Por: Mo, HoujunColaborador(es): Van den Bosch, Frank, 1969- | White, S. (Simon D. M.)Tipo de material: TextoTextoDetalles de publicación: Cambridge ; New York : Cambridge University Press, 2010Descripción: xix, 820 páginas : ilustraciones ; 26 cmISBN: 9780521857932; 0521857937Tema(s): Formación de galaxias | Cosmología | Halo galáctico | Galaxias activas | Materia intergaláctica | Colapso gravitacionalOtra clasificación: 98.62.Ai Recursos en línea: Imagen de cubierta | Información bibliográfica del autor princial | Descripción del editor | Tabla de contenidos
Contenidos:
1. Introduction -- 2. Observational facts -- 3. Cosmological background -- 4. Cosmological perturbations -- 5. Gravitational collapse and collisionless dynamics -- 6. Probing the cosmic density field -- 7. Formation and structure of dark matter halos -- 8. Formation and evolution of gaseous halos -- 9. Star formation in galaxies -- 10. Stellar populations and chemical evolution; 11. Disk galaxies -- 12. Galaxy interactions and transformations -- 13. Elliptical galaxies -- 14. Active galaxies -- 15. Statistical properties of the galaxy population -- 16. The intergalactic medium -- Appendices -- References -- Index.
Resumen: "The rapidly expanding field of galaxy formation lies at the interface between astronomy, particle physics, and cosmology. Covering diverse topics from these disciplines, all of which are needed to understand how galaxies form and evolve, this book is ideal for researchers entering the field. Individual chapters explore the evolution of the Universe as a whole and its particle and radiation content; linear and nonlinear growth of cosmic structure; processes affecting the gaseous and dark matter components of galaxies and their stellar populations; the formation of spiral and elliptical galaxies; central supermassive black holes and the activity associated with them; galaxy interactions; and the intergalactic medium. Emphasizing both observational and theoretical aspects, this book provides a coherent introduction for astronomers, cosmologists, and astroparticle physicists to the broad range of science underlying the formation and evolution of galaxies"--Provided by publisher.Resumen: "This book is concerned with the physical processes related to the formation and evolution of galaxies. Simply put, a galaxy is a dynamically bound system that consists of many stars"--Provided by publisher.
