Item description for Astronomy & Astrophysics with CD-ROM (Physics) (Physics (Infinity Science Press)) by A. B. Bhattacharya...
The subject areas of astronomy and astrophysics have grown tremendously during the last few decades. New developments in radio astronomy and recent data retrieved from NASA s Hubble Space Telescope have resulted in many discoveries and created new interest in the study of the universe. Using four-color throughout, Astronomy & Astrophysics describes the different techniques and instruments employed in the study of the universe and the results obtained with discussion on both theory and observation. The book begins by building the fundamental concepts, theories of creation of the universe, formation of stars and galaxies, mysterious objects of the sky etc. Simultaneously it elaborates the instrumentation and observational schemes in both radio and optical. Finally, the current and future scopes of radio astronomy, new instrumental developments and supporting instrumentations like radio frequency interference monitoring setup and analysis have been explained in details which are rarely found in other texts. A CD-ROM with color figures and simulations accompanies the book. FEATURES Uses spectacular four-color photos throughout the book. Includes several chapters on radio astronomy and covers additional equipment for supporting radio astronomy like spectrum monitoring & data analysis, and some new instrumental developments for broadening the spectrum of the radio telescopes. Covers minor planets, the Big-Bang theory, black holes, the Einstein effect, and more. Accompanied by a CD-ROM containing simulations, color figures, and more. TABLE OF CONTENTS 1.
