Title:The Physics of Galaxy Formation [electronic resource]
Author(s): Claudia Del P Lagos
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This thesis addresses two of the central processes which underpin the formation of galaxies: the formation of stars and the injection of energy into the interstellar medium from supernovae, called feedback. In her work ClaudiaLagos has completely ove rhauled the treatment of these processes in simulations of galaxy formation. Her thesis makes two major breakthroughs, and represents the first major steps forward in these areas in more than a decade. Her workhas enabled, for the first time, predictions to be made which can be compared against new observations which probe the neutral gas content of galaxies, opening up a completely novel way to constrain the models. The treatment offeedback from supernovae, and how this removes material from the interste llar medium, is also likely to have a lasting impact on the field. Claudia Lagos Ph.D. thesis was nominated by the Institute for Computational Cosmology at DurhamUniversity as an outstanding Ph.D. thesis 2012

Title:Principles of Astrophysics [electronic resource] : Using Gravity and Stellar Physics to Explore the Cosmos
Author(s): Charles Keeton
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book gives a survey of astrophysics at the advanced undergraduate level. It originates from a two-semester course sequence at Rutgers University that is meant to appeal not only to astrophysics students but also morebroadly to physics and engine ering students. The organization is driven more by physics than by astronomy in other words, topics are first developed in physics and then applied to astronomical systems that can be investigated,rather than the other way around. The first half of the bo ok focuses on gravity. Gravity is the dominant force in many astronomical systems, so a tremendous amount can be learned by studying gravity, motion and mass. The theme inthis part of the book, as well as throughout astrophysics, is using motion to invest igate mass. The goal of Chapters 2-11 is to develop a progressively richer understanding of gravity as it applies to objects ranging from planets andmoons to galaxies and the universe as a whole. The second half uses other aspects of physics to address on e of the big questions. While Why are we here? lies beyond the realm of physics, a closely related question is withinour reach: How did we get here? The goal of Chapters 12-21 is to understand the physics behind the remarkable story of how the Universe, E arth and life were formed. This book assumes familiarity with vector calculus andintroductory physics (mechanics, electromagnetism, gas physics and atomic physics) however, all of the physics topics are reviewed as they come up (and vital aspects of vecto r calculus are reviewed in the Appendix). This volume isaimed at undergraduate students majoring in astrophysics, physics or engineering

Title:Solar and Stellar Dynamos [electronic resource] : Saas-Fee Advanced Course 39 Swiss Society for Astrophysics and Astronomy

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Astrophysical dynamos are at the heart of cosmic magnetic fields of a wide range of scales, from planets and stars to entire galaxies. This book presents a thorough, step-by-step introduction to solar and stellar dynamos. Lookingfirst at the ultimate origin of cosmic seed magnetic fields, the antagonists of field amplification are next considered: resistive decay, flux expulsion, and flows ruled out by anti-dynamo theorems. Two kinematic flows that can act asdynamos are then studied: the Roberts cell and the CP-flow. Mean-field electrodynamics and derivation of the mean-field dynamo equations lead to the alpha Omega-dynamo, the flux transport dynamo, and dynamos based on theBabcock-Leighton mechanism. Alternatives to the mean-field theory are also pr esented, as are global MHD dynamo simulations. Fluctuations and grand minima in the solar cycle are discussed in terms of dynamo modulations throughstochastic forcing and nonlinear effects. The book concludes with an overview of the major challenges in un derstanding stellar magnetic fields and their evolution in terms of various dynamo models, global MHD simulations, and fossilfields. Each chapter is accompanied by an annotated bibliography, guiding the readers to the relevant technical literature, which may lead them to carry out their own research in the field of dynamo theory

Title:The Formation and Evolution of M33 as Revealed by Its Star Clusters [electronic resource]

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This thesis represents the first wide-field photometric and spectroscopic survey of star clusters in the nearby late-spiral galaxy M33. This system is the nearest example of a dwarf spiral galaxy, which may have a unique role inthe process of galaxy formation and evolution. The cold dark matter paradigm of galaxy formation envisions large spiral galaxies, such as the Milky Way, being formed from the merger and accretion of many smaller dwarf galaxies. Therole that dwarf spiral galaxies play in this p rocess is largely unclear. One of the goals of this thesis is to use the star cluster population of M33 to study its formation and evolution from its early stages to the present. The thesispresents a new comprehensive catalog of M33 star clusters, which i ncludes magnitudes, colors, structural parameters, and several preliminary velocity measurements. Based on an analysis of these data, the thesis concludes that, amongother things, the evolution of M33 has likely been influenced by its nearby massive neigh bor M31

