The Stars: Their Structure and Evolution

The Stars: Their Structure and Evolution
de Roger John Tayler(Ed. Cambridge University Press) Isbn : 0521460638
59.06 €
This textbook gives a clear account of the manner in which knowledge in many branches of physics such as gravitation, thermodynamics, atomic physics and nuclear physics can be combined to gain an understanding of the structure and evolution of stars. A major aim is to present the subject as one in which advances are still being made. The first half is an account of the observational properties of stars and a discussion of the equations that govern their structure. The second part discusses recent theoretical work on stellar evolution. The successes of the theory are stressed, but attention is also drawn to phenomena that are not completely understood. This is a new edition of a widely-used textbook first published in 1970. New topics include mass loss from stars and close binary stars.

Stellar Structure and Evolution

Stellar Structure and Evolution
de Alfred Weigert, Rudolf Kippenhahn(Ed. Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH Co. K) Isbn : 3540580131
73.80 €
This text gives a complete and comprehensive treatment of the physics of the stellar 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 a star's life. The authors have written a unique text based on their own pioneering work in stellar modeling. Since its publication, this textbook has come to be considered a classic by readers and teachers in astrophysics. This study edition is meant for graduate students in astronomy and physics alike.

The Field Guide Art of Roger Tory Peterson: Western Birds

The Field Guide Art of Roger Tory Peterson: Western Birds
de Roger Tory Peterson(Ed. Houghton Mifflin (Trade)) Isbn : 0395643562
142.50 €
This splendid, two-volume boxed set features all 300 color plates from Peterson's Eastern (Houghton, 1980) and Western (Houghton, 1990) field guides reproduced for the first time in the full size of the originals (9 x 1412 vs. 412 x 714 in the - guides). The words most often used to describe these paintings are formal , patternistic , schematic , simple , and direct. They masterfully synthesize and distill the essence and uniqueness of each species. Here they are grouped into nine categories (Birds of Prey, Swimmers, Fowl-like Birds, etc.), each with a short, informed introduction. In the important overall introduction, Peterson summarizes the history of American ornithological illustration, the origins of field guides, and his early life and associations with the National Audubon Society,...

Women in Ichthyology: An Anthology in Honour of Et, Ro and Genie

Women in Ichthyology: An Anthology in Honour of Et, Ro and Genie
de Michael N. Bruton, Eugene K. Balon(Ed. Kluwer Academic Publishers) Isbn : 0792331656
308.31 €
This special volume is dedicated to the contributions of women ichthyologists. Three colleagues were selected to represent all women ichthyologists, Ethelwynn Trewavas (ET), Rosemary Lowe-McConnell (Ro) and Eugenie Clark (Genie). All have had distinguished professional careers and have contributed in their own ways to their science. The career of each is highlighted by a personal interview with one of the editors of the volume, a bibliography of their lifetime publications, and a biography of their careers. Questions of historical inequities and current controversies in the treatment of women ichthyologists by their peers are raised and addressed by the women themselves. The personal and professional influences of these three women, and other women ichthyologists, are highlighted. A survey...
