Murdin P. (ed.) Encyclopedia of astronomy and astrophysics
Nature Publishing Group. 2001. 5306 p.

In a unique collaboration, Nature Publishing Group and Institute of Physics Publishing published the most extensive and comprehensive reference work in astronomy and astrophysics in both print and online formats. First published as a four volume print edition in 2001, the initial Web version went live in 2002, and contained the original print material and was rapidly supplemented with numerous updates and newly commissioned material. Since August 2004 the Encyclopedia is published solely by the Institute of Physics Publishing.

This unique resource covers the entire field of astronomy and astrophysics and this online version includes the full text of over 2,750 articles, plus sophisticated search and retrieval functionality, links to the primary literature, and is frequently updated with new material. An active editorial team, headed by the Encyclopedia's editor-in-chief, Paul Murdin, oversees the continual commissioning, reviewing and loading of new and revised content.

The Encyclopedia's authority is assured by editorial and advisory boards drawn from the world's foremost astronomers and astrophysicists. This first class resource will be an essential source of information for undergraduates, graduate students, researchers and seasoned professionals, as well as for committed amateurs, librarians and lay people wishing to consult the definitive astronomy and astrophysics reference work.

Wiley-Praxis Series in astronomy and astrophysics, John Wiley & Sons, 1997, - 205 pages. Cosmology is the study of the Universe as a whole. The currently accepted framework of how the Universe began and subsequently evolved is a collection of interrelated theories known generically as the Big Bang. It is this collection of the theories which we will be presenting in this book.

Springer, 2010. - 640 pages. The study of orbits in dynamical systems and the theory of order and chaos has progressed enormously over the last few decades. It thus became an essential tool in dynamical astronomy. The book is the first to provide a general overview of order and chaos in dynamical astronomy. The progress of the theory of chaos has a profound impact on galactic dynamics. It has even invaded celestial mechanics, since chaos was fou...

Wiley & Sons Ltd, Chichester, United Kingdom, 2011, 313 pages Distance determination is an essential technique in astronomy, and is briefly covered in most textbooks on astrophysics and cosmology. It is rarely covered as a coherent topic in its own right. When it is discussed the approach is frequently very dry, splitting the teaching into, for example, stars, galaxies and cosmologies, and as a consequence, books lack depth and are rarely c...

Springer, 2007. - 206 pages. Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series Astrophysics is a subject that is often - with some justification - regarded as extremely difficult, requiring at least degree-level mathematics as a prerequisite to its understanding. Consequently, many amateur astronomers just don't bother, and miss out on the fascinating fundamentals of the subject, and often on an understanding of exactly what they are observing. Mike...

Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Wiley-VCH, Weinheim, 2004, 396 pp. - ISBN-13: 978-0-471-82759-7. This book grew out of a course of the same title which each of us taught for several years in the Harvard astronomy department. We felt a need for a book on the subject of radiative processes emphasizing the physics rather than simply giving a collection of formulas. Contents Chapter 1 - Fundamentals of radiative transfer. Chapter 2 - Bas...
