A Practical Guide to Lightcurve Photometry and Analysis by Brian D. Warner
English | PDF | 2016 | 418 Pages | ISBN : 3319327496 | 18.2 MB

For those with access to even a modest telescope and CCD camera, this new and improved guide delivers all the information needed to take part in the scientific study of asteroids and variable stars. New techniques in photometry continue to be refined, and expert Brian Warner covers the developing territory in detail for those both new and experienced. Updated to reflect changes in telescope and CCD technology, it also includes an expanded chapter on the analysis of asteroid lightcurves to cover some of the common pitfalls that lead to incorrect answers as well as how to discover an asteroid satellite via lightcurves. With this information, amateur astronomers can use commercially available equipment to determine the rotation rate, size, and shape of asteroids. Similarly, it is possible to discover the size, temperature, and orbits of stars in binary systems by using this powerful technique.

Astrophysical Concepts by Martin Harwit
English | PDF | 2006 | 724 Pages | ISBN : 0387329439 | 14 MB

This classic text, aimed at senior undergraduates and beginning graduate students in physics and astronomy, presents a wide range of astrophysical concepts in sufficient depth to give the reader a quantitative understanding of the subject. Emphasizing physical concepts, the book outlines cosmic events but does not portray them in detail: it provides a series of astrophysical sketches. For this fourth edition, nearly every part of the text has been reconsidered and rewritten, new sections have been added to cover recent developments, and others have been extensively revised and brought up to date.

Master of Galactic Astronomy: A Biography of Jan Hendrik Oort by Pieter C. van der Kruit
English | EPUB | 2021 | 370 Pages | ISBN : 303055547X | 107.7 MB

This accessible and entertaining biography chronicles the life and triumphs of astronomer Jan Hendrik Oort, who helped lay the foundations of modern astronomy in the 20th century. The book puts into context some of Oort's most significant achievements, including his discovery that the Milky Way rotates, as well as his famous hypothesis that our Solar System is surrounded by a reservoir of comets — now simply known as the Oort Cloud.

Astronomy and Big Data: A Data Clustering Approach to Identifying Uncertain Galaxy Morphology by Kieran Jay Edwards
English | PDF | 2014 | 112 Pages | ISBN : 331906598X | 6.7 MB

With the onset of massive cosmological data collection through media such as the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS), galaxy classification has been accomplished for the most part with the help of citizen science communities like Galaxy Zoo. Seeking the wisdom of the crowd for such Big Data processing has proved extremely beneficial. However, an analysis of one of the Galaxy Zoo morphological classification data sets has shown that a significant majority of all classified galaxies are labelled as “Uncertain”.

High Time Resolution Astrophysics

High Time Resolution Astrophysics by Don Phelan
English | PDF | 2008 | 350 Pages | ISBN : 9048176573 | 8.2 MB

This is quite simply the first volume of its kind dedicated to the area of high time resolution astrophysics. High time resolution astrophysics (HTRA) is an important new window on the universe and a vital tool in understanding a range of phenomena from diverse objects and radiative processes. Underlining this science foundation, technological developments in both instrumentation and detectors are described.

Fundamentals in Nuclear Physics: From Nuclear Structure to Cosmology by Jean-Louis Basdevant
English | PDF | 2005 | 516 Pages | ISBN : 0387016724 | 5.2 MB

This course explores nuclear physics and its applications ranging from the structure of nuclei and their reactions, to astrophysics and cosmology. The physics is introduced with arguments based on simple ideas such as the empirical structure of nuclear forces and its interplay with the Pauli principle and Coulomb repulsion. The book then develops elementary nuclear models and illustrates nuclear systematics with experimental data. Reactions and decays are discussed both phenomenologically and from the point of view of fundamental electro-weak interaction theory. The discussions of fission and fusion emphasize nuclear energy production.

Mars: From Myth and Mystery to Recent Discoveries by Markus Hotakainen
English | PDF | 2009 | 274 Pages | ISBN : 0387765077 | 13.6 MB

Mars has always been shrouded in mystery. It is very difficult to resolve through a telescope. For many centuries it remained just a reddish blur in the sky. Even in ancient times, its blood-red color evoked fear and gave rise to myths and legends that are still with us today.

Astronomy is the science of studying the sky using telescopes and light collectors such as photographic plates or CCD detectors. However, people have always studied the sky and continue to study the sky without the aid of instruments this is the realm of cultural astronomy. This is the first scholarly collection of articles focused on the cultural astronomy of Africans.

Astronomical Optics and Elasticity Theory: Active Optics Methods by Gérard René Lemaitre
English | PDF | 2009 | 585 Pages | ISBN : 3540689044 | 11.2 MB

Astronomical Optics and Elasticity Theory provides a very thorough and comprehensive account of what is known in this field. After an extensive introduction to optics and elasticity, the book discusses variable curvature and multimode deformable mirrors, as well as, in depth, active optics, its theory and applications. Further, optical design utilizing the Schmidt concept and various types of Schmidt correctors, as well as the elasticity theory of thin plates and shells are elaborated upon. Several active optics methods are developed for obtaining aberration corrected diffraction gratings. Further, a weakly conical shell theory of elasticity is elaborated for the aspherization of grazing incidence telescope mirrors.

Le costellazioni al binocolo: Trecento oggetti celesti da riconoscere ed esplorare by Bojan Kambič
Italiano | PDF | 2013 | 332 Pages | ISBN : 884702708X | 16.6 MB

Questo libro è un tour guidato attraverso le costellazioni visibili dalle medie latitudini settentrionali. È un’opera ideale per chi si accosta per la prima volta all’osservazione del cielo, ma anche l’astrofilo esperto la troverà ricca e utile, per come è strutturata. Nella prima parte, il libro è un succinto trattatello di astronomia, di meccanica celeste, d’evoluzione stellare e di cosmologia. Nella seconda parte, vengono proposte mappe per riconoscere tutte le costellazioni visibili dai nostri cieli, e schede con informazioni particolareggiate relative alle stelle visibili a occhio nudo, oltre che ad alcune centinaia di oggetti (stelle doppie e variabili, ammassi stellari, nebulose, galassie) alla portata di un semplice binocolo 10×50.

"Era tempo che un’opera in italiano fosse consacrata interamente alle galassie, spiegando in modo semplice e accessibile a tutti ciò che conosciamo. È quello che è riuscito ad Alessandro Boselli, specialista di formazione stellare nelle galassie, il quale utilizza, oltre alle sue proprie osservazioni, i dati dei satelliti astronomici.

Le supernovae e i gamma-ray burst, gli eventi più catastrofici che si verificano nell’Universo, sono oggetto di studio nei campi più dinamici della moderna ricerca astronomica. Dei secondi ancora non conosciamo con precisione i meccanismi che li innescano e tuttavia forti indizi suggeriscono che, come nelle supernovae, la causa scatenante sia il collasso esplosivo di stelle di grande massa.
