Title:Life and Death of the Stars [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ganesan Srinivasan
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This volume is devoted to one of the fascinating things about stars: how they evolve as they age. This evolution is different for stars of different masses. How stars end their lives when their supply of energy is exhausted alsodepends on their masse s. Interestingly, astronomers conjectured about the ultimate fate of the stars even before the details of their evolution became clear. Part I of this book gives an account of the remarkable predictions madeduring the 1920s and 1930s concerning the ultima te fate of stars. Since much of this development hinged on quantum physics that emerged during this time, a detailed introduction to the relevant physics is included in the book. Part IIis a summary of the life history of stars. This discussion is divided into three parts: low-mass stars, like our Sun, intermediate-mass stars, and massive stars. Many of the concepts of contemporary astrophysics were built on thefoundation erected by Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar in the 1930s. This book, written during his bi rth centenary, includes a brief biographical sketch of the brilliant scientist, which readers will find fascinating. Reading this book willget young students excited about the presently unfolding revolution in astronomy and the challenges that await them in the world of physics, engineering and technology. General readers will also find the book appealing for its highlyaccessible narrative of the physics of stars. This book is a companionvolume of What are the Stars? by the same author. I know of no other book on the evolution of stars of a similar scope and breadth that is soaccessible for undergraduate students.

Edition:2nd ed. 2013
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book provides a completely revised and expanded version of the previous classic edition General Relativity and Relativistic Astrophysics. In Part I the foundations of general relativity are thoroughly developed, whilePart II is devoted to tests of general relativity and many of its applications. Binary pulsars our best laboratories for general relativity are studied in considerable detail. An introduction to gravitational lensing theory isincluded as well, so as to make the current literature on the subject accessible to readers. Considerable attention is devoted to the study of compact objects, especially to black holes. This includes a detailed derivation of the Kerrsolution, Israels proof of his uniqueness theorem, and a derivation of the b asic laws of black hole physics. Part II ends with Wittens proof of the positive energy theorem, which is presented in detail, together with the requiredtools on spin structures and spinor analysis. In Part III, all of the differential geometric tools req uired are developed in detail. A great deal of effort went into refining and improving the text for the new edition. New material hasbeen added, including a chapter on cosmology. The book addresses undergraduate and graduate students in physics, astrophys ics and mathematics. It utilizes a very well structured approach, which should help it continue to be a standardwork for a modern treatment of gravitational physics. The clear presentation of differential geometry also makes it useful for work on string t heory and other fields of physics, classical as well as quantum

Title:The First Galaxies [electronic resource] Theoretical Predictions and Observational Clues

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:New observations of the period between the cosmic recombination and the end of reionization are posing intriguing questions about where the first generations of stars were formed, how the first galaxies were assembled, whetherthese galaxies have low redshift counterparts, and what role the early galaxies played in the reionization process. Combining the new observational data with theoretical models can shed new light on open issues regarding the starformation process, its role in the reionization of the Universe, and the metal enrichment in galaxies at those early epochs. This volume brings together leading experts in the field to discuss our current level of understanding andwhat may come in the near future as our observational as well as theoretic al tools improve. The book confronts the theory of how the first stars, black holes, and galaxies formed with current and planned observations. This synthesis isvery timely, just ahead of the establishment of major new facilities, such as the James Webb S pace Telescope (JWST), a next-generation, millimeter/sub-millimeter observatory in the Atacama desert (ALMA), and ground-based ExtremelyLarge Telescopes (ELT). Together, they will revolutionize the study of the most distant objects in the Universe. This v olume is aimed at beginning graduate students but can also serve as a reference work for active researchers in thefield. Apart from presenting the fundamental concepts involved, it also provides an introduction to the methods and techniques used. The book will also be useful to anyone with an astrophysical background who needs an effectivestarting point for learning about the first stars and galaxies

Title:High Energy Astrophysics [electronic resource] : An Introduction
Author(s): Thierry J.-L Courvoisier
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:High-energy astrophysics has unveiled a Universe very different from that only known from optical observations. It has revealed many types of objects in which typical variability timescales are as short as years, months, days, andhours (in quasars, X -ray binaries, and other objects), and even down to milli-seconds in gamma ray bursts. The sources of energy that are encountered are only very seldom nuclear fusion, and most of the time gravitation, a paradox whenone thinks that gravitation is, by many orders of magnitude, the weakest of the fundamental interactions. The understanding of these objects' physical conditions and the processes revealed by high-energy astrophysics in the lastdecades is nowadays part of astrophysicists' culture, even of those active in other domains of astronomy. This book evolved from lectures given to master and PhD students at the University of Geneva since the early 1990s. It aims atproviding astronomers and physicists intending to be active in high-energy astrophysics a broad basis on which they should be able to build the more specific knowledge they will need. While in the first part of the book the physicalprocesses are described and derived in detail, the second part studies astrophysical objects in which high-energy astrophysics plays a crucial role. This two-pronged approach will help students recognise physical processes by theirobservational signatures in contexts that may differ widely from those presented here