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Starburst regions in nearby and distant galaxies have a profound impact on our understanding of the early universe. This new, substantially updated and extended edition of Norbert Schulzs unique book From Dust to Starsdescribes complex physical proce sses involved in the creation and early evolution of stars. It illustrates how these processes reveal themselves from radio wavelengths to high energy X-rays and gammarays, with special referencetowards high energy signatures. Several sections devoted to key analysis techniques demonstrate how modern research in this field is pursued and new chapters are introduced on massive star formation, proto-planetary disks andobservations of young exoplanets. Recent advances and contemporary research on the theory of star formation are explained, as are new observations, specifically from the three great observatories of the Spitzer Space Telescope, theHubble Space Telescope and the Chandra X-Ray Observatory which all now operate at the same time and make high reso lution space based observing in its prime. As indicated by the new title two new chapters have been included onproto-planetary disks and young exoplanets. Many more colour images illustrate attractive old and new topics that have evolved in recent years. The author gives updates in theory, fragmentation, dust, and circumstellar disks andemphasizes and strengthens the targeting of graduate students and young researchers, focusing more on computational approaches in this edition.

Title:Chemical Evolution of Galaxies [electronic resource]
Author(s): Francesca Matteucci
Date:2012
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 term chemical evolution of galaxies refers to the evolution of abundances of chemical species in galaxies, which is due to nuclear processes occurring in stars and to gas flows into and out of galaxies. This book dealswith the chemical evolution of galaxies of all morphological types (ellipticals, spirals and irregulars) and stresses the importance of the star formation histories in determining the properties of stellar populations in differentgalaxies. The topic is approached in a didactical and logical manner via galaxy evolution models which are compared with observational results obtained in the last two decades: The reader is given an introduction to the concept ofchemical abundances and learns about the main stellar populations in our Galax y as well as about the classification of galaxy types and their main observables. In the core of the book, the construction and solution of chemicalevolution models are discussed in detail, followed by descriptions and interpretations of observations of t he chemical evolution of the Milky Way, spheroidal galaxies, irregular galaxies and of cosmic chemical evolution. The aim ofthis book is to provide an introduction to students as well as to amend our present ideas in research the book also summarizes the efforts made by authors in the past several years in order to further future research in the field

Note:Dwarf galaxy research constitutes an extremely vibrant field of astrophysical research, with many long-standing questions still unsettled and new ones constantly arising. The intriguing diversity of the dwarf galaxy population,observed with advanced ground-based and space-borne observatories over a wide spectral window providing an unprecedented level of detail, poses new challenges for both observers and theoreticians. The aim of this symposium was to bringtogether these two groups to exchange ideas and new results on the many evolutionary aspects of and open issues concerning dwarf galaxies. The main topics addressed include: the birth of dwarf galaxies: theoretical concepts andobservable relics across wavelength and time the morphological, structu ral and chemical evolution of dwarf galaxies possible evolutionary connections between early-type and late-type dwarfs the star formation history ofdwarf galaxies and its dependence on intrinsic and environmental properties the origin and implications of starburst activity in dwarf galaxies the fate of dwarfish systems born out of tidally ejected matter in galaxycollisions

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

Title:Matter, Dark Matter, and Anti-Matter [electronic resource] : In Search of the Hidden Universe

Vincent Le Brun
Date:2012
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:For over ten years, the dark side of the universe has been headline news. Detailed studies of the rotation of spiral galaxies, and 'mirages' created by clusters of galaxies bending the light from very remote objects, haveconvinced astronomers of the presence of large quantities of dark (unseen) matter in the cosmos. Moreover, in the 1990s, it was discovered that some four to five billion years ago the expansion of the universe entered a phase ofacceleration. This implies the existence of dark energy. The nature of these 'dark ingredients remains a mystery, but they seem to comprise about 95 percent of the matter/energy content of the universe. As for ordinary matter,although we are immersed in a sea of dark particles, including primordial neutrinos a nd photons from 'fossil' cosmological radiation, both we and our environment are made of ordinary, baryonic matter. Strangely, even if 15-20 percentof matter is baryonic matter, this represents only 4-5 percent of the total matter/energy content of the co smos. Here, authors Alain Mazure and Vincent Le Brun present the inventory of matter, both baryonic and exotic, andinvestigatethe nature and fate of matter's twin, anti-matter. According to the standard model, matter and anti-matter should have been forme d in equal quantities. Yet there seems to have been a very slight asymmetry, as yetunexplained, where 100,000,001 particles of matter formed for every 100,000,000 particles of anti-matter! The authors show how developments in technology have led to signif icant progress in scientific research and how, in tandem withthe evolution of new ideas, these advances are helping to lift the cosmic veil

