Galaxy Formation (Astronomy and Astrophysics Library)
Accounting for the enormous and amazing development cosmology has made in the past ten years, this long awaited second edition of Malcolm Longair's highly appreciated textbook has been extensively and thoroughly updated.
It tells the story of modern astrophysical cosmology from the perspective of one of its most important and fundamental problems – how did the galaxies come about? Longair uses this approach to introduce the whole of what may be called "classical cosmology". Moreover he describes how the study of the origin of galaxies and larger-scale structures in the Universe has provided us with unique and direct information about the physics of the very early Universe.
The material is presented in an informal pedagogical manner. This includes a comprehensive introduction to relativistic astrophysics needed for the clarification of cosmological ideas.
The Moon (Early Bird Astronomy)
This lively and informative book introduces beginning readers to the Moon's orbit around Earth, phases of the Moon and eclipses, the Moon's effect on tides, and more.
"The Impact of HST on European Astronomy"
The Hubble Space Telescope has facilitated major contributions to a wide range of topics in astronomy:
The study of nearby planets
The processes of star and planet formation
The stellar and interstellar components of galaxies
The discovery that most, if not all, galactic nuclei harbor a massive black hole that profoundly affects their evolution
The realisation that the universe as a whole is undergoing acceleration as a result of a yet unknown form of "dark energy".
This volume offers a broad perspective of the advancements made possible by the HST over its almost two decades of operation and emphasises their impact on European astronomical research. These proceedings of 41st symposium in the ESLAB series of the European Space Agency collect the oral and poster papers that were presented and discussed during the meeting