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Measuring the spin distribution of supermassive black holes is of critical importance for understanding how these black holes and their host galaxies form and evolve over time, yet this type of study is only in its infancy. Thisbrief describes how as tronomers measure spin in supermassive black holes using X-ray spectroscopy. It also reviews the constraints that have been placed on the spin distribution in local, bright active galaxies over the past sixyears, and the cosmological implications of these constraints. Finally, it summarizes the open questions that remain in this exciting new field of research and points toward future discoveries soon to be made by the next generationof space-based observatories

Title:Hot Interstellar Matter in Elliptical Galaxies [electronic resource]

Date:2012
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Based on a number of new discoveries resulting from 10 years of Chandra and XMM-Newton observations and corresponding theoretical works, this is the first book to address significant progress in the research of the HotInterstellar Matter in Elliptica l Galaxies. A fundamental understanding of the physical properties of the hot ISM in elliptical galaxies is critical, because they are directly related to the formation and evolution of ellipticalgalaxies via star formation episodes, environmental effects such as stripping, infall, and mergers, and the growth of super-massive black holes. Thanks to the outstanding spatial resolution of Chandra and the large collecting area ofXMM-Newton, various fine structures of the hot gas have been imaged in detail and key physical quantities have been accurately measured, allowing theoretical interpretations/predictions to be compared and tested against observationalresults. This book will bring all readers up-to-date on this essential field of research

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The concept of self-organized criticality (SOC) has been applied to a variety of problems, ranging from population growth and traffic jams to earthquakes, landslides and forest fires. The technique is now being applied to awide range of phenomena in astrophysics, such as planetary magnetospheres, solar flares, cataclysmic variable stars, accretion disks, black holes and gamma-ray bursts, and also to phenomena in galactic physics and cosmology.Self-organized Criticality in Astrophysics introduces the concept of SOC and shows that, due to its universality and ubiquity, it is a law of nature. The theoretical framework and specific physical models are described, together with arange of applications in various aspects of astrophyics. The mathematical tech niques, including the statistics of random processes, time series analysis, time scale and waiting time distributions, are presented and the results areapplied to specific observations of astrophysical phenomena

Note:The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the largest engineering project ever undertaken, and one of the most expensive. Why are physicists around the world so excited about it? What secrets of the universe does this gargantuan pieceof machinery hope to re veal? What risks are there in operating it? Could the exotic particles that are produced in the collisionsincluding tiny black holes that should wink into and out of existence between subatomic particles bea threat not only to humankind but to the planet itself? In this thorough and engaging review of cutting-edge physics and cosmology, you will learn why the collider was built and how it works. You will find out what scientists arehoping to find out and what current aspects of the Standard Model might ne ed to be revised. You will even learn about the quest to identify so-called dark matter and dark energy, which many now feel make up most of what's out there.This is a wild ride into some very unfamiliar and strange territory, but it is well worth your ti me to explore, as the Large Hadron Collider is set to change some very fundamental ideas of our universe, from the smallest pieces thatmake it up to the grandest

Note:This book provides a comprehensive, authoritative and timely review of the astrophysical approach to the investigation of gravity theories. Particular attention is paid to strong-field tests of general relativity and alternativetheories of gravity, p erformed using collapsed objects (neutron stars, black holes and white dwarfs) in relativistic binaries as laboratories. The book starts with an introduction which gives the background linking experimental gravityin cosmic laboratories to astrophysics and fundamental physics. Subsequent chapters cover observational and theoretical aspects of the following topics: from binaries as test-beds of gravity theories to binary pulsars as cosmiclaboratories from binary star evolution to the formation of relativist ic binaries from short gamma-ray bursts to low mass X-ray binaries from stellar-mass black hole binaries to coalescing super-massive black holes in galaxymergers. The book will be useful to researchers, PhD and graduate students in Astrophysics, Cosmology , Physics and Mathematics, who are interested in relativistic astrophysics, experimental gravity and general relativity

