TitleNucleosynthesis and chemical evolution of galaxies
Author(s)Bernard Pagel
EditionSecond edition
Description1 online resource (xvii, 466 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteThe distribution of elements in the cosmos is the result of many processes, and it provides a powerful tool to study the Big Bang, the density of baryonic matter, nucleosynthesis and the formation and evolution of stars and galaxies. Covering many exciting topics in astrophysics and cosmology, this textbook, by a pioneer of the field, provides a lucid and wide-ranging introduction to the interdisciplinary subject of galactic chemical evolution for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. It is also an authoritative overview for researchers and professional scientists. This new edition includes results from recent space missions and new material on abundances from stellar populations, nebular analysis, and meteoric isotopic anomalies, and abundance analysis of X-ray gas. Simple derivations for key results are provided, together with problems and helpful solution hints, enabling the student to develop an understanding of results from numerical models and real observations
Contents NoteIntroduction and overview -- Thermonuclear reactions -- Cosmic abundances of elements and isotopes -- Cosmological nucleosynthesis and abundances of light elements -- Outline of stellar structure and evolution -- Neutron capture processes -- Galactic chemical evolution : basic concepts and issues -- Some specific GCE models and related observational data -- Origin and evolution of light elements -- Radioactive cosmochronology -- Chemical evolution in other sorts of galaxies -- Cosmic chemical evolution and diffuse background radiation -- Appendix 1: Some historical landmarks -- Appendix 2: Some physical and astronomical constants -- Appendix 3: Time-dependent perturbation theory and transition probabilities -- Appendix 4: Polytropic stellar models -- Appendix 5: Dissipation and abundance gradients -- Appendix 6: Hints for problems

TitleCosmochemistry : the melting pot of the elements : XIII Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics, Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife, Spain, November 19-30, 2001
Author(s)edited by C. Esteban [and others]
Description1 online resource (xiii, 298 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteThe chemical composition of the Universe has evolved over billions of years. A host of astrophysical processes and observations must be understood in order to explain why celestial objects have the chemical compositions observed. Originally published in 2004, this book contains the lectures delivered at the XIII Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics, which was dedicated to reviewing current knowledge about the origin and evolution of the chemical elements in the Universe. Written by seven prestigious astrophysics researchers, it covers cosmological and stellar nucleosynthesis, abundance determinations in stars and ionised nebulae, chemical composition of nearby and distant galaxies, and models of chemical evolution of galaxies and intracluster medium. This is a timely review of developments in cosmochemistry over the last decade

TitleAn introduction to cosmochemistry
Author(s)Charles R. Cowley
Description1 online resource (xii, 490 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteThis textbook describes the composition and evolution of material objects in the universe. The survey begins with a discussion of terrestrial materials and ends with the composition of quasars and distant galaxies. There are two main themes: chemical processes responsible for the abundances we observe, and nuclear processes in which the chemical elements originate. The author presents a total pedagogic synthesis of the subject, building on the basic information in the first chapters leading into a fuller explanation of the composition of the planets and stellar and primordial nucleosynthesis. The later chapters treat the analytical methods of stellar and nebular spectra, and move on to the composition of stars and galaxies. The book is fully referenced and includes problem sets

TitleThe behavior of chemical elements in stars
Author(s)Carlos Jaschek and Mercedes Jaschek
Description1 online resource (xiii, 324 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteDespite more than one century of observational stellar spectroscopy, the resulting data is not available in an easily accessible format. The necessity of such basic information is greater than ever, because new wavelength regions (ultraviolet, infrared) are now accessible and modern receivers can only analyse short stretches of spectra, so that a careful pre-selection of strategic elements is mandatory. This book presents a summary of our knowledge of the behaviour of all chemical elements identified in stars, based on observations rather than on their interpretations. Whenever possible the behaviour is described quantitatively, with the help of equivalent widths in different types of stars, or different ionization stages, for both absorption and emission features. It will provide an authoritative reference book for the astrophysical community

TitleWater in the universe
Author(s)Arnold Hanslmeier
PublicationDordrecht, Springer, 2011.
Description1 online resource (xiv, 239 p.) : ill. (some col.), maps
Abstract NoteDue to its specific chemical and physical properties, water is essential for life on Earth. And it is assumed that this would be the case for extraterrestrial life as well. Therefore it is important to investigate where water can be found in the Universe. Although there are places that are completely dry, places where the last rainfall happened probably several 100 million years ago, surprisingly this substance is quite omnipresent. In the outer solar system the large satellites of Jupiter and Saturn are covered by a thick layer of ice that could be hiding a liquid ocean below. This of course
