TitleAstrometry for astrophysics: Methods, Models, and Applications
Author(s)William F. Van Altena (ed.)
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2013.
Descriptionxviii, 411p.
Abstract NoteThe field of astrometry, the precise measurement of the positions, distances and motions of astronomical objects, has been revolutionized in recent years. As we enter the high-precision era, it will play an increasingly important role in all areas of astronomy, astrophysics and cosmology. This edited text starts by looking at the opportunities and challenges facing astrometry in the twenty-first century, from space and ground. The new formalisms of relativity required to take advantage of micro-arcsecond astrometry are then discussed, before the reader is guided through the basic methods required to transform our observations from detected photons to the celestial sphere. The final section of the text shows how a variety of astronomical problems can be solved using astrometric methods. Bringing together work from a broad range of experts in the field, this is the most complete textbook on observational astrometry and is ideal for graduate students and researchers alike.

TitleUsing SI units in astronomy
Author(s)Richard Dodd
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2012.
Descriptionxiii, 230p.
Abstract NoteA multitude of measurement units exist within astronomy, some of which are unique to the subject, causing discrepancies that are particularly apparent when astronomers collaborate with researchers from other disciplines in science and engineering. The International System of Units (SI) is based on seven fundamental units from which other units may be derived, but many astronomers are reluctant to drop their old and familiar systems. This handbook demonstrates the ease with which transformations from old units to SI units may be made. Using worked examples, the author argues that astronomers would benefit greatly if the reporting of astronomical research and the sharing of data were standardized to SI units. Each chapter reviews a different SI base unit, clarifying the connection between these units and those currently favoured by astronomers. This is an essential reference for all researchers in astronomy and astrophysics, and will also appeal to advanced students.

TitleAstronomical applications of astrometry: Ten years of Exploitation of the Hipparcos Satellite Data
Author(s)Michale Perryman
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2009.
Descriptionxxi, 670p.
Abstract Notehe Hipparcos satellite, developed and launched by the European Space Agency (ESA) in 1989, was the first space mission dedicated to astrometry – the accurate measurement of positions, distances, and proper motions of stars. Amongst the key achievements of its measurements are refining the cosmic distance scale, characterising the large-scale kinematic motions in the Solar neighbourhood, providing precise luminosities for stellar modelling, and confirming Einstein's prediction of the effect of gravity on starlight. This authoritative account of the Hipparcos contributions over the last decade is an outstanding reference for astronomers, astrophysicists and cosmologists. It reviews the applications of the data in different areas, describing the subject and the state-of-the-art before Hipparcos, and summarising all major contributions to the topic made by Hipparcos. It contains a detailed overview of the Hipparcos and Tycho Catalogues, their annexes and their updates. Each chapter ends with comprehensive references to relevant literature.

TitleFundamentals of astrometry
Author(s)Jean Kovalevsky;P. Kenneth Seidelmann
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2004.
Descriptionxvi, 404p.
Contents NoteThe book is designed to provide the fundamentals for the new astrometry at the milli- and microarcsecond accuracies. The intent is to start from basic principles, without approximations, and develop the fundamentals of astrometry at mocroarcsecond accuracies. It is based on the general theory of relativity and the concepts introduced by the International Astronomical Union (IAU) in the past decade.