Note:The publication of the morphology - density relation by Alan Dressler in 1980 brought into the limelight the role played by environment in the formation and evolution of galaxies. The symposium Environment and the Formation ofGalaxies: 30 years later , was organised with the purpose of establishing the environmental impact on the evolution of galaxies and its dependence on look-back time. Special emphasis was placed onthe physical mechanisms that areresponsible for transforming galaxies once they are accreted by a group or a cluster, including the observable imprint left in the galaxy HI distribution. Other major topics of the symposium were the environmental dependence of galaxyproperties at z 1 and the implementation of environmental effects in cos mological models of galaxy formation and evolution. This book presents the edited proceedings of this stimulating meeting

Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book provides a comprehensive account of the scientific results on high-redshift galaxies accumulated during the past ten years. Apart from summarizing and critically discussing the wealth of observational data, theobservational methods which ma de it possible to study these very distant and extremely faint objects are described in detail. Moreover, the technical feasibilities and physical limitations for existing and for future ground-based andspace-based telescopes are discussed. Thus, apart fr om summarizing the knowledge accumulated so far, the book is designed as a tool for planning future observational and instrumental programs and projects. In view of the potentialimportance of the observational results of the high-redshift universe for bas ic physics the book is written for astronomers as well as for physicists without prior astronomical knowledge. For this purpose it contains introductorychapters describing the basic concepts and notations used in modern astronomy and a brief overview of t he present knowledge of the local universe. The individual chapters provide detailed information, summaries and references on allimportant aspects and problems pertaining to the subject. The objective of the book is therefore to provide a thorough introdu ction to the topic for interested researchers. Students interested in extragalactic astronomy will findimportant information not (yet) available in standard academic texts. The book will also be a valuable companion text for special lectures on the high-r edshift universe and cosmic evolution. And it will be an important tool forresearch students starting a thesis in the field of extragalactic astronomy and observational cosmology

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents an up-to-date collection of reviews and contributed articles in the field of ultraviolet astronomy. Its content has been mainly motivated by the recent access to the rest frame UV light of distant red galaxies,gained through large optical facilities. This driveway has derived in a renewed interest on the stars that presumably dominate or have important effects on the integrated UV properties of evolved systems of the nearby and farawayUniverse. The topics included in this volume ex tend from the fresh spectroscopic analyses of high redshift early-type galaxies observed with the 8-10m class telescopes to the fundamental outcomes from various satellites, from thelong-lived International Ultraviolet Explorer to current facilities, such as the Galaxy Evolution Explorer. This is one of the few volumes published in recent years devoted to UV astronomical research and the only one dedicated to theproperties of evolved stellar populations at these wavelengths. This contemporary panorama wil l be an invaluable resource in the preparation of the next planned space missions, such as the World Space Observatory and the UltravioletImaging Telescope

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Clusters of galaxies are the largest structures in the Universe. Most of the visible matter is in the form of hot gas permeating the volume of the cluster. The bulk of this gas is in thermal equilibrium in the darkmatter-dominated potential. This boo k discusses all aspects of cluster physics beyond this thermal view. It covers topics such as the warm-hot intergalactic medium outside the clusters, non-thermal radiation components, shocks,equilibration processes and the chemical evolution of these stru ctures. The topics are covered from an observational, theoretical and numerical point of view. This volume provides a useful reference for astronomers and graduatestudents, in particular for those who are working in high-energy astrophysics and extra-gala ctic astronomy

