Title:Essential Astrophysics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Kenneth R Lang
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:Essential Astrophysics is a book to learn or teach from, as well as a fundamental reference volume for anyone interested in astronomy and astrophysics. It presents astrophysics from basic principles without requiring any previousstudy of astronomy or astrophysics. It serves as a comprehensive introductory text, which takes the student through the field of astrophysics in lecture-sized chapters of basic physical principles applied to the cosmos. Thisone-semester overview will be enjoyed by undergradua te students with an interest in the physical sciences, such as astronomy, chemistry, engineering or physics, as well as by any curious student interested in learning about ourcelestial science. The mathematics required for understanding the text is on the level of simple algebra, for that is all that is needed to describe the fundamental principles. The text is of sufficient breadth and depth to prepare theinterested student for more advanced specialized courses in the future. Astronomical examples are pr ovided throughout the text, to reinforce the basic concepts and physics, and to demonstrate the use of the relevant formulae. In thisway, the student learns to apply the fundamental equations and principles to cosmic objects and situations. All of the exa mples are solved with the rough accuracy needed to portray the basic result. Astronomical and physical constantsand units as well as the most fundamental equations can be found in the appendix. Essential Astrophysics goes beyond the typical textbook by in cluding references to the seminal papers in the field, with further reference to recentapplications, results, or specialized literature. There are fifty set-aside focus elements that enhance and augment the discussion with fascinating details. They includ e the intriguing historical development of particular topics andprovide further astrophysics equations or equations for other topics. Kenneth Lang is a world-renowned author on astrophysics. His book

Note:Quantum gravityhas developed into a fast-growing subject in physics and it is expected that probing the high-energy and high-curvature regimes of gravitating systems will shed some light on how to eventually achieve anultraviolet complete quantum the ory of gravity. Such a theory would provide the much needed information about fundamental problems of classical gravity, such as the initial big-bang singularity, the cosmological constant problem,Planck scale physics and the early-time inflationary evolu tion of our Universe. While in the first part of this book concepts of quantum gravity are introduced and approached from different angles, the second part discusses thesetheories in connection with cosmological models and observations, thereby exploring which types of signatures of modern and mathematically rigorous frameworks can be detected by experiments. The third and final part briefly reviews theobservational status of dark matter and dark energy, and introduces alternative cosmological models. E dited and authored by leading researchers in the field and cast into the form of a multi-author textbook at postgraduate level,this volume will be of benefit to all postgraduate students and newcomers from neighboring disciplines wishing to find a compreh ensive guide for their future research

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents experiments which will teach physics relevant to astronomy. The astronomer, as instructor, frequently faces this need when his college or university has no astronomy department and any astronomy course is taughtin the physics depar tment. The physicist, as instructor, will find this intellectually appealing when faced with teaching an introductory astronomy course. From these experiments, the student will acquire important analytical tools,learn physics appropriate to astronomy, and experience instrument calibration and the direct gathering and analysis of data. Experiments that can be performed in one laboratory session as well as semester-long observation projects areincluded. This textbook is aimed at undergraduate astronomy stud ents

Note:This long-awaited second edition of the classical textbook on Stellar Structure and Evolution by Kippenhahn and Weigert is a thoroughly revised version of the original text. Taking into account modern observational constraints aswell as additional ph ysical effects such as mass loss and diffusion, Achim Weiss and Rudolf Kippenhahn have succeeded in bringing the book up to the state-of-the-art with respect to both the presentation of stellar physics and thepresentation and interpretation of current sop histicated stellar models. The well-received and proven pedagogical approach of the first edition has been retained. The book provides a comprehensive treatment of the physics of thestellar interior and the underlying fundamental processes and parameters. The models developed to explain the stability, dynamics and evolution of the stars are presented and great care is taken to detail the various stages in astars life. Just as the first edition, which remained a standard work for more than 20 years after i ts first publication, the second edition will be of lasting value not only for students but also for active researchers in astronomyand astrophysics

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This is the updated, widely revised, restructured and expanded third edition of Lna et al.'s successful work Observational Astrophysics. It presents a synthesis on tools and methods of observational astrophysics of the early21st century. Written spec ifically for astrophysicists and graduate students, this textbook focuses on fundamental and sometimes practical limitations on the ultimate performance that an astronomical system may reach, rather thanpresenting particular systems in detail. In little m ore than a decade there has been extraordinary progress in imaging and detection technologies, in the fields of adaptive optics, optical interferometry, in the sub-millimetrewaveband, observation of neutrinos, discovery of exoplanets, to name but a few ex amples. The work deals with ground-based and space-based astronomy and their respective fields. And it also presents the ambitious concepts behind spacemissions aimed for the next decades. Avoiding particulars, it covers the whole of the electromagnetic s pectrum, and provides an introduction to the new forms of astronomy becoming possible with gravitational waves and neutrinos. Italso treats numerical aspects of observational astrophysics: signal processing, astronomical databases and virtual observatorie s

Title:The Wondrous Universe [electronic resource] Creation without Creator?

