 II, and Comet Humason 1962 VIII. The final part of the atlas consists of photographs of six additional comets, in which the authors "Illustrate the effect of telescopic exposure time and of plate and filter characteristics upon the appearance of a comet." Consequently, an historical perspective on cometary research can be gained from this book as well

Double stars, physical properties, and generic relations : proceedings of IAU Colloquium no. 80, held at Lembang, Java, 3-7 June 1983 by Bambang Hidayat( Book )

10 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bosscha Observatory in Lembang, Java, Indonesia, celebrated in 1983 its 60th anniversary. Since its foundation, the physical properties of binary systems have formed a major research topic of this observatory. Until 1970, the study of visual binaries and the determination of orbits received most emphasis. Since then, also the evolution of close binary systems, such as X-ray binaries, Wolf-Rayet binaries and binary pulsars, has been researched with priority in Lembang. It seemed thus appropriate that a Colloquium devoted to the study of binary systems be held in Lembang at the time of the Observatory's anniversary. In the Colloquium, the role of wide double (and multiple) systems received special emphasis - not only because of the long tradition of visual binary research at Lembang; but also because their role in documenting stellar evolution has been largely overlooked in recent decades, and needs to be brought into focus with the information forthcoming from close binaries. The Colloquium covered the physical properties of visual as well as close binary systems, and their generic relations, in the broadest possible sense. It was sponsored by the International Astronomical Union as IAU Colloquium No. 80 ('Double Stars, Physical Properties and Generic Relations'). After the official opening ceremony, the meeting started with a discussion on the future of astronomy in Asia. The scientific sessions began with the 'V. Bappu Memorial Lecture on the Evolution of Binary Systems', presented by Z. Kopal
Planetary systems : formation, evolution, and detection : proceedings of the first international conference, held in Pasadena, California on December 8-10, 1992 by Bernard F Burke( )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Are there other planetary systems like ours? Other planets like ours? Is there life elsewhere in the Universe?' So asks Dr. Lew Allen Jr. in the Foreword. In December of 1992, theorists, observers, and instrument builders gathered at the California Institute of Technology to discuss the search for answers to these questions. The International Conference, entitled 'Planetary Systems: Formation, Evolution, and Detection' and supported through NASA's newly formed TOPS (Toward Other Planetary Systems) program, was the first of a series of conferences uniting researchers across disciplines and political boundaries to share thoughts and information on planetary systems. The conference was sponsored by NASA, hosted by JPL at Caltech, and endorsed by the 1992 International Space Year Association. <br/> These proceedings include discussions of topics ranging from stellar, disk, and planetary formation to new ways of searching for other stellar systems containing planets. The authors represent a wide range of nationalities, disciplines, and points of view. The second international conference took place in December of 1993. <br/>
Comparative planetology with an earth perspective : proceedings of the first international conference held in Pasadena, California, June 6-8, 1994 by Moustafa T Chahine( )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume identifies the similarities and differences in the processes of formation and evolution of all planets in the solar system. By comparing common processes and features of the planets, including Earth, we are better able to understand Earth as a planet, and the evolutionary processes that have led to its present state. As a result of these studies, we will acquire a better understanding of other planets, such as Venus and Mars. The results can then be iterated to achieve a common consensus. The prediction of future evolution is a definite ultimate goal. Also recommended as a reference source for graduate students in the planetary sciences who are interested in comparative studies of the planets
Cataclysmic variables : recent multi-frequency observations and theoretical developments : proceedings of IAU Colloquium no. 93, held in Bamberg, F.R.G., June 16-19-1986 by Jeremias Drexel( )

12 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent advances in observational and theoretical efforts in understanding the nature of cataclysmic variables had reached such maturity that there existed a strong, shared feeling among the workers in this field that an international colloquium sponsored by the International Astronomical Union would be timely. To be more specific, this was due primarily to the accumulation of the new data from satellite observatories, such as the International Ultraviolet Observatory (IUE) and EXOSAT, as well as ground-based optical and radio telescopes, and the advances in modeling the putative accretion disks and the thermo-nuclear run-away phenomena in the vinicity of the white dwarf stars in cataclysmic variables. A series of workshops on this subject held in North America over the past several years and that held in Europe in 1985 had all contributed to the advances in our knowledge that led to IAU Colloguium No. 93, held in Bamberg from the 16th to 19th of June 1986. In all, 157 astronomers from 27 countries participated in this conference. Judging from the papers presented, both invited and contributed, and from the enthusiasm seen in discussions, the meeting was indeed a success
Astrometric binaries : an international conference to commemorate the birth of Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel, 1784-1846 by Zdeněk Kopal( )

