Starfinder
Starfinder

Combining a concise practical guide to astronomy with card decks, sky maps, and a flashlight, Starfinder explains how to navigate around the night sky, shows you what you can expect to see, and provides all the tools you need to see the constellations for yourself. It also includes a section on observing the Moon, planets, and other...

Geometric Optics: Theory and Design of Astronomical Optical Systems Using Mathematica®
Geometric Optics: Theory and Design of Astronomical Optical Systems Using Mathematica®

This book—unique in the literature—provides 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 work were obtained by using a different approach to third-order aberration theory as well as the extensive use of the...

MHD Flows in Compact Astrophysical Objects: Accretion, Winds and Jets (Astronomy and Astrophysics Library)
MHD Flows in Compact Astrophysical Objects: Accretion, Winds and Jets (Astronomy and Astrophysics Library)

Accretion flows, winds and jets of compact astrophysical objects and stars are generally described within the framework of hydrodynamical and magnetohydrodynamical (MHD) flows. Analytical analysis of the problem provides profound physical insights, which are essential for interpreting and understanding the results of numerical simulations....

Scientific Data Mining: A Practical Perspective
Scientific Data Mining: A Practical Perspective

Technological advances are enabling scientists to collect vast amounts of data in fields such as medicine, remote sensing, astronomy, and high-energy physics. These data arise not only from experiments and observations, but also from computer simulations of complex phenomena. They are often complex, with both spatial and temporal components. As...

Stability and Chaos in Celestial Mechanics (Springer Praxis Books / Astronomy and Planetary Sciences)
Stability and Chaos in Celestial Mechanics (Springer Praxis Books / Astronomy and Planetary Sciences)

Alessandra Celletti’s proposed book presents classical celestial mechanics and its interplay with dynamical systems in a way that would be suitable for advance level undergraduate students as well as postgraduate students and researchers. First she uses paradigmatic models, such as the logistic map or the standard map, to introduce the...

Magic Universe: A Grand Tour of Modern Science
Magic Universe: A Grand Tour of Modern Science

As a prolific author, BBC commentator, and magazine editor, Nigel Calder has spent a lifetime spotting and explaining the big discoveries in all branches of science. In Magic Universe, he draws on his vast experience to offer readers a lively, far-reaching look at modern science in all its glory, shedding light on the latest ideas in...

Stellar Polarimetry
Stellar Polarimetry

To many astrophysicists, Stellar P larimetry is a Cinderella subject considered as being so insignificant and, at the same time, being so esoteric as to be ignored and left alone. Others have followed and developed the theme with an enthusiastic passion. There can be no doubt, however, that the study of polarization within Astronomy has a...

Computational Fluid Mechanics
Computational Fluid Mechanics

This volume presents recent advances in computational fluid dynamics. The topics range from fundamentals and computational techniques to a wide variety of applications in astronomy, applied mathematics and meteorology. They describe recent calculations in direct numerical simulation of turbulence, applications of turbulence modelling of...

Testing IT: An Off-the-Shelf Software Testing Process
Testing IT: An Off-the-Shelf Software Testing Process

Why is astronomy considered a science while astrology is considered only a pseudoscience? In other words, how can we prove that a theory faithfully describes reality, and that this theory can then be used to predict unknown facts? Karl Popper, the well-known philosopher, studied these problems and summarized his conclusions in one...

Information Sharing on the Semantic Web
Information Sharing on the Semantic Web

The rapid progress of the “information society” in the past decade has been made possible by the removal of many technical barriers. Producing, storing, and transporting information in large quantities are no longer significant problems.

Producing on-line, digitized information is no longer a problem. Ever more of our...