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The world as it is viewed from modern physics and cosmology has many strange and unexpected features. Often these are in stark contrast with our everyday experience or our preconceptions, such as the concept of space and time asfinite and changeable. Nevertheless it is this strange world which is the fundamental basis of our existence. Therefore modern science also has a few things to say about the age-old questions: Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going? The author, an experienced s cientist and teacher, presents the knowledge that we have about our worldfor non-experts. He takes us on a journey through cosmology and the quantum world of elementary particles. Andhe sketches the impact of the insights gained into philosophical assumpt ions and religious beliefs in these disciplines. In the end he asks the speculative question whether there is something beyond the limits of the natural sciences.Gerhard Brner is a Professor of Physics at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich and co nducts research on the early universe and dark matter at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics in Garching near Munich. He received hisPhD for a thesis on particle physics under the supervision of Werner Heisenberg and Hans-Peter Drr. Professor Brner is the author of the successful graduate textbook The Early Universe (published by Springer and now in its 4thedition), as well as of several popular science books on cosmology. In 2009 he received the Chinese Academy of Sciences Award for International C ooperation in Science and Technology (together with Prof. Maurice-Roger Bonnet). In 2010he received the Friendship Award, and in January 2011 the Chinese governments National Award for Cooperation in Science and Technology, the highest honor bestowed on f oreigners

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:With increasingly complex and costly opto-mechanical systems, there is a growing need for reliable computer modeling and simulation. The field of integrated modeling, combining optics, mechanics, control engineering, and otherdisciplines, is the subj ect of this book. Although the book primarily focuses on ground-based optical telescopes, the techniques introduced are applicable also to other wavelengths and to other opto-mechanical applications on theground or in space. Basic tools of integrated mode ling are introduced together with concepts of ground-based telescopes. Modeling of optical systems, structures, wavefront control systems with emphasis on segmented mirror control, andactive and adaptive optics are described together with a variety of noi se sources many examples are included in this book. Integrated Modeling of Telescopes is a text for physicists and engineers working in the field ofopto-mechanical design and wavefront control, but it will also be valuable as a textbook for PhD students

Title:Geometric Optics [electronic resource] : Theory and Design of Astronomical Optical Systems Using Mathematica
Author(s): Antonio Romano
Date:2010
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This bookunique in the literatureprovides readers with the mathematical background needed to design many of the optical combinations that are used in astronomical telescopes and cameras. The results presented in the workwere obtained by using a diffe rent approach to third-order aberration theory as well as the extensive use of the software package Mathematica. The newly presented approach to third-order aberration theory adopted is based onFermats principle and the use of particular optical pathsnot raystermed stigmatic paths, allowing for easy derivation of third-order formulae. This approach enables readers to understand and handle the formulae required todesign optical combinations without resorting to the much more complex Hamiltonian formalism a nd Seidel's relations. Additional features and topics: * Presentation of the third-order design of cameras and telescopes with the aid ofMathematica eliminates the need for tedious computer calculations * Mathematica notebooks accompanying each optical co mbination analyzed in the book are available for download at http://extra.springer.com/978-0-8176-4871-8 * Discussionand analysis of specific optical devices: Newtonian and Cassegrain telescopes Schmidt, Wright, Houghton, and Maksutov cameras and other op tical combinations, such as the Klevtsov telescope and the BakerSchmidt flat-field camera *Additional supplementary material available at the publisher's website * Many worked-out examples and exercises Geometric Optics is an excellent reference for advan ced graduate students, researchers, and practitioners in appliedmathematics, engineering, astronomy, and astronomical optics. The work may be used as a supplementary textbook for graduate-level courses in astronomical optics, optical design, optical engin eering, programming with Mathematica, orgeometric optics