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book has resulted from a course in the general theory of relativity at the University of Oslo where the author has lectured for more than twenty years. Although the text is designed for master students, it is ratherself-contained. Since mathemat ics courses on differential geometry and tensor calculus usually employ a rather abstract notation different from the component notation used in physical applications, the book introduces not only anintroduction to the physical principles of the theory an d physical applications of the theory, but also introduces the mathematics which is needed, in particular the calculus of differential forms. Detailed calculations are given ofthe bending of light, the perihelion precession of Mercury and the predictions for the Hafele-Keating experiment. The Tolman-Oppenheimer-Volkoff equation is deduced and solved for an incompressible fluid to give the internalSchwarzschild solution. Rotating black holes are discussed. The Friedmann-Robertson-Walker universe models are deduced. Also the reader will become familiar with the Universe model which is now considered as the standard model of theuniverse a flat model filled with vacuum energy and cold matter. The inflationary era at the first moment of the history of our univ erse is also discussed

Title:Short-Period Binary Stars: Observations, Analyses, and Results [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource

Note:Short-period binaries run the gamut from widely separated stars to black-hole pairs in between are systems that include neutron stars and white dwarfs, and partially evolved systems such as tidally distorted and over-contactsystems. These objects rep resent stages of evolution of binary stars, and their degrees of separation provide critical clues to how their evolutionary paths differ from that of single stars. The widest and least distorted systemsprovide astronomers with the essential precise data needed to study all stars: mass and radius. The interactions of binary star components, on the other hand, provide a natural laboratory to observe how the matter in these starsbehaves under different and often varying physical conditions. Thus, cataclysmi c variables with and without overpoweringly strong magnetic fields, and stars with densities from that found in the Sun to the degenerate matter of whitedwarfs and the ultra-compact states of neutron stars and black holes are all discussed. The extensive index permits cross-referencing. The objects being discussed are carefully defined in each section and the contributions areorganized according to the compactness of the binaries that are treated. Some treatments are of individual objects others are more general. The observational techniques that are used by the contributors to throw light on these objectsinclude gravitational wave investigations, X-ray, radio, infrared, and optical astronomy and the ways in which these objects are analyzed is also discus sed. Among the specific objects reported is the Double Pulsar, highlighting whatobservations of this object tell us about fundamental physics. The level of the book is appropriate for both professional astronomers in the field as well as people interested in other fields and dedicated amateur astronomers

Title:Gravity, Black Holes, and the Very Early Universe [electronic resource] : An Introduction to General Relativity and Cosmology
Author(s): Tai L Chow
Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In the early 1900s, Albert Einstein formulated two theories that would forever change the landscape of physics: the Special Theory of Relativity and the General Theory of Relativity. By 1925, quantum mechanics had been born outof the dissection of th ese two theories, and shortly after that, relativistic quantum field theory. We now had in place some important ties between the laws of physics and the types of particle interactions the new physics wasuncovering. Gravity is one of the four types of forc es that are found throughout the universe. In fact, although it is a relatively weak force, it operates at huge distances, and so must be accounted for in any cosmological system.Unfortunately, gravity continues to defy our neat categorization of how all the forces in nature work together. Professor Tai Chow, from the California State University at Stanislaus in Turlock, lays out for us the basic ideas ofEinstein, including his law of gravitation, explains the physics behind black holes, and weaves into t his an absorbing account an explanation of the structure of the universe and the science of cosmology, including presenting thevarious models of the Big Bang, the Inflationary Universe, and the Unification of Forces. Travel with him down this engaging pat h to reach some fascinating conclusions, which raise even more interesting questions for the future ofastronomy and physics. Says Dr. Mark Silverman of Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut: The author introduces the mathematical methods essential to understanding and applying general relativitybut leaves to more advancedreferences derivations that a beginning student would likely find overly long and tedious. In this way the student can concentrate on learning physics .A strong point [is] the compreh ensive discussion of the physics of blackholes. Here again the author has hit just the right level of presentation: sufficient mathematical detail to demonstrate the physical attributes

Title:General Relativity [electronic resource]
Author(s): N. M. J Woodhouse
Date:2007
Publisher:London : Springer London
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Based on a course given at Oxford over many years, this book is a short and concise exposition of the central ideas of general relativity. Although the original audience was made up of mathematics students, the focus is on thechain of reasoning that leads to the relativistic theory from the analysis of distance and time measurements in the presence of gravity, rather than on the underlying mathematical structure. The geometric ideas - which are central tothe understanding of the nature of gravity - a re introduced in parallel with the development of the theory, the emphasis being on laying bare how one is led to pseudo-Riemannian geometry through a natural process of reconciliation ofspecial relativity with the equivalence principle. At centre stage a re the local inertial coordinates set up by an observer in free fall, in which special relativity is valid over short times and distances. In more practical terms,the book is a sequel to the author's Special Relativity in the same series, with some overla p in the treatment of tensors. The basic theory is presented using techniques, such as phase-plane analysis, that will already be familiar tomathematics undergraduates, and numerous problems, of varying levels of difficulty, are provided to test understan ding. The latter chapters include the theoretical background to contemporary observational tests - in particular thedetection of gravitational waves and the verification of the Lens-Thirring precession - and some introductory cosmology, to tempt the reade r to further study. While primarily designed as an introduction for final-year undergraduatesand first-year postgraduates in mathematics, the book is also accessible to physicists who would like to see a more mathematical approach to the ideas

