Title  Magnetohydrodynamics in Binary Stars 
Author(s)  Campbell, C. G 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XVII, 474 p. 65 illus : online resource 
Abstract Note  Magnetism in binary stars is an area of central importance in stellar astrophysics. The second edition of "Magnetohydrodynamics in Binary Stars" is a major revision of the first edition. The material has been updated and extended, including additional chapters on the origins of the stellar magnetic fields and accretion disc magnetic winds. A comprehensive account is given of the subject, from the early work up to the latest results. The unifying theme remains the redistribution of angular momentum by magnetic stresses. This occurs in a wide variety of ways, including magnetic stellar and orbital coupling, magnetic channelling of accretion streams, magnetic stellar coupling to accretion discs, dynamo field coupling in discs, and magnetic stellar and disc winds. The associated stellar spin and orbital evolution problems, including stability, are also considered. Although the main focus is on binary stars, much of the work on accretion discs and wind flows has more general astrophysical relevance. Convenient formulae are included that can be compared to observations, making the book useful to observers as well as theorists, and there are extensive reference lists. The material is mainly aimed at research workers, but parts of the text could be useful for postgraduate courses in magnetic stellar astrophysics topics

Title  Exploring the Universe: From Near Space to ExtraGalactic : A Collection of Research Reviews on Contemporary Astrophysics and Space Science 
Author(s)  Mukhopadhyay, Banibrata;Sasmal, Sudipta 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XXI, 653 p. 234 illus., 7 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This Festschrift dedicated to the 60th birth anniversary of Prof. Sandip K. Chakrabarti, a wellknown Indian astrophysicist, presents a collection of contributions by about fifty scientists who work on diverse topics in contemporary astrophysics and space science including new and lowcost balloon borne experiments, planetary science, astrochemistry and the origin of life, ionospheric research and earthquake predictions, relativistic astrophysics around black holes, and finally, the observational signatures and radiative properties of compact objects. All the authors are well known scholars in their respective subject and are all PhD students of Prof. Sandip K. Chakrabarti. The book demonstrates a twodimensional evolution of research areas triggered by Sandip Chakrabarti over the past few decades. The first dimension represents the evolution and diversification of Chakrabarti???s own research in which new students were trained. A second dimension arises from the evolution of the research topics pursued by Chakrabarti???s fifty odd doctoral students, many of whom have become renowned scientists in their own right, after starting with a certain subject under Chakrabarti and then migrating to completely new subjects with dexterity. The editors have compiled and edited the articles appropriately to some extent to suit the spirit of this Festschrift on the one hand and to keep balance in diverse topics on the other. Thus this volume also provides an overview for whosoever wishes to enter the important subjects of compact objects, astrochemistry, ionospheric science or space exploration in near space. New graduates, PhD scholars, teachers and researchers will benefit from this volume. Moreover it is a record of tremendous success of a school in a range of vast topics

Title  Mathematical Modelling of Meteoroid Streams 
Author(s)  Ryabova, Galina O 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  VIII, 68 p. 16 illus., 8 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Modern computer power and highprecision observational data have greatly improved the reliability of meteoroid stream models. At present, scientific research calls for two kinds of models: precise ones for individual streams, and statistically averaged ones for Solar System dust distribution models. Thus, there is a wide field of study open to stream modellers. This brief describes stepbystep computer simulations of meteoroid stream formation and evolution. Detailed derivations of relevant formulae are given, along with plenty of helpful, digestible figures explaining the subtleties of the method. Each theoretical section ends with examples aimed to help readers practice and master the material. Most of the examples are based on the Geminid meteoroid stream model, which has been developed by the author in the last 30 years. The book is intended for researchers interested in meteor astronomy and mathematical modelling, and it is also accessible to physics and astrophysics students

Title  Development of a Numerical Simulation Method for Rocky Body Impacts and Theoretical Analysis of Asteroidal Shapes 
Author(s)  Sugiura, Keisuke 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2020. 
Description  XIII, 134 p. 57 illus., 55 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book describes numerical simulations of collisions between asteroids, based on a unique numerical code developed by the author. The code accurately solves the elastic dynamic equations and describes the effects of fracture and friction, which makes it possible to investigate the shapes of impact outcomes produced by asteroid collisions and subsequent gravitational accumulation of fragments. The author parallelizes the code with high parallelization efficiency; accordingly, it can be used to conduct highresolution simulations with the aid of supercomputers and clarify the shapes of small remnants produced through the catastrophic destruction of asteroids. The author demonstrates that flat asteroids can only be produced by impacts involving objects with similar mass and low velocity, which suggests that the flat asteroids in our solar system were created in the planet formation era and have kept their shapes until today. The author also shows that asteroid collisions under certain conditions can produce the extremely elongated shape of an interstellar minor body, 1I/???Oumuamua. In brief, the book offers a comprehensive investigation of asteroid impacts and shapes, making it a uniquely valuable resource

