TitleThe Dynamics of Small Solar System Bodies
Author(s)Wood, Jeremy
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2019.
DescriptionXI, 124 p. 49 illus., 15 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis SpringerBrief summarizes the latest relevant research and discoveries that have been made in the area of ringed small bodies and small body taxonomy, including those that lay the groundwork for future discoveries. Before 2013, ringed small bodies were only theoretical. Thus, there are very limited publications available on this relatively new subfield of astronomy. With the introduction of the GAIA catalogue, star positions are now known better than ever before. Since rings are discovered through the use of starlight occultation, we could very well be looking at an explosion of discoveries of ringed small bodies in the near future. Each chapter is accompanied by exercises, and an end-of-book answer key is provided. As such, this brief will benefit students and researchers alike who wish to have a single document and quick access to the latest information on ringed small bodies and small body taxonomy

TitleExploring the Ocean Worlds of Our Solar System
Author(s)Henin, Bernard
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2018.
DescriptionXXIV, 303 p. 45 illus., 34 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteIn the last 25 years, planetary science experienced a revolution, as vast oceans of liquid water have been discovered within the heart of the icy moons of our Solar System. These subsurface oceans lie hidden under thick layers of ice. We call them ocean worlds. Some of these icy moons, such as Ganymede, may hold two to three times more liquid water than all the water present on Earth, while others, such as Enceladus and Europa, are thought by astrobiologists to be our best hope of finding extraterrestrial life. In this book, we will explore and compare a variety of Solar System ocean worlds, meeting in the process 22 of the most intriguing objects, from the giant asteroid Ceres to the enigmatic, distant Sedna. In doing so, we will also encounter the multiple spacecraft that brought back most of what we know of these worlds (Pioneers, Voyagers, Cassini-Huygens, etc.), as well as the latest scientific research on this new topic. We will also entertain the possibility of life on each of these ocean worlds by assessing their habitability, as ultimately, these ocean worlds might hold the key to answering the fundamental questions in life: How did life appear? Where do we come from? Is there life out there?

TitleAstroparticle Physics
Author(s)Grupen, Claus
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2020.
DescriptionXVII, 609 p. 343 illus., 207 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis second, revised and thoroughly updated edition of the successful textbook by Claus Grupen describes the branch of astrophysics known as astroparticle physics. Using experimental methods known from cosmic ray and particle physics, astroparticle physics investigates processes of highest energies taking place in the universe. The new edition reports on progress made by recent discoveries in gravitational wave astronomy and neutrino astronomy (including all details needed to understand recent discoveries in multi-messenger experiments) and also astrobiology. After a historical introduction to the basics of elementary particles the author describes their interactions and the relevant detection techniques. The main body of the book concerns cosmic rays as well as particle processes in astrophysics and cosmology including the physics of the early universe. The book provides an orientation in the field of astroparticle physics that many beginners might be looking for. It also presents new sections exploring the interface between particle physics and cosmic radiation and illustrates the impact of particle physics discoveries to astroparticle physics. The physics is presented using little mathematics, and the results are illustrated by many diagrams and illustrative scientific cartoons which ease the reading of the book. Closing the gap between expert and popular level, the book is highly recommended for undergraduate students in physics or astronomy. It also includes an extensive glossary and a detailed index

TitleIce Worlds of the Solar System : Their Tortured Landscapes and Biological Potential
Author(s)Carroll, Michael
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2019.
DescriptionXIII, 166 p. 90 illus., 68 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteAlthough there is a chance that certain planets may be habitable for life, the moons of planets might have even more to offer. The ice moons of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune have taught us important lessons about new volcanic forms???cryovolcanism???and the bizarre landscapes sculpted by those erupting geysers. Glaciers, ice mountains, and vast canyons mold the faces of these worlds of ice and thunder. Yet, many ice moons and dwarf planets, including Ceres and Pluto, are in fact sea worlds, hiding deep oceans beneath their ice crusts. This book explores the frozen worlds beyond Mars, delving into the interior forces of migrating ice diapirs, seafloor volcanism and tidal friction, which help form the landscapes found above and biologically friendly environs buried below. It covers the latest research in the field and includes interviews with today???s foremost authorities, including astrobiologists Chris McKay (NASA Ames), Ralph Lorenz (Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory) and Karl Mitchell (Jet Propulsion Laboratory). Original art by the author enhances the concepts explored in the text, recreating some of the most remarkable landscapes on icy planets and moons

