TitleNumerical modelling of astrophysical turbulence
Author(s)Wolfram Schmidt
Description1 online resource (viii, 90 pages) : illustrations (some color)
Abstract NoteIn this "SpringerBrief" the author considers the underlying problems and questions that are common to numerical models of turbulence in different astrophysical systems. Turbulence has emerged as an important research topic in several areas of astrophysics. Understanding and modeling turbulence is particularly important for the dynamics of the interstellar medium, but also for the intergalactic medium, as well as in stars. The advancement of methods for numerical simulations of astrophysical turbulence, however, is still challenging because of gravity, strong compressibility, magnetic fields, and other effects. The book begins with a review of general aspects of numerical simulations of turbulence. In the main part the author presents findings from his numerical studies on astrophysical turbulence and discusses the astrophysical implications. He also explains in detail the numerical schemes utilized

TitleIntroduction to black hole astrophysics
Author(s)Gustavo E. Romero;Gabriela S. Vila
Description1 online resource (xviii, 318 pages) : illustrations
Abstract NoteThis book is based on the lecture notes of a one-semester course on black hole astrophysics given by the author and is aimed at advanced undergraduate and graduate students with an interest in astrophysics. The material included goes beyond that found in classic textbooks and presents details on astrophysical manifestations of black holes. In particular, jet physics and detailed accounts of objects like microquasars, active galactic nuclei, gamma-ray bursts, and ultra-luminous X-ray sources are covered, as well as advanced topics like black holes in alternative theories of gravity. The author avoids unnecessary technicalities and to some degree the book is self-contained. The reader will find some basic general relativity tools in Chapter 1. The appendices provide some additional mathematical details that will be useful for further study, and a guide to the bibliography on the subject

TitleFenomeni radioattivi : Dai nuclei alle stelle
Author(s)Giorgio Bendiscioli
Edition2a edizione
Description1 online resource (xvi, 498 pages)
Abstract NoteQuesto volume raccoglie le lezioni del Corso di Radioattivita impartite, inizialmente dall'autore e successivamente da suoi collaboratori, agli studenti di Fisica presso l'Universita di Pavia. I temi trattati costituiscono un'introduzione ai fenomeni radioattivi in senso stretto con escursioni, aventi come base di partenza e filo conduttore il decadimento beta, nel campo della fisica delle particelle elementari, in particolare dei neutrini, e dell'astrofisica. Alcuni argomenti sono tradizionali, altri riguardano la fisica di frontiera cosi che al lettore sono offerti particolari itinerari dalla fisica consolidata alla fisica in evoluzione. Ovviamente, per quanto riguarda quest'ultima, i risultati sperimentali riportati e i relativi commenti hanno carattere di provvisorieta. Per questa ragione, in questa edizione del testo, stata rivolta particolare attenzione all'aggiornamento dei risultati relativi allo studio dei neutrini nell'ambito del doppio decadimento beta e delle oscillazioni di neutrino. In ogni caso, gli argomenti discussi rappresentano una scelta, per qualche verso arbitraria, del vasto materiale disponibile e vengono proposti con carattere introduttivo e non esaustivo. La comprensione dei vari temi presuppone il possesso delle nozioni normalmente impartite nei primi tre anni del Corso di Laurea in Fisica
Contents NoteLegge del decadimento radioattivo -- Radiazione ambientale naturale -- Radiodatazione -- Decadimento gamma -- Decadimento alpha -- Nuclei e decadimenti esotici -- Decadimento beta -- Misura della massa del neutrino -- Non conservazione della parit nel decadimento beta -- Teoria di Dirac -- Teoria V - A del decadimento beta -- Energia solare -- I neutrini solari -- Neutrini massivi -- Doppio decadimento beta -- Oscillazioni di neutrino -- Appendice
