Описание: The book deals with collective and stochastic processes in astrophysical disks involving theory, observations, and the results of modelling. Among others, it
examines the spiral-vortex structure in galactic and accretion disks, stochastic and ordered structures in the developed turbulence. It also describes sources of turbulence in the
accretion disks, internal structure of disk in
he vicinity of a black hole, numerical modelling of envelopes in binaries, gaseous disks in spiral galaxies with shock waves formation, observation of accretion disks in a binary system
and mass distribution of luminous matter in disk galaxies.
The editors adeptly brought together collective and stochastic phenomena in the modern field of astrophysical disks,
their formation, structure, and evolution involving the methodology to deal with, the results of observation and modelling, thereby advancing the study in this important branch of
astrophysics and benefiting professional researchers, lecturers, and graduate students.

Описание: In all phases of the life of a star, hydrodynamical processes play a major role. This volume gives a comprehensive overview of the state of knowledge in stellar astrophysical fluid dynamics, and its publication marked the 60th birthday of Douglas Gough, Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge and leading contributor to stellar astrophysical fluid dynamics. Topics include properties of pulsating stars, helioseismology, convection and mixing in stellar interiors, dynamics of stellar rotation, planet formation and the generation of stellar and planetary magnetic fields. Each chapter is written by leading experts in the field, and the book provides an overview that is central to any attempt to understand the properties of stars and their evolution. With extensive references to the technical literature, this is a valuable text for researchers and graduate students in stellar astrophysics.
Описание: UV and X-ray spectroscopy of astrophysical and laboratory plasmas draws interest from many disciplines. Contributions from international specialists are collected together in this book from a timely recent conference. In astrophysics, the Hubble Space Telescope, Astro 1 and ROSAT observatories are now providing UV and X-ray spectra and images of cosmic sources in unprecedented detail, while the Yohkoh mission recently collected superb data on the solar corona. In the laboratory, the development of ion-trap facilities and novel laser experiments are providing vital new data on high temperature plasmas. Recent innovations in the technology of spectroscopic instrumentation are discussed. These papers constitute an excellent up-to-date review of developments in short-wave length spectroscopy and offer a solid introduction to its theoretical and experimental foundations.

Описание: The peculiar and important characteristic of this book is to present numerical simulations and models of both stellar and extragalactic jets, together with review papers outlining the state-of-the-art of the observations of jets.In fact, other books on jets deal either with stellar jets or extragalactic jets separately but are lacking, until now, a more global view. The authors of these contributions are among the most active scientists in the field of theoretical interpretation of the astrophysical jets phenomenology.The book is intended for readers that are carrying out research in the fields of accretion and outflow phenomena in astrophysics, star formation, Active Galactic Nuclei, computational fluid dynamics and magneto-hydrodynamics applied to astrophysics.
Описание: As the 21st century begins, gravitational wave astronomy is poised for unprecedented expansion and discovery. This workshop focussed on ground-based gravitational wave detectors and the astrophysical sources they are expected to observe. The main purpose of the meeting was to bring together gravitational wave physicists, astronomers, astrophysicists, and numerical relativists to assess the current state of the field, and to provide a forum to generate future strategies and collaborations.

Описание: The r-process is a major mechanism for producing elements heavier than Fe. In this book, a summary of recent developments in theoretical, experimental and
observational studies of the r-process are presented in 25 contributions. The collected papers are
p to date, comprehensive and yet concise.
The topics covered include experiments on nuclei far from stability, nuclear theory input for the r-process, observational and
theoretical studies on abundances of heavy nuclei, and astrophysical models of the r-process.

Описание: Fluid dynamical forces drive most of the fundamental processes in the Universe and so play a crucial role in our understanding of astrophysics. This comprehensive textbook introduces the necessary fluid dynamics to understand a wide range of astronomical phenomena, from stellar structures to supernovae blast waves, to accretion discs. The authors’ approach is to introduce and derive the fundamental equations, supplemented by text that conveys a more intuitive understanding of the subject, and to emphasise the observable phenomena that rely on fluid dynamical processes. The textbook has been developed for use by final year undergraduate and starting graduate students of astrophysics, and contains over fifty exercises. It is based on the authors' many years of teaching their astrophysical fluid dynamics course at the University of Cambridge.
