This book is one of 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 found in the solar system which in the past was considered as a prototype of order. The book provides a unifying approach to these topics from an author who has spent more than 50 years of research in the field. The first part treats order and chaos in general. The other two parts deal with order and chaos in galaxies and with other applications in dynamical astronomy, ranging from celestial mechanics to general relativity and cosmology.

This book is intended as an introduction to the field of planetary systems at the postgraduate level. It consists of four extensive lectures on Hamiltonian dynamics, celestial mechanics, the structure of extrasolar planetary systems and the formation of planets. As such, this volume is particularly suitable for those who need to understand the substantial connections between these different topics.

In early April 1911 Albert Einstein arrived in Prague to become full professor of theoretical physics at the German part of Charles University. It was there, for the first time, that he concentrated primarily on the problem of gravitation. Before he left Prague in July 1912 he had submitted the paper “Relativität und Gravitation: Erwiderung auf eine Bemerkung von M. Abraham” in which he remarkably anticipated what a future theory of gravity should look like. At the occasion of the Einstein-in-Prague centenary an international meeting was organized under a title inspired by Einstein's last paper from the Prague period: "Relativity and Gravitation, 100 Years after Einstein in Prague". The main topics of the conference included: classical relativity, numerical relativity, relativistic astrophysics and cosmology, quantum gravity, experimental aspects of gravitation and conceptual and historical issues. The conference attracted over 200 scientists from 31 countries, among them a number of leading experts in the field of general relativity and its applications. This volume includes abstracts of the plenary talks and full texts of contributed talks and articles based on the posters presented at the conference. These describe primarily original results of the authors. Full texts of the plenary talks are included in the volume "General Relativity, Cosmology and Astrophysics--Perspectives 100 Years after Einstein in Prague", eds. J. Bičák and T. Ledvinka, published also by Springer Verlag.

For many years I was organizing a weekly seminar on dynamical astronomy, and I used to make some historical remarks on every subject, including some anecdotes from my contacts with many leading scientists over the years. I described also the development of various subjects and the emergence of new ideasindynamicalastronomy. Thenseveralpeoplepromptedmetowritedown these remarks, which cannot be found in papers, or books. Thus, I decided to write this book, which contains my experiences over the years. I hope that this book may be helpful to astronomy students all over the world. During my many years of teaching, as a visiting professor, in American Universities (1962-1994, Yale, Harvard, MIT, Cornell, Chicago, Maryland and Florida) I was impressed by the quality of my graduate students. Most of them were very bright, asking penetrating questions, and preparing their homework in a perfect way. In a few cases, instead of a ?nal examination, I assigned to them some small research projects and they presented their results at the end of the course. They were excellent in preparing the appropriate slides and in presenting their results in a concise and clear way.

Covering topics of radio astronomy, this book contains graduate-level problems with carefully presented solutions. The problems are arranged following the content of the book "Tools of Radio Astronomy" by Rohlfs and Wilson (also available in this series) on a chapter-by-chapter basis. Some of these problems have been formulated to provide an extension to the material presented in "Tools of Radio Astronomy".

Der nach Stephen Hawking prominenteste Astrophysiker des Planeten hat das ultimative Kompendium über den Kosmos verfasst. In Neil deGrasse Tysons Bestseller ist alles versammelt, was wir über das Universum wissen: über Exoplaneten und Dunkle Energie, über Zwerggalaxien und den Urknall. Der Autor begeistert wie kein Zweiter mit funkelndem Witz für die Wunder des Weltalls. Zugleich regt er zum Nachdenken über unseren Platz im Universum an und zu Demut angesichts kosmischer Skalen. Sein „Universum für Eilige“ ist das perfekte Buch für alle, die auf nur 200 Seiten die heutige Astrophysik verstehen – und sich dabei auf hohem Niveau unterhalten lassen möchten.

Dynamics is a text aimed at graduate students and advanced undergraduates in astronomy and physics; its scope is appropriate to a one-semester course. Its coverage of celestial dynamics includes a discussion of three-body effects, resonances, and chaos. The section on stellar dynamics covers potentials, orbits, collisionless stellar systems, and collisional effects such as dynamical friction and relaxation. Its final section on gas dynamics discusses topics such as turbulence, gas accretion (including accretion disks) and gas outflow (including winds and jets). Dynamics is part of the Ohio State Graduate Astrophysics Series, in which emphasis is placed on order-of-magnitude calculations and the development of physical insight. Version 1.1: updated to correct typographical errors

The Solar System is a complex and fascinating dynamical system. This is the first textbook to describe comprehensively the dynamical features of the Solar System and to provide students with all the mathematical tools and physical models they need to understand how it works. It is a benchmark publication in the field of planetary dynamics and destined to become a classic. Clearly written and well illustrated, Solar System Dynamics shows how a basic knowledge of the two- and three-body problems and perturbation theory can be combined to understand features as diverse as the tidal heating of Jupiter's moon Io, the origin of the Kirkwood gaps in the asteroid belt, and the radial structure of Saturn's rings. Problems at the end of each chapter and a free Internet Mathematica® software package are provided. Solar System Dynamics provides an authoritative textbook for courses on planetary dynamics and celestial mechanics. It also equips students with the mathematical tools to tackle broader courses on dynamics, dynamical systems, applications of chaos theory and non-linear dynamics.

Jahrtausendelang war für uns Menschen das eigene Universum so unbegreiflich, dass der Gedanke an andere Welten unvorstellbar war. Erst die moderne Physik mit der Theorie der Multiversen schuf die Voraussetzung, andere, neue Universen zu beschreiben, wie sie nach den Gesetzen der Physik möglich sind. John Barrow zeigt uns die bislang entdeckten Lösungen für Einsteins Universumsgleichung in diesem faszinierenden Buch: rotierende und unberechenbare, sich aufblähende und schrumpfende, heiße und kalte, bucklige und glatte, flache Universen und solche mit einem Loch in der Mitte, Universen voller Leben und Universen, die plötzlich aufhören zu existieren. Eine spektakuläre Reise in die fantastischen Welten der modernen Kosmologie – und an die Grenzen unseres eigenen Vorstellungsvermögens.

Hans Bonnets umfassendes Lexikon behandelt alle denkbaren Aspekte der Religion im alten Ägypten. Ausführliche Einträge gibt es nicht nur zu den einzelnen Gottheiten, den wichtigsten religiösen Tempeln und Stätten, sondern auch zu allen Themen des Totenkultes. Intensiv werden die Techniken der Mumifizierung beschrieben, die einzelnen Grabbeigaben sowie die Wanderung der Seele ins Reich der Toten erläutert. Zahlreiche Strichzeichnungen von Göttern, Hieroglyphen und Tempeln beleben den Band. Dem Autor gelingt es, einen Ausgleich von Wissenschaftlichkeit und leichter Lesbarkeit herzustellen. Dies hat in den ersten beiden Auflagen zu dem großen Erfolg des Lexikons beigetragen.