TitleExploring the Architecture of Transiting Exoplanetary Systems with High-Precision Photometry
Author(s)Masuda, Kento
PublicationSingapore, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Singapore, 2018.
DescriptionXIV, 160 p. 52 illus., 36 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThis thesis develops and establishes several methods to determine the detailed geometric architecture of transiting exoplanetary systems (planets orbiting around, and periodically passing in front of, stars other than the sun) using high-precision photometric data collected by the Kepler space telescope. It highlights the measurement of stellar obliquity ??? the tilt of the stellar equator with respect to the planetary orbital plane(s) ??? and presents methods for more precise obliquity measurements in individual systems of particular interest, as well as for measurements in systems that have been out of reach of previous methods. Such information is useful for investigating the dynamical evolution of the planetary orbit, which is the key to understanding the diverse architecture of exoplanetary systems. The thesis also demonstrates a wide range of unique applications of high-precision photometric data, which expand the capability of future space-based photometry

TitleThe Three-Body Problem and the Equations of Dynamics : Poincar?????s Foundational Work on Dynamical Systems Theory
Author(s)Poincar??, Henri
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2017.
DescriptionXXII, 248 p. 9 illus : online resource
Abstract NoteHere is an accurate and readable translation of a seminal article by Henri Poincar?? that is a classic in the study of dynamical systems popularly called chaos theory. In an effort to understand the stability of orbits in the solar system, Poincar?? applied a Hamiltonian formulation to the equations of planetary motion and studied these differential equations in the limited case of three bodies to arrive at properties of the equations??? solutions, such as orbital resonances and horseshoe orbits.?? Poincar?? wrote for professional mathematicians and astronomers interested in celestial mechanics and differential equations. Contemporary historians of math or science and researchers in dynamical systems and planetary motion with an interest in the origin or history of their field will find his work fascinating.??

TitleMillimeter Astronomy : Saas-Fee Advanced Course 38. Swiss Society for Astrophysics and Astronomy
Author(s)Wilson, T. L;Guilloteau, St??phane;Dessauges-Zavadsky, Miroslava;Pfenniger, Daniel
PublicationBerlin, Heidelberg, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2018.
DescriptionVII, 183 p. 54 illus., 10 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThe millimeter and sub-millimeter wavebands are unique in astronomy in containing several thousands of spectral lines of molecules as well as the thermal continuum spectrum of cold dust. They are the only bands in the electromagnetic spectrum in which we can detect the molecular gas reservoir for star formation and cold dust far away in high-redshift galaxies, and nearby in low-temperature cocoons of protostars and protoplanets. This book is based on and extensively updated from the lectures given during the Saas-Fee Advanced Course 38 on millimeter astronomy. It presents both the observing techniques and the scientific perspectives of observations at millimeter wavelengths, here in particular the star and planet formation. The chapters by Thomas L. Wilson and St??phane Guilloteau have been edited by Miroslava Dessauges-Zavadsky and Daniel Pfenniger. The book is part of the series of Saas-Fee Advanced Courses published since 1971. The targeted audience are graduate PhD and advanced undergraduate students, but the book also serves as reference for post-doctoral researchers or newcomers to the field

TitleLaboratory experiments in physics for modern astronomy: With comprehensive development of the physical principles
Author(s)Leslie M. Golden
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2013.
Descriptionxxix, 570p.
Abstract NoteThis book presents experiments which will teach physics relevant to astronomy. The astronomer, as instructor, frequently faces this need when his college or university has no astronomy department and any astronomy course is taught in the physics department. The physicist, as instructor, will find this intellectually appealing when faced with teaching an introductory astronomy course. From these experiments, the student will acquire important analytical tools, learn physics appropriate to astronomy, and experience instrument calibration and the direct gathering and analysis of data. Experiments that can be performed in one laboratory session as well as semester-long observation projects are included.
