Black holes in binaries and galactic nuclei : diagnostics, demography, and formation : proceedings of the ESO workshop held at Garching, Germany, 6-8 September 1999, in honour of Riccardo Giacconi by ESO Workshop in Honour of Riccardo Giacconi( Book )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The observational evidence for the existence of black holes has grown significantly over recent decades. Stellar-mass black holes are detected as X-ray sources in binary systems, while supermassive black holes, with masses more than a million times the mass of the Sun, lurk in the nuclei of galaxies. These proceedings provide a useful and up-to-date overview of the observations of black holes in binaries, in the center of the Milky Way, and in the nuclei of galaxies, presented by leading expert astronomers. Special attention is given to the formation (including the recent evidence from gamma-ray bursts), physical properties, and demographics of black holes
Cyclical variability in stellar winds : proceedings of the ESO Workshop held at Garching, Germany, 14-17 October 1997 by ESO Workshop on Cyclical Variability in Stellar Winds( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and German and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is well known that stellar winds are variable. Recent investigations show that the observed fluctuations are often cyclical in nature. This property seems to be shared by the winds of cool and hot stars, even though the physical mechanisms driving these winds are fundamentally different. The time was ripe for astrophysicists studying different types of stars, but applying very similar models, to present the state of the art in a concise form. The proceedings will provide a useful, up-to-date overview of the observations, interpretation, and modelling of the time-dependent mass outflows from a wide variety of stars, including young, pre-main-sequence objects, solar-type stars, red supergiants, and hot, massive stars
