In contrast to most of the usual compendia it carefully explains the physical assumptions entering the formulae. They together contain over formulae and references, more than doubling the number found in previous versions.

Review quote From the reviews “This latest up-date remains an essential source book for every student and every researcher in astrophysics, as well as in physics.
Where possible the formulae have been developed from basic principles. Solar System Astrophysics Eugene F. Visit our Beautiful Books page and find lovely books for kids, photography lovers and more. Interferometry and Synthesis in Radio Astronomy A. Product details Format Paperback pages Dimensions x x The bibliography contains more than 1, citations of original papers. Radiation, Gas Processes and High Energy Astrophysics includes electromagnetic radiation, scattering and scintillation, atomic and molecular spectra with the various broadening and shifting effects, statistical mechanics and thermodynamics of gases, hydrodynamics and magnetohydrodynamics, and particle physics as far as it is applicable to astrophysics, including nucleosynthesis of the elements and energetic particles or radiation in the cosmos.
The material in Volume I has been updated with references to important review articles and books, and new formulae, data and references have been added for contemporary topics such as accretion, brown dwarfs, cosmic rays, spallation reactions, equations of state for degenerate gases, gamma ray bursts, gamma ray lines, interstellar gas and dust, molecular clouds, molecular masers, origin and abundance of the elements, particle acceleration by shock waves, star formation, supernovae explosions and remnants, supernova SN A, and thermonuclear reactions.
The new edition of Astrophysical Formulae has been divided into two books – Volume I.
