Principles of Geometry (Cambridge Library Collection - Mathematics)
Principles of Geometry (Cambridge Library Collection - Mathematics)

Henry Frederick Baker (1866-1956) was a renowned British mathematician specialising in algebraic geometry. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1898 and appointed the Lowndean Professor of Astronomy and Geometry in the University of Cambridge in 1914. First published between 1922 and 1925, the six-volume Principles of Geometry was...

Bayesian Reasoning and Machine Learning
Bayesian Reasoning and Machine Learning
We live in a world that is rich in data, ever increasing in scale. This data comes from many di erent sources in science (bioinformatics, astronomy, physics, environmental monitoring) and commerce (customer databases, nancial transactions, engine monitoring, speech recognition, surveillance, search). Possessing the knowledge as to...
Measuring the Angular Momentum of Supermassive Black Holes (SpringerBriefs in Astronomy)
Measuring the Angular Momentum of Supermassive Black Holes (SpringerBriefs in Astronomy)

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.  This brief describes how astronomers measure spin in supermassive black holes using X-ray...

Foundations of Modern Cosmology
Foundations of Modern Cosmology

Recent discoveries in astronomy, especially those made with data collected by satellites such as the Hubble Space Telescope and the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, have revolutionized the science of cosmology. These new observations offer the possibility that some long-standing mysteries in cosmology might be answered, including such...

Newton's Gravity: An Introductory Guide to the Mechanics of the Universe (Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics)
Newton's Gravity: An Introductory Guide to the Mechanics of the Universe (Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics)

“Newton’s Gravity” conveys the power of simple mathematics to tell the fundamental truth about nature. Many people, for example, know the tides are caused by the pull of the Moon and to a lesser extent the Sun. But very few can explain exactly how and why that happens. Fewer still can calculate the  actual pulls of the...

Theoretical Astrophysics: An Introduction
Theoretical Astrophysics: An Introduction

Beginning from first principles and adopting a modular structure, this book develops the fundamental physical methods needed to describe and understand a wide range of seemingly very diverse astrophysical phenomena and processes. For example, the discussion of radiation processes including their spectra is based on Larmor's equation and...

Astronomy 101: From the Sun and Moon to Wormholes and Warp Drive, Key Theories, Discoveries, and Facts about the Universe (Adams 101)

Explore the curiosities of the cosmos in this engaging book! 



Too often, textbooks go into more detail than readers have in mind when they want to learn a little something about astronomy. This is where Astronomy 101 comes in. It takes you out to the stars and planets and galaxies and discusses...
Quantum Computing
Quantum Computing

The twentieth century witnessed the birth of revolutionary ideas in the phys- ical sciences. These ideas began to shake the traditional view of the universe dating back to the days of Newton, even to the days of Galileo. Albert Ein- stein is usually identified as the creator of the relativity theory, a theory that is used to model the...

The Science and Art of Using Telescopes (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
The Science and Art of Using Telescopes (Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Amateur astronomers have to start somewhere. Most begin by buying a modest astronomical telescope and getting to know the night sky. After a while, many want to move on to the next stage, but this can be problematic. The magazines advertise a mass of commercially-made equipment – some of it very expensive – which can represent a major...
Software Systems for Astronomy (SpringerBriefs in Astronomy)
Software Systems for Astronomy (SpringerBriefs in Astronomy)

This book covers the use and development of software for astronomy. It describes the control systems used to point the telescope and operate its cameras and spectrographs, as well as the web-based tools used to plan those observations. In addition, the book also covers the analysis and archiving of astronomical data once it has been acquired....