Title:The Road to Galaxy Formation [electronic resource]
Author(s): William C Keel
Date:2007
Edition:Second Edition
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The formation of galaxies is one of the greatest puzzles in astronomy, the solution is shrouded in the depths of space and time, but has profound implications for the universe we observe today. The book discusses the beginningsof the process from cos mological observations and calculations, considers the broad features of galaxies that we need to explain and what we know of their later history. The author compares the competing theories for galaxy formationand considers the progress expected from new generations of powerful telescopes both on earth and in space. In this second edition the author has retained the observationally-based approach of the first edition, a feature which wasparticularly well-reviewed: Writing in Nature, Carlton Baugh noted in February 2003 that It is refreshing, in a market dominated by theorists, to come across a book on galaxy formation written from an observational perspective. TheRoad to Galaxy Formation should prove to be a handy primer on observations for graduate stude nts, advanced undergraduates and theorists who feel too shy to visit a telescope. The New Scientist wrote in March 2003: William Keeldelicately balances observational evidence against today's relevant theoretical possibilities. And Sepehr Arbabi-Bidgoli w rote in Astronomische Nachrichten that Reading this book I often felt like sitting in an exciting andentertaining lecture given by an astronomer who knows the subject and knows how to present it to the audience. A Bibliography at the end of each chapter c ontains a resum of books, selected research papers and Web resourcesproviding guidance to further reading

Note:For every galaxy in the field or in clusters, there are about three galaxies in groups. The Milky Way itself resides in a group, and groups can be found at high redshift. The current generation of 10-m class telescopes and spacefacilities allows the observation of the members of nearby groups with exquisite detail, and their properties can be correlated with the global properties of their host group. Groups in the local Universe offer us the chance to studygalaxies in environments characterized by st rong interactions. In the cosmological context, groups trace large-scale structures better than clusters, and the evolution of groups and clusters appears to be related. All these aspects ofresearch on groups of galaxies are summarized in this book writte n by scientists working in various fields

Note:John Dyson has contributed to the study of the hydrodynamic processes that govern a wide variety of astrophysical sources which he has helped explain. In this volume dedicated to him, introductory reviews to a number of the keyprocesses and to the so urces themselves are given by leading experts. The mechanisms in which the multi-component natures of media affect their dynamics receive particular attention, but the roles of hydromagnetic effects are alsohighlighted. The importance of cosmic ray modera tion and mass transfer between different thermal phases for cosmic ray moderation and mass transfer between different thermal phases for the evolution of flows are amongst the topicstreated. The main types of regions considered include those where stars f orm, the circumstellar environments of evolved stars, the larger scale interstellar structures caused by the mass loss of stars, and those where the lines of AGNsform. The reviews complement one another and together provide a coherent introduction to the astrophysics of diffuse sources suitable for postgraduate students and researchers in astrophysics. Individual reviews stand alone and aresuitable for an audience that includes advanced undergraduates doing final year projects

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

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online 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

Note:The possibilities of astronomical observation have dramatically increased over the last decade. Major satellites, like the Hubble Space Telescope, Chandra and XMM Newton, are complemented by numerous large ground-basedobservatories, from 8m-10m optic al telescopes to sub-mm and radio facilities. As a result, observational astronomy has access to virtually the whole electromagnetic spectrum of galaxies, even at high redshifts. Theoretical models ofgalaxy formation and cosmological evolution now face a serious challenge to match the plethora of observational data. In October 2003, over 170 astronomers from 15 countries met for a 4-day workshop to extensively illustrate anddiscuss all major observational projects and ongoing theoretical efforts to model galaxy formation and evolution. This volume contains the complete proceedings of this meeting and is therefore a unique and timely overview of thecurrent state of research in this rapidly evolving field

Note:The evolution in the form and structure of galaxies which has taken place since the universe was in its infancy is one of the most closely studied by astrophysicists and cosmologists today. It has profound implications for ourunderstanding of how the universe itself has evolved over the past 12 billion years or so. This book will discuss the evolution of galaxies in detail, emphasising the boundaries of our knowledge about the most distant galaxies, butdemonstrating how it is possible to make importa nt comparisons between nearby galaxies and the most distant current observed.

