This important and integral section emphasizes physical intuition by presenting important results that are used throughout the main text; it is here that most of the practical astrophysical applications become apparent. He was a research fellow at Cornell and then an Assistant Professor of Astronomy at Harvard University from You are currently using the site but have requested a page in the site.

RybickiAlan P. A Detailed Discussion 6.

Discussion begins with first principles, physically motivating and deriving all results rather than astrophysic presenting finished formulae. He is also a coauthor of Problem Book in Relativity and Gravitation His research includes work in general relativity, the astrophysics of black holes, radiation mechanisms, and stellar dynamics.


The Kompaneets Equation 7. Radiative Processes in Astrophysics also contains about 75 problems, with solutions, illustrating applications of the astrkphysics and methods for calculating results.

A Qualitative Discussion 6.

Radiative Processes in Astrophysics

Description Radiative Processes in Astrophysics: It covers such topics as radiative transfer theory, radiativw covariance and kinematics, bremsstrahlung radiation, synchrotron radiation, Compton scattering, some plasma effects, and radiative transitions in atoms. His research interests include stellar atmospheres, stellar dynamics and radiative transfer.

Rybicki received his B. He is presently at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. Lightman received his A.

Table of contents Asttrophysics 1 Fundamentals of Radiative Transfer 1. Radiative Processes in Astrophysics George B. However, a reasonably good physics background introductory quantum mechanics, intermediate electromagnetic theory, special relativity, and some statistical mechanics is required.

About the Author George B. Radiative Processes in Astrophysics.

The Compton Y Parameter 7. Would you like to change to the site? Added to Your Shopping Cart. This clear, straightforward, and fundamental introduction is designed to present-from a physicist’s point of view-radiation processes and their applications to astrophysical phenomena and space science. Much of this prerequisite material is provided astrophgsics brief reviews, making the book a self-contained reference for workers in the field as well as the ideal text for senior or first-year graduate students of astronomy, astrophysics, and related physics courses.
