TitleAbout stars: Their Formation, Evolution, Compositions, Locations and Companions
Author(s)Michael M. Woolfson
PublicationNew Jersey, World Scientific Publishing Co. Pvt. Ltd., 202.
Descriptionxviii, 368p.
Abstract NoteOn a clear and moonless night, especially in remote areas such as deserts, myriads of points of light cover the sky. The great majority of them are stars, many like the Sun, but so far away that they can only be seen as point sources of light. The problem faced by astronomers is to find their properties and distances, just from the light they emit. This is done by using the knowledge of science, mainly physics, acquired from small-scale experiments carried out on Earth. However, the stars themselves are laboratories in which matter behaves in ways that cannot be reproduced on Earth so, in finding out about stars, we complement scientific knowledge gained from earthbound experimentation.

TitleNavigating the night sky: How to Identify the Stars and Constellations
Author(s)Guiherme De Almeida
PublicationLondon, Springer-Verlag, 2004.
Descriptionxii, 205p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteThis book will interest anyone who marvels at the night sky and would like to learn to recognise constellations and identify the brightest stars by name. Renowned amateur astronomer, Guilherme de Almeida, dispels the myth that specialist knowledge and elaborate instruments are a prerequisite for all astronomical observation. His book emphasizes the point that getting to know the night sky with the naked eye is an essential platform from which to start any astronomical observation. Step-by-step, the reader is guided through the knowledge needed to recognise key constellations, identify stars and planets, and interpret changes in the overall appearance of the sky throughout the year. The text is enhanced by the use of maps and illustrations, making this practical guide an invaluable text for all but the most advanced amateur astronomers.

TitleViewing the constellations with binoculars: 250+ Wonderful Sky Objects to See and Explore
Author(s)Kambic Bojan
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2010.
Descriptionxiv, 518p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteThe night sky is filled with stellar wonders, sparkling jewels that hide within them fantastic faraway suns. The ancients saw pictures formed by the stars and thus were born the constellations, which are still used today to identify and locate stars. After providing enough background information on astronomy to arm you for your trip, Bojan Kambic leads you through the major constellations seen in the northern skies, pointing out the most important sites and guiding you to finding them yourself using mainly just binoculars. You will soon find yourself becoming familiar with the best equipment to use, the best times to observe, and the best conditions in which to observe. You will also soon find yourself at home among the stars, seeking out new challenges and enjoying repeated visits with old friends.

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.

TitleWhat are the stars?
Author(s)G. Srinivasan
PublicationHyderabad, Universities Press, 2011.
Descriptionxiii, 246p.
Series(The Present Revolution in Astronomy)
Abstract NoteThis is the first volume in the series ‘The Present Revolution in Astronomy’ authored by G Srinivasan. The outstanding question in astronomy at the turn of the twentieth century was: what are the stars and why are they as they are? In this volume, the story of how the answer to this fundamental question was unravelled is narrated in an informal style, with emphasis on the underlying physics. It also gives an overview of the topics that will be covered in later volumes white dwarfs, neutron stars, black holes, galaxies, and the universe at large. I know of no comparable book in the present-day literature that so successfully conveys the excitement of the development of ideas pertaining to the physics of stars, including the newest discoveries, and at the same time explains the fundamentals so well.