5 editions published in 1985 in English and Dutch and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the past years, a number of international astronomical conferences were held at the Remeis-Observatory in Bamberg, four of them sponsored by the International Astronomical Union. The first meeting was organized in 1959 and dealt with Variable Stars, the last one was held in 1981 and focussed on 'Binary and Multiple Stars as Tracers of Stellar Evolution'. The present conference was organized to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel, who was born in Minden on July 22, 1784, and died in Konigsberg on March 17, 1846. When the plan for an international conference on astrometric binaries was presented to several colleagues, we received enthusiastic support and decided to pursue the idea. A Scientific Organizing Committee was soon established, consisting of: Z. Kopal Manchester, u.K.S.M. Gong Nanjing, China (Chairman) M. Grewing Tiibingen, F.R.G.V. Abalakin Pulkovo, U.S.S.R.P. v. d. Kamp Amsterdam, Netherlands J. Dommanget Uccle, Belgium M. Kitamura Tokyo, Japan M.G. Fracastoro Torino, Italy J. Rahe Bamberg, F.R.G.W. Fricke Heidelberg, F.R.G. Ya. Yatskiv Kiev, U.S.S.R.E.H. Geyer Bonn, F.R.G. The meeting took place in Bamberg at the Remeis-Observatory, Astronomical Institute of the University Erlangen-Nurnberg, from June l3 to 15, 1984. The following institutions generously supported the meeting: Deutsche Forschungs gemeinschaft, Bonn; Stadt Bamberg; Universitat Bamberg; Universitat Erlangen Nurnberg; University of Manchester

Comets in the post-Halley era : in part based on reviews presented at the 121st colloquium of the International Astronomical Union, held in Bamberg, Germany, April 24-28, 1989 by R. L Newburn( )

8 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comets are always very impressive phenomena. Their appearances at regular, but mostly irregular, times excite people who see them. Astronomers have the obvious advantage of being able to see more of comets, and to study them. Their enthusiasm is reflected in the 50 papers in this book, written by more than 90 experts. <br/> The reviews in this book clearly describe a landmark in the history of cometary studies. Knowledge gathered up to and including Comet Halley are presented in two volumes. The first volume is about general aspects of observing and studying comets, where they originate and how their evolution develops. <br/> The second volume goes into the details of what a comet is: the nucleus, the coma, cometary dust, plasmas and magnetic fields. The book ends with a reflection by Fred Whipple about Comets in the Post-Halley Era. <br/> The book discusses all aspects of comets and is therefore suitable for use in graduate level courses. All astronomers and geophysicists interested in comets will find very useful and well-presented information in this book. <br/>
The three Galileos : the man, the spacecraft, the telescope : proceedings of the conference held in Padova, Italy on January 7-10, 1997 by Cesare Barbieri( )

3 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three diverse observers, all named Galileo, have studied the planet Jupiter and its wonderful moons, its exotic atmosphere, its tremendous magnetic field, and its gossamer rings. This book is a unique combination of history and science, presenting the proceedings of a conference honoring the achievements of Galileo the man and Galileo the spacecraft, and the promise of the new Italian National Telescope. Insights into the life and times of Galileo Galilei introduce the book, followed by overviews of the Galileo mission, spacecraft, navigation, telecommunications, and early science results. The book concludes with a series of papers describing the Italian National Telescope, Galileo. The book will appeal to a broad range of readers searching for an overview of the Galileo mission and telescope. Twenty-four pages of color and high-resolution black and white images are included. Also included is the text of an audience with Pope John Paul II. The Pope's audience and speech were an acknowledgement of the importance of science, and of the Vatican's changing perspective on ethics and morality in science

If Zdenek Kopal Department of Astronomy University of Manchester Your Magnificences, my Lord Mayor, ladies and gentlemen! It is a great pleasure for me to respond, on behalf of your foreign guests, to your gracious words of welcome; and to thank you for the wonderful reception which you nave extended to us. The city of Bamberg and its Remeis Sternwarte nas indeed been renowned allover the world for a great many years - as the place where your Observatory's first director, Professor Ernst Hartwig (1851-1923) - in addition to his other titles to fame - collaborated (with Gustav Muller of Potsdam) on the construc tion of the monumental Geschichte und Literatur des Lirhtwechsels der Veranderlichen Sterne, which since 1918 has (together with its sub sequent continuation) been a veritable vade-mecum of a1l students of variable stars; where the second director, Professor Ernst Zinner (1886-19]~ prepared his valuable Katalog der Verdachtigen Veranderlichen Sterne (192@ which safeguarded many an astronomer (including the present speaker in the days of his innocence) from premature discovery claims; and whose third director, Professor Wolfgang Strohmeier, initiated in 1959 the tradition of the international colloquia of which ours is the latest successor. It is indeed a great pleasure to welcome Professor Strohmeier - now Emeritus - among us; and to congratulate him on the grace with which he is carrying his years
