Astrophysics of Gaseous Nebulae and Active Galactic Nuclei, second edition (Hardback)

Despatched in 2 business days.


Thoroughly revised, expanded and updated throughout,

this new edition of Astrophysics of Gaseous

Nebulae and Active Galactic

Nuclei is a graduate-level text and reference book on gaseous nebulae,

nova and supernova remnants, and the emission-line regions in Seyfert galaxies,

radio galaxies, quasars, and other types of active galactic nuclei. Much

of the new data and many of the new images are from the Hubble Space Telescope

and some of the largest ground-based telescopes in the world. Two wholly

new chapters have been added, one on infrared astronomy and the other on X-ray

astronomy, reflecting the great advances in these fields. This new edition

also contains two completely new appendices, one a long primer on the

quantum-mechanical concepts used in the analysis of nebular emission-line

spectra, and the other a briefer description of molecular spectra. Large

amounts of new data on dust in nebulae and quasars, and the photo-dissociated

regions containing neutral atoms, molecules, and dust within and around them,

have also been added to the book. Thus, the previous edition of this

classic text, which has been tried, tested, and widely used for thirty years,

has now been succeeded by a new, revised, updated, larger edition, which will be

valuable to anyone seriously interested in astrophysics.