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:For a quantitative understanding of the physics of the universe - from the solar system through the milky way to clusters of galaxies all the way to cosmology - these edited lecture notes are perhaps among the most concise andalso among the most crit ical ones: Astrophysics has not yet stood the redundancy test of laboratory physics, hence should be wary of early interpretations. Special chapters are devoted to magnetic and radiation processes, supernovae,disks, black-hole candidacy, bipolar flows, co smic rays, gamma-ray bursts, image distortions, and special sources. At the same time, planet earth is viewed as the arena for life, with plants and animals having evolved to homo sapiensduring cosmic time. -- This text is unique in covering the basic qua litative and quantitative tools, formulae as well as numbers, needed for the precise interpretation of frontline phenomena in astrophysical research. The authorcompares mainstream interpretations with new and even controversial ones he wishes to emphasize . The second edition includes numerous updates throughout the book and, in addition, it contains a list of alternative explanations toastrophysical findings that can be seen as a serious testing ground for young scientists

Note:Stars are born and die in clouds of gas and dust, opaque to most types of radiation, but transparent in the infrared. Requiring complex detectors, space missions and cooled telescopes, infrared astronomy is the last branch of thisdiscipline to come o f age. After a very successful sky survey performed in the eighties by the IRAS satellite, the Infrared Space Observatory, in the nineties, brought spectacular advances in the understanding of the processes givingrise to powerful infrared emission by a gr eat variety of celestial sources. Outstanding results have been obtained on the bright comet Hale-Bopp, and in particular of its water spectrum, as well as on the formation, chemistry anddynamics of planetary objects in the solar system. Ideas on the earl y stages of stellar formation and on the stellar initial mass function have been clarified. ISO is the first facility in space able to provide a systematic diagnosisof the physical phenomena and the chemistry in the close environment of pre-main sequence stars, in the interstellar medium, and in the final stages of stellar life, using, among other indicators, molecular hydrogen, ubiquitouscrystalline silicates, water and ices. ISO has dramatically increased our ability to investigate the power production, excitation and fuelling mechanism of galaxies of every type, and has discovered a new very cold dust component ingalaxies. ISO has demonstrated that luminous infrared galaxies were brighter and much more numerous in the past, and that they played a domin ant role in shaping present day galaxies and in producing the cosmic infrared background

Note:The phenomena observed in young stellar objects (YSO), circumstellar regions and extra-galactic nuclei show some similarity in their morphology, dynamical and physical processes, though they may differ in scale and energy. TheEuropean Workshop on Ast ronomical Molecules 2004 gave astronomers a unique opportunity to discuss the links among the observational results and to generate common interpretations of the phenomena in stars and galaxies, using theavailable diagnostic tools such as masers and dense molecular gas. Their theoretical understanding involves physics, numerical simulations and chemistry. Including a dozen introductory reviews, topics of papers in this book also cover:maser and dense gas diagnostics and related phenomena, evolution of cir cumstellar regions around protostars, evolution of circumnuclear regions of active galaxies, diagnostics of the circumnuclear gas in stars and galactic nuclei. Thisbook summarizes our present knowledge in these topics, highlights major problems to be addr essed, and finally proposes future work

Title:Starbursts [electronic resource] : From 30 Doradus to Lyman Break Galaxies
Author(s): Richard Grijs

Date:2005
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Starbursts are important features of early galaxy evolution. Many of the distant, high-redshift galaxies we are able to detect are in a starbursting phase, often apparently provoked by a violent gravitational interaction withanother galaxy. In fact, if we did not know that major starbursts existed, these conference proceedings testify that we would indeed have difficulties explaining the key properties of the Universe! These conference proceedings coverstarbursts from the small-scale star-forming reg ions in nearby galaxies to galaxy-wide events at high redshifts one of the major themes of the conference proved to be scalability, i.e., can we scale up the small-scale events todescribe the physics on larger scales. The key outcome of this meeting and these proceedings is a resounding yes as answer to this fundamental, yet profound question. The enhanced synergy facilitated by the collaborationamong observers using cutting-edge ground and space-based facilities, theorists and modellers has made these proceedings into a true reflection of the state of the art in this very rapidly evolving field. Ample space is provided forsummaries of the large number of talks by experts in the field, thus enhancing the information content

Note:The Book contains the proceedings of a Conference intended to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the IMF concept by Ed Salpeter along with Ed Salpeter's 80th birthday. It summarizes a vast amounts ofinformation, and updates the Her stmonceux book on the IMF,(eds. Howell and Gilmore, 1998 - ASP publ). The book collects many long reviews on IMF determinations in the Galaxy, in galaxies, and in the Early Universe as well as deepimplications of the IMF on star formation theories and on the physical conditions of the gas before and after star formation. It provides basic information needed for the coverage of these important quantities in graduate courses ofStellar Evolution, Star Formation, Interstellar Medium, Galactic Dynamics, Format ion and Evolution of Galaxies. The book covers all aspects of the current researches in this field, as testified by the large number of contributingscientists