Note:Radio Recombination Lines is a comprehensive guide to the physics and observations of Radio Recombination Lines from astronomical sources. It includes the history of RRL detections, the astrophysics underlying their intensitiesand line shapes includi ng topics like departures from LTE and Stark broadening, the maximum possible size of an atom, as well as detailed descriptions of the astronomical topics for which RRLs have proved to be effective tools. Inaddition, the appendix includes detailed physics underlying the Bohr atomic model, tables of RRL frequencies including fine structure components, techniques for calculating hydrogenic oscillator strengths, and formulas for convertingtelescope intensity units to astrophysical ones. Radio Recombination L ines is written for astronomers and physicists. It is also suitable as a graduate-level textbook. This softcover contains updates and corrections from the previoushardcover published in 2002. We now have a splendid book written by two of the pioneers, M.A . Gordon of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Tucson and R.L. Sorochenko of the Lebedev Institute. In their Preface the authors saythat the book was written by exchanging email. They give a fascinating account of the history of the subject, a de tailed discussion of the atomic physics required for the interpretation of the observations, and describe astronomicalresults obtained using RRL observations for a wide range of astronomical objects. -Mike Seaton, Former President, Royal Astronomical Soci ety, 1979-1981

Note:The theory, observations, and applications of gravitational lensing constitute one of the most rapidly growing branches of astrophysics. The gravitational deflection of light generated by mass concentrations along a light pathproduces magnification, multiplicity, and distortion of images and delays photon propagation from one line of sight relative to another. The huge amount of scientific work on gravitational lensing produced over the last decade hasclearly revealed its already substantial and wide impact and its potential for future astrophysical applications. The up-to-date contributions in this book are based on the lecture notes of the 33rd SaasFee Advanced Course of theSwiss Society of Astronomy and Astrophysics, entitled Gravitational Lensing : Strong, Weak, and Micro. The book comprises four complementary parts, written by leading experts in the field, constituting a genuine textbook aboutgravitational lensing: Peter Schneider Part 1: Introduction to Gravitational Lensing and Cosmology Chr istopher Kochanek Part 2: Strong Gravitational Lensing Peter Schneider Part 3: Weak Gravitational Lensing Joachim Wambsganss Part 4: Gravitational Microlensing Students and researchers alike will benefit from this comprehensive presentation of the ast rophysical and astronomical aspects of gravitational lensing

Title:Methods of Celestial Mechanics [electronic resource] : Volume I: Physical, Mathematical, and Numerical Principles

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:G. Beutler's Methods of Celestial Mechanics is a coherent textbook for students in physics, mathematics and engineering as well as an excellent reference for practitioners. This Volume I gives a thorough treatment of celestialmechanics and presents a ll the necessary mathematical details that a professional would need. After a brief review of the history of celestial mechanics, the equations of motion (Newtonian and relativistic versions) are developed forplanetary systems (N-body-problem), for artifi cial Earth satellites, and for extended bodies (which includes the problem of Earth and lunar rotation). Perturbation theory is outlined in an elementary way from generally knownmathematical principles without making use of the advanced tools of analytica l mechanics. The variational equations associated with orbital motion - of fundamental importance for parameter estimation (e.g., orbit determination),numerical error propagation, and stability considerations - are introduced and their properties discusse d in considerable detail. Numerical methods, especially for orbit determination and orbit improvement, are discussed inconsiderable depth. The algorithms may be easily applied to objects of the planetary system and to Earth satellites and space debris

Title:Methods of Celestial Mechanics [electronic resource] : Volume II: Application to Planetary System, Geodynamics and Satellite Geodesy

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:G. Beutler's Methods of Celestial Mechanics is a coherent textbook for students as well as an excellent reference for practitioners. Volume II is devoted to the applications and to the presentation of the program systemCelestialMechanics. Three major areas of applications are covered: (1) Orbital and rotational motion of extended celestial bodies. The properties of the Earth-Moon system are developed from the simplest case (rigid bodies) to moregeneral cases, including the rotation of an elastic Eart h, the rotation of an Earth partly covered by oceans and surrounded by an atmosphere, and the rotation of an Earth composed of a liquid core and a rigid shell (Poincar model).(2) Artificial Earth Satellites. The oblateness perturbation acting on a satelli te and the exploitation of its properties in practice is discussed using simulation methods (CelestialMechanics) and (simplified) first order perturbationmethods. The perturbations due to the higher-order terms of the Earth's gravitational potential and r esonant perturbations are considered thereafter. Special attention is paid to satellites of the Global Navigation Satellite Systemsand to geostationary satellites. The characteristics of and models for the two most important non-gravitational forces, atmo spheric drag and radiation pressure, are presented as well as the most relevant forces acting on high- andlow-orbiting satellites. (3) Evolution of the Planetary System. The outer planetary system consisting of the planets Jupiter to Pluto is studied over long time intervals using simulation methods and spectral analysis(CelestialMechanics). The properties of the inner systems, in particular of the Earth's orbit, are made visible by integrating the entire system over long time intervals relevant for clima te change. The distribution of minor planetsand their orbital properties, regular orbits, and chaotic orbits are easily generated and analyzed using CelestialMechanics. The volume concludes with the d
