Centennial History of the Carnegie Institution of Washington: Volume 1, The Mount Wilson Observatory: Breaking the Code of Cosmic Evolution Autor: Allan SandageSince its foundation in 1904, the Mount Wilson Observatory has been at the centre of the development of astrophysics. Perched atop a mountain wilderness, two mammoth solar tower telescopes and the 60- and 100-inch behemoth night-time reflectors, were all the largest in the world. Research has centred around two main themes - the evolution of stars, and the development of the universe. This first volume in a series of five histories of the Carnegie Institution describes the people and events, the challenges and successes that the Observatory has witnessed. It includes biographical sketches of forty of the most famous Mount Wilson pioneer astronomers working during the first half of the twentieth century. Contemporary photographs illustrate the development and use of some of the innovative instruments that filled the observatory during this time. This story brings together the elements that formed modern theories of stellar evolution and cosmology. Spis tre¶ci: Foreword Richard A. Meserve Acknowledgements Prologue Part I.

The General History of Astronomy: Volume 4, Astrophysics and Twentieth-Century Astronomy to 1950: Part A Autor: Edited by Owen GingerichVolume 4 of The General History of Astronomy, originally published in 1984, concerns the birth of modern astrophysics in the nineteenth century, the growth of astronomical institutions to around 1920, and the development of instrumentation. The volume commences in the 1850s, with the first astronomical applications of photography and spectral analysis. It closes in the 1950s, before the explosive growth made possible by new electronic devices and computers. In Part A, there are eleven chapters, written by an international panel of eighteen authors, on subjects such as observatories, large telescopes, astronomy in the southern hemisphere, and early radio astronomy. Intended for general readership, this book formed part of an in-depth synthesis of the development of astronomy from the earliest times. Spis tre¶ci: Foreword Preface Acknowledgements Part I.

Photographs of Stars, Star-Clusters and Nebulae 2 Volume Paperback Set Autor: Isaac RobertsA geologist and fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, Isaac Roberts (1829–1904) made significant contributions to the photography of star-clusters and nebulae. By championing reflecting rather than refracting telescopes, Roberts was able to perceive previously unnoticed star-clusters, and was the first person to identify the spiral shape of the Great Andromeda Nebula. Roberts' use of telescopes for photographing stars provided greater definition of stellar phenomena than previously used hand-drawings. Although Roberts' conclusions about the nature of the nebulae he photographed were not always correct, and sometimes misinterpreted by others, the book is significant for the possibilities it suggests for nebular photography. Published in 1893 and 1899, these volumes represent the summation of his work with his assistant W. S. Franks at his observatory in Crowborough, Sussex. Lavishly illustrated, the books contain descriptions of instruments and methodology, and Roberts' theory of the stars' origins and nature. Spis tre¶ci: Volume 1: Preface Isaac Roberts' observatory, Crowborough Hill Isaac Roberts' telescopes List of the plates List of the abbreviations 1. The negatives 2. Arrangement of the photographs 3. Epoch of the Fiducial stars (A.D. 1900) 4. A table for converting measurements in right ascensions into intervals of time 5.

Highlights of Astronomy Cambridge Univeristy Press

Księgarnia / Cambridge University Press / Astronomia ogólna

Highlights of Astronomy: Volume 14 Autor: Edited by Karel van der HuchtRecording the proceedings of the IAU XXVI General Assembly, this volume of the IAU Highlights of Astronomy covers virtually all aspects of modern astrophysics as discussed by 2400 participants from 73 countries. Notably, the common aspects of astrophysical phenomena known to exist in widely differing interstellar environments is thoroughly examined, providing fertile cross correlation from one specialisation to another. This text highlights the importance of the triennial IAU General Assemblies in bringing together the work of observers and theoreticians in widely different fields, but working towards a common goal: understanding the physics of the Universe.

Tracing the Ancestry of Galaxies (IAU S277) Autor: Edited by Claude Carignan, Kenneth C. Freeman, Françoise CombesWe are living in the golden era of multiwavelength astronomical observations, probing deep areas of the sky. Sophisticated instruments allow us to compare galaxies at high redshifts, when the Universe was only a few hundred millions years old, with the mature nearby galaxies we see today. This is yielding new insights into the mass assembly and the star formation history of galaxies that may, or may not, be compatible with our current theoretical models. IAU Symposium 277 addresses the major open questions concerning the evolution of galaxies, specifically: can we really apply the knowledge gained from low-redshift studies to the high-redshift galaxy populations, given the strong apparent differences in their observed properties? In this volume theorists and observers attempt to reach a common understanding of the puzzles that galaxy research has recently unfolded, largely through the study of galaxy dynamics and their stellar populations at low and high redshifts. Spis tre¶ci: Preface 1. Large photometric (UV, optical, IR) surveys 2. Large HI and CO surveys 3. Large 3D kinematical surveys – low z 4. Large 3D kinematical surveys – high z 5. Stellar populations in the local universe and at high z and galaxy evolution 6. Teaching aids for astronomy and virtual observatory (VO) 7.

The Infrared Spectral Region of Stars Cambridge Univeristy Press

Księgarnia / Cambridge University Press / Astrofizyka

The Infrared Spectral Region of Stars Autor: Edited by Carlos Jaschek, Y. AndrillatThis book provides a review of the work in progress on the infrared spectral region of stars. The most important previous mission, the Infrared Astronomy Satellite (IRAS) was launched in 1983. Although it was only operating for one year, in that time it surveyed the whole sky for infrared emitters of many different kinds providing a fundamental catalogue of thousands of objects. As a consequence of its success, a new mission to observe the infrared sky is being planned. The Infrared Space Observatory (ISO) is scheduled for a launch in May 1993. It should add substantially to our knowledge of the stars. The volume is based on the proceedings of an international conference held in Montpellier, France. It provided an excellent forum for the experts in the field to get together and evaluate the status of current knowledge and analyse the instrumentation. Spis tre¶ci: 1. Stars in the infrared: results from IRAS H. J. G. L. M. Lamers and L. B. F. M. Watera 2. What is expected from ISO J. P. Baluteau 3. New infrared instrumentation S. Bensammar 4. High resolution atomic spectroscopy in the infrared and its application to astrophysics S. Johansson 5. Spectroscopy of early -type stars C. Jaschek 6. Spectroscopy of late type stars U. F.