Title:Physics of Active Galactic Nuclei at all Scales [electronic resource]

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The energy source in Active Galactic Nuclei is commonly accepted to be gravitational and released through accretion of matter onto a supermassive black hole. Since the discovery of the first radio galaxies and quasars in theearly sixties, tremendous progress has been made in unveiling, analyzing and modelling the different components in AGN: the accretion disk, the jets of relativistic particles, the X-ray absorber close to the central engine, thetorus which funnels the ionizing radiation, the surrou nding clouds of dense material in the broad-line region and narrow-line region, the cool molecular and dusty material around the torus, as well as jet-induced effects on largerscales. Yet, it remains to incorporate all these components and physical proces ses within a self-consistent AGN model that would take into account, and predict, all the facets of observed AGN activity. Besides discussing the elementsof this Unified Model of AGN, this book also addresses the still not-entirely-understood link of an A GN with its host galaxy and also the related question of the birth and growth of massive black holes in the universe, which is ofprime interest for cosmology. The collection of lecture notes in this volume written by recognized experts in the field of Act ive Galactic Nuclei address students and young researchers. They are aimed at providing both an introductionand at the same time an overview of the state of the art of AGN research

Title:Relativistic Astrophysics and Cosmology [electronic resource] : A Primer
Author(s): Peter Hoyng
Date:2006
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book offers a succinct and self-contained treatment of general relativity and its application to neutron stars, black holes, gravitational waves and cosmology, at an intermediate level. The required mathematical concepts areintroduced informally , following geometrical intuition as much as possible. The approach is theoretical, but there is ample discussion of observational aspects and instrumental issues where appropriate. Topical issues such as theGravity Probe B mission, and the physics of int erferometer detectors of gravitational waves and the angular power spectrum of the Cosmic Microwave Background are included. The book is written for advanced undergraduates and beginninggraduate students in (astro)physics. The reader is assumed to be fami liar with linear algebra and analysis, ordinary differential equations, special relativity, and basic thermal physics, but prior knowledge of differential geometryand general relativity is not required. Containing 140 exercises with extensive hints for th eir solution this book is ideally suited for a lecture course. The author is a senior scientist at the SRON Netherlands Institute for SpaceResearch and teaches regularly at the University of Utrecht

Title:The Sky at Einsteins Feet [electronic resource]
Author(s): William C Keel
Date:2006
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The insights of relativity have illuminated a century of astronomical discovery, often going beyond the phenomena that Einstein lived to see. This book shows, in nonmathematical ways, how deeply these ways of viewing the Universehave informed our int erpretations of it, and how many of the amazing discoveries of these decades have made sense only as part of Einstein's universe. The author brings together the ways in which we see the bizarre effects ofrelativity played out on a cosmic scale. None of th is is particularly new to practicing astronomers, but much has yet to be seen outside technical journals. The presentation avoids mathematics (except for the most famous equation inall of physics!), and is designed to be accessible to the interested publi c. Gravitational lenses, the visible effects of light-travel delays, the search for black holes, the ways relativity in atomic nuclei makes stars shine, are alltreated. In many cases, some of the principals are still alive and provided new commentary on t he discoveries. Numerous illustrations are newly produced from data in the archives of such observatories as Hubble and Chandra

Note:Neutron stars hold a central place in astrophysics, not only because they are made up of the most extreme states of the condensed matter, but also because they are, along with white dwarfs and black holes, one of the stableconfigurations that stars r each at the end of stellar evolution. Neutron stars posses the highest rotation rates and strongest magnetic fields among all stars. They radiate prolifically, in high energy electromagnetic radiation and inthe radio band. This book is devoted to the sele cted lectures presented in the 6th NATO-ASI series entitled The Electromagnetic Spectrum of Neutron Stars in Marmaris, Turkey, on 7-18 June 2004. This ASI is devoted to the spectralproperties of neutron stars. Spectral observations of neutron stars help u s to understand the magnetospheric emission processes of isolated radio pulsars and the emission processes of accreting neutron stars. This volume includesspectral information from the neutron stars in broadest sense, namely neutrino and gravitational rad iation along with the electromagnetic spectrum. We believe that this volume can serve as graduate level of text including the broadrange of properties of neutron stars
