The revised new general catalogue of nonstellar astronomical objects by Jack W Sulentic( Book )

20 editions published between 1973 and 1982 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an updated version of J.L.E. Dreyer's New General Catalogue of Nebulae and Clusters of Stars (1864). In producing this much-needed work, the authors have greatly revised, corrected, and enlarged the following useful information for each entry: NGC identification number; type of object on the Palomar Sky Survey; magnitude of object; source of magnitude; visual appearance of object transcribed from Dreyer; Palomar Sky Survey description of each object; and cross references for RNGC objects.Published 1973

Galaxies in isolation : exploring nature versus nurture : proceedings of a conference held at Granada, Spain 12-15 May 2009( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains the proceedings of the international conference "Galaxies in Isolation: Exploring Nature vs. Nurture" held in Granada Spain May 12-15, 2009. About 120 participants presented fifty oral and nearly sixty poster contributions. The meeting was motivated by the growing interest in the effects of environment and interactions (i.e. "nurture") on galaxy structure and evolution. We can learn something fundamental about the intrinsic properties of galaxies and how they formed from studies of the most isolated galaxies. This was the first conference to focus on the least "nurtured" galaxies in the Universe. Conference topics covered an array of observational and theoretical issues. The conference began by addressing the definition of isolation as well as whether isolated galaxies really exist in significant numbers. Results of past and present searches for isolated galaxies were presented, followed by discussion of the current state of knowledge about isolated galaxy properties. Special consideration was given to the void "problem," to the existence of isolated early-type galaxies, and to the possibility that some isolated ellipticals represent "fossil groups." Sessions were also devoted to modeling "nature vs. nurture" in galaxy formation at both low and high redshift. This volume will be of interest to extragalactic researchers, especially those involved in statistical studies of galaxy properties that could be affected by environment. The volume summarizes the past forty years of research in the field
Fifty years of quasars : from early observations and ideas to future research by Mauro D'Onofrio( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 50th anniversary of the discovery of quasars in 1963 presents an interesting opportunity to ask questions about the current state of quasar research. Formatted as a series of interviews with noted researchers in the field, each of them asked to address a specific set of questions covering topics selected by the editors, this book deals with the historical development of quasar research and discusses how advances in instrumentation and computational capabilities have benefitted quasar astronomy and have changed our basic understanding of quasars. In the last part of the book the interviews address the current topic of the role of quasars in galaxy evolution. They summarise open issues in understanding active galactic nuclei and quasars and present an outlook regarding what future observational facilities both on the ground and in space might reveal. Its interview format, the fascinating topic of quasars and black holes, and the lively recollections and at times controversial views of the contributors make this book both rewarding and a pleasure to read!

Quantifying the fir interaction enhancement in paired galaxies by Cong Xu( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Infrared emission in paired galaxies II : Luminosity functions and far-infrared properties by Cong Xu( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The optical and FIR luminosities and other FIR properties are investigated for pairs of galaxies selected from the Catalog of Isolated Pairs of Galaxies in the Northern Sky. Significant evidence is found for an enhancement in both the optical and FIR emission from galaxies in pairs which can be attributed to interaction-induced star formation activity. The enhancement is seen in the optical luminosity function for all types of pairs, including early-type binaries. At FIR wavelengths, both late-type and mixed morphology pairs show an enhancement in luminosity, FIR-to-optical luminosity ratio, and FIR 60/100 micron color ratio. A significant fraction of these pairs may be involved in direct collisions resulting in the stimulation of excess emission from both pair components."