Title  Explaining Lithium Enriched Red Giant Branch Stars 
Author(s)  AguileraG??mez, Claudia 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XIII, 131 p. 43 illus., 23 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This thesis provides new insights into the seemingly anomalous ubiquity of lithiumrich red giant stars. The theory of stellar evolution, one of the most successful models of modern astrophysics, predicts that red giant stars should display negligible levels of lithium (Li) on their surfaces. However, Lirich giants, defined as those showing more than three times the Li content of the Sun, are found everywhere astronomers look in apparent defiance of established theory. The author addresses this problem, analyzing the different possible explanations for such an anomaly, which include interaction with a binary companion, the production of Li in the interior of the star with its subsequent transport to stellar exteriors, and the stellar interaction with planets. The author focuses on this last possibility, where the Li enrichment may be due to the ingestion of planets or brown dwarfs as the stars in question grew in size while becoming giants. She shows that this process is indeed able to explain an important fraction of giants with Li levels above the three times solar threshold, but that some other mechanism is needed to explain the remaining fraction. While this is an important discovery in its own right, the result that makes this thesis groundbreaking is its demonstration that the threshold between Linormal and Lirich is mass dependent rather than a fixed proportion of the Sun???s content. This corrects a fundamental misapprehension of the phenomenon and opens up a new framework in which to understand and solve the problem. Finally, the author presents interesting observational applications and samples with which to test this new approach to the problem of Li enrichment in giants

Title  Characterizing Space Plasmas : A Data Driven Approach 
Author(s)  Parks, George K 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XX, 332 p. 95 illus., 47 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This didactic book uses a datadriven approach to connect measurements made by plasma instruments to the real world. This approach makes full use of the instruments??? capability and examines the data at the most detailed level an experiment can provide. Students using this approach will learn what instruments can measure, and working with realworld data will pave their way to models consistent with these observations. While conceived as a teaching tool, the book contains a considerable amount of new information. It emphasizes recent results, such as particle measurements made from the Cluster ion experiment, explores the consequences of new discoveries, and evaluates new trends or techniques in the field. At the same time, the author ensures that the physical concepts used to interpret the data are general and widely applicable. The topics included help readers understand basic problems fundamental to space plasma physics. Some are appearing for the first time in a space physics textbook. Others present different perspectives and interpretations of old problems and models that were previously considered incontestable. This book is essential reading for graduate students in space plasma physics, and a useful reference for the broader astrophysics community.

Title  A Short Course in General Relativity and Cosmology 
Author(s)  Hentschke, Reinhard;H??lbling, Christian 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  IX, 296 p. 122 illus., 67 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  Unlike most traditional introductory textbooks on relativity and cosmology that answer questions like ???Does accelerated expansion pull our bodies apart????, ???Does the presence of dark matter affect the classical tests of general relativity???? in a qualitative manner, the present text is intended as a foundation, enabling students to read and understand the textbooks and many of the scientific papers on the subject. And, above all, the readers are taught and encouraged to do their own calculations, check the numbers and answer the above and other questions regarding the most exciting discoveries and theoretical developments in general relativistic cosmology, which have occurred since the early 1980s. In comparison to these intellectual benefits the text is short. In fact, its brevity without neglect of scope or mathematical accessibility of key points is rather unique. The authors connect the necessary mathematical concepts and their reward, i.e. the understanding of an important piece of modern physics, along the shortest path. The unavoidable mathematical concepts and tools are presented in as straightforward manner as possible. Even though the mathematics is not very difficult, it certainly is beneficial to know some statistical thermodynamics as well as some quantum mechanics. Thus the text is suitable for the upper undergraduate curriculum

Title  Beyond ??CDM : Exploring Alternatives to the Standard Cosmological Paradigm 
Author(s)  Bose, Sownak 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2018. 
Description  XXXIV, 181 p. 49 illus., 31 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book employs computer simulations of ???artificial??? Universes to investigate the properties of two popular alternatives to the standard candidates for dark matter (DM) and dark energy (DE). It confronts the predictions of theoretical models with observations using a sophisticated semianalytic model of galaxy formation. Understanding the nature of dark matter (DM) and dark energy (DE) are two of the most central problems in modern cosmology. While their important role in the evolution of the Universe has been well established???namely, that DM serves as the building blocks of galaxies, and that DE accelerates the expansion of the Universe???their true nature remains elusive. In the first half, the authors consider ???sterile neutrino??? DM, motivated by recent claims that these particles may have finally been detected. Using sophisticated models of galaxy formation, the authors find that future observations of the high redshift Universe and faint dwarf galaxies in the Local Group can place strong constraints on the sterile neutrino scenario. In the second half, the authors propose and test novel numerical algorithms for simulating Universes with a ???modified??? theory of gravity, as an alternative explanation to accelerated expansion. The authors??? techniques improve the efficiency of these simulations by more than a factor of 20 compared to previous methods, inviting the readers into a new era for precision cosmological tests of gravity

Title  Discoveries at the Frontiers of Science : From Nuclear Astrophysics to Relativistic Heavy Ion Collisions 
Author(s)  Kirsch, Johannes;Schramm, Stefan;SteinheimerFroschauer, Jan;St??cker, Horst 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XII, 374 p. 227 illus., 111 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  With contributions by leading theoreticians, this book presents the discoveries of hitherto hidden connections between seemingly unrelated fields of fundamental physics. The topics range from cosmology and astrophysics to nuclear, particle and heavyion science. A current example concerns the sensitivity of gravitational wave spectra to the phase structure of dense nuclear and quark matter in binary neutron star collisions. The contributions by Hanauske and Stoecker as well as Banik and Bandyopadhyay relate the consequent insights to hot dense nuclear matter created in supernova explosions and in highenergy heavyion collisions. Studies of the equation of state for neutron stars are also presented, as are those for nuclear matter in highenergy heavyion collisions. Other reviews focus on QCDthermodynamics, charmed mesons in the quarkgluon plasma, nuclear theory, extensions to the standard general theory of relativity, new experimental developments in heavy ion collisions and renewable energy networks. The book will appeal to advanced students and researchers seeking a broad view of current challenges in theoretical physics and their interconnections.
