TitleCan stars find peace?
Author(s)G. Srinivasan
PublicationHyderabad, Universities Press, 2011.
Descriptionxiii, 254p.
Abstract NoteWhat will happen to a star when its supply of nuclear energy is exhausted? Will it collapse to a point and disappear from this Universe? Or, is there a new twist to the story? In this book, the second volume of the series ‘The Present Revolution in Astronomy’ authored by G Srinivasan, the story of the life history of the stars is narrated in a lucid manner, with the necessary physics background developed in a systematic fashion. The first part deals with the great developments of the 1930s. This includes the great discovery by Chandrasekhar and the subsequent prediction of supernovae, neutron stars and black holes. The second part of the book is devoted to a discussion of the modern perspective of stellar evolution. I know of no other book on the evolution of stars of a similar scope and breadth that is so accessible for undergraduate students.

TitleTarakanchya vishwat
Author(s)Parag Mahajani
PublicationPune, Mehta Publishing House, 2005.
Description336p.
Contents NoteThis book will provide some direct help in observational astronomy. It will also allow comparison of traditions in different civilizations and to understand the development of human thought and intellect. Reading this book will help students to follow the concepts such as "Nakshatras' and other traditional Indian astronomical concept, which are archaic and simultaneously modern, playing an important role in modern rituals based on more ancient apparently mysterious concepts of this and other ideas.

TitleCosmic Catastrophes: Exploding Stars, Black Holes, and Mapping the Universe 2nd ed
Author(s)J. Craig Wheeler
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2000.
Descriptionxv, 288p.
Abstract NoteFrom supernovae and gamma-ray bursts to the accelerating Universe, this is an exploration of the intellectual threads that lead to some of the most exciting ideas in modern astrophysics and cosmology. This fully updated second edition incorporates new material on binary stars, black holes, gamma-ray bursts, worm-holes, quantum gravity and string theory. It covers the origins of stars and their evolution, the mechanisms responsible for supernovae, and their progeny, neutron stars and black holes. It examines the theoretical ideas behind black holes and their manifestation in observational astronomy and presents neutron stars in all their variety known today. This book also covers the physics of the twentieth century, discussing quantum theory and Einstein's gravity, how these two theories collide, and the prospects for their reconciliation in the twenty-first century. This will be essential reading for undergraduate students in astronomy and astrophysics, and an excellent, accessible introduction for a wider audience.
