Cosmology

Forthcoming

Nicola Vittorio
October 27, 2017

Modern cosmology has changed significantly over the years, from the discovery to the precision measurement era. The data now available provide a wealth of information, mostly consistent with a model where dark matter and dark energy are in a rough proportion of 3:7. The time is right for a fresh...

Cosmology for Physicists

Cosmology for Physicists

David Lyth
October 26, 2016

Written by an award-winning cosmologist, this brand new textbook provides advanced undergraduate and graduate students with coverage of the very latest developments in the observational science of cosmology. The book is separated into three parts; part I covers particle physics and general...

Stellar Explosions: Hydrodynamics and Nucleosynthesis

Stellar Explosions: Hydrodynamics and Nucleosynthesis

Jordi Jose
December 22, 2015

Stars are the main factories of element production in the universe through a suite of complex and intertwined physical processes. Such stellar alchemy is driven by multiple nuclear interactions that through eons have transformed the pristine, metal-poor ashes leftover by the Big Bang into a cosmos...

Fundamentals of Radio Astronomy: Observational Methods

Fundamentals of Radio Astronomy: Observational Methods

Jonathan M. Marr, Ronald L. Snell, Stanley E. 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

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...

An Introduction to the Physics of Interstellar Dust

An Introduction to the Physics of Interstellar Dust

Endrik Krugel
July 12, 2007

Streamlining the extensive information from the original, highly acclaimed monograph, this new An Introduction to the Physics of Interstellar Dust provides a concise reference and overview of interstellar dust and the interstellar medium. Drawn from a graduate course taught by the author, a highly...

Numerical Methods in Astrophysics: An Introduction

Numerical Methods in Astrophysics: An Introduction

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

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...

The Physics of Interstellar Dust

The Physics of Interstellar Dust

Endrik Krugel
December 02, 2002

Interstellar dust grains catalyse chemical reactions, absorb, scatter, polarise and re-radiate starlight and constitute the building blocks for the formation of planets. Understanding this interstellar component is therefore of primary importance in many areas of astronomy & astrophysics. For...

Dust in the Galactic Environment, 2nd Edition

Dust in the Galactic Environment, 2nd Edition

D.C.B Whittet
October 21, 2002

Dust is a ubiquitous feature of the cosmos, impinging directly or indirectly on most fields of modern astronomy and astrophysics. Dust in the Galactic Environment, Second Edition provides a thorough overview of the subject, covering general concepts, methods of investigation, important results and...

Dark Sky, Dark Matter

Dark Sky, Dark Matter

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...

An Introduction to the Science of Cosmology

An Introduction to the Science of Cosmology

Derek Raine, E.G. Thomas
August 01, 2001

A thorough introduction to modern ideas on cosmology and on the physical basis of the general theory of relativity, An Introduction to the Science of Cosmology explores various theories and ideas in big bang cosmology, providing insight into current problems. Assuming no previous knowledge of...
