Fundamentals of Radio Astronomy Observational Methods

Fundamentals of Radio Astronomy: Observational Methods

1st Edition

By Jonathan Marr, Ronald L. Snell, Stanley Kurtz
December 03, 2015

As evidenced by five Nobel Prizes in physics, radio astronomy in its 80-year history has contributed greatly to our understanding of the universe. Yet for too long, there has been no suitable textbook on radio astronomy for undergraduate students. Fundamentals of Radio Astronomy: Observational ...

Astrobiology An Introduction

Astrobiology: An Introduction

1st Edition

By Alan Longstaff
November 24, 2014

Astrobiology is a multidisciplinary pursuit that in various guises encompasses astronomy, chemistry, planetary and Earth sciences, and biology. It relies on mathematical, statistical, and computer modeling for theory, and space science, engineering, and computing to implement observational and ...

Numerical Methods in Astrophysics An Introduction

Numerical Methods in Astrophysics: An Introduction

1st Edition

By Peter Bodenheimer, Peter Bodenheimer, Gregory P. Laughlin, Gregory P. Laughlin, Michal Rozyczka, Tomasz Plewa, Harold. W Yorke, Michal Rozyczka, Harold W. Yorke
December 13, 2006

Numerical Methods in Astrophysics: An Introduction outlines various fundamental numerical methods that can solve gravitational dynamics, hydrodynamics, and radiation transport equations. This resource indicates which methods are most suitable for particular problems, demonstrates what the accuracy ...

Very High Energy Gamma-Ray Astronomy

Very High Energy Gamma-Ray Astronomy

1st Edition

By T.C. Weekes
April 08, 2003

High energy gamma-ray photons are the prime probes of the relativistic or high-energy universe, populated by black holes, neutron stars, supernovae, quasars, and matter-antimatter annihilations. Through studying the gamma-ray sky, astrophysicists are able to better understand the formation and ...

Dark Sky, Dark Matter

Dark Sky, Dark Matter

1st Edition

By J.M Overduin, P.S Wesson
September 01, 2002

Olbers' paradox states that given the Universe is unbounded, governed by the standard laws of physics, and populated by light sources, the night sky should be ablaze with light. Obviously this is not so. However, the paradox does not lie in nature but in our understanding of physics. A Universe ...

The Origin and Evolution of the Solar System

The Origin and Evolution of the Solar System

1st Edition

By Michael M. Woolfson
January 01, 2000

The origin of the solar system has been a matter of speculation for many centuries, and since the time of Newton it has been possible to apply scientific principles to the problem. A succession of theories, starting with that of Pierre Laplace in 1796, has gained general acceptance, only to fall ...

Optical Astronomical Spectroscopy

Optical Astronomical Spectroscopy

1st Edition

By C.R. Kitchin
January 01, 1995

A concise introduction, Optical Astronomical Spectroscopy appeals to the newcomer of astronomical spectroscopy and assumes no previous specialist knowledge. Beginning from the physical background of spectroscopy with a clear explanation of energy levels and spectroscopic notation, the book proceeds...

Dust and Chemistry in Astronomy

Dust and Chemistry in Astronomy

1st Edition

Edited By T.J Millar, D.A Williams
January 01, 1993

Dust is widespread in the galaxy. To astronomers studying stars it may be just an irritating fog, but it is becoming widely recognized that cosmic dust plays an active role in astrochemistry. Without dust, the galaxy would have evolved differently, and planetary systems like ours would not have ...
