Europe's quest for the universe : ESO and the VLT, ESA and other projects by Lodewijk Woltjer( )

9 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The large European instruments developed for observing the Universe, from the Sun and planets to its most remote reaches, form the principal subject of this book, addresses a wide audience: astronomers and space scientists, students, politicians, amateur astronomers and the educated public
Surviving 1,000 centuries : can we do it? by R.-M Bonnet( )

15 editions published in 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The circumstances that will shape the long-term future of our planet will be constrained by what is physically possible and what is not. This full color book provides a quantitative view of our civilization over the next 100,000 years, in comparison to the 40-60,000 years it took for modern humans to emerge from Africa, on the basis of contemporary scientific and technological knowledge. The evolution of the Earth's atmosphere and the origin of water are highlighted as the most important factors for the emergence and the development of life." "The authors consider both cosmic and natural hazards, pointing out that scientific information provided by satellites and communication systems on the ground could prevent many unnecessary casualties by forward planning and the installation of elementary precautions. The Earth's evolving climate is considered, showing how greenhouse gases have played an important role in the past climate, whereas human industrial and agricultural emissions will greatly impact our future."--book jacket

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 471 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The distribution and motion of interstellar matter in galaxies; proceedings of a conference held at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, New Jersey, April 10 to 20, 1961 by Lodewijk Woltjer( Book )

Active galactic nuclei by Roger D Blandford( Book )

22 editions published between 1990 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starting with this volume, the Lecture Notes of the renowned Advanced Courses of the Swiss Society for Astrophysics and Astronomy will be published annually. In each course, three extensive lectures given by leading experts in their respective fields cover different and essential aspects of the subject. The 20th course, held at Les Diablerets in April 1990, dealt with current research on active galactic nuclei; it represents the most up-to-date views on the subject, presented with particular regard for clarity. The previous courses considered a wide variety of subjects, beginning with "Theory of Stellar Athmospheres" in 1971 and ending with "The Milky Way as a Galaxy" in 1989. The Lecture Notes of these Saas-Fee Courses appeared as publications of the Geneva Observatory, from which they can still be ordered (chemin des Maillettes 51, CH-1290 Sauverny, Switzerland)
Quasars, AGNs, and related research across 2000 : conference on the occasion of L. Woltjer's 70th birthday : held at the Accademia nazionale dei Lincei, Rome, Italy 3-5 May 2000 by Lodewijk Woltjer( Book )

9 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The proceedings of the international conference held in honour of Lodewijk Woltjer focus on the physics, origin and space distribution of AGNs and quasars and their relationship to the environment, a very wide subject which has attracted much of Prof. Woltjer's research interest. A number of lectures were also dedicated to reviewing the recent observational advances and those that may be attained by the introduction of new and powerful astronomical instrumentation both from the ground and from space, in recognition of the central role played by L. Woltjer in the promotion of ESO VLT and of his involvement in shaping ESA's space programme Horizon 2000+."--Jacket

LES MILLE ET UNE NUITS DE LA SUPERNOVA SN 1987A. CONTRIBUTION AUX OBSERVATIONS DANS L'INFRAROUGE ENTRE 1 ET 20 MICRONS by PATRICE BOUCHET( Book )

DEPUIS SA DECOUVERTE, LA SUPERNOVA SN 1987A EST OBSERVEE REGULIEREMENT A LA SILLA (ESO) DANS LE DOMAINE INFRAROUGE DU SPECTRE. LES OBSERVATIONS PHOTOMETRIQUES ET SPECTROPHOTOMETRIQUES OBTENUES ENTRE 1 ET 20 MICRONS JUSQU'AU JOUR 1316 SONT PRESENTEES. CES OBSERVATIONS PERMETTENT DE CALCULER LA LUMINOSITE BOLOMETRIQUE DE LA SUPERNOVA ET D'EN ETUDIER LA VARIATION EN FONCTION DU TEMPS: IL EST MONTRE QUE JUSQU'AU JOUR 900, LA DESINTEGRATION RADIOACTIVE DU COBALT PEUT, SEULE, RENDRE COMPTE DU BUDGET ENERGETIQUE OBSERVE, MAIS QUE PAR LA SUITE, LA CONSIDERATION D'UNE SOURCE D'ENERGIE SUPPLEMENTAIRE DEVIENT NECESSAIRE. LES OBSERVATIONS SONT AUSSI UTILISEES POUR L'ETUDE DES CARACTERISTIQUES DES POUSSIERES QUI SE SONT CONDENSEES DANS L'EJECTA AU JOUR 500 ENVIRON, ET POUR L'ANALYSE DE L'EVOLUTION DES PRINCIPALES SIGNATURES SPECTRALES, PROVENANT DE RAIES ATOMIQUES (HYDROGENE, SILICIUM, NICKEL, FER ET COBALT) ET DE BANDES MOLECULAIRES (MONOXYDE DE CARBONE ET MONOXYDE DE SILICIUM).
