By Roland Diehl,Dieter H. Hartmann,Nikos Prantzos

This e-book introduces the reader to the sphere of nuclear astrophysics, i.e. the purchase and examining of measurements on volatile isotopes in numerous components of the universe. The authors clarify the position of radioactivities in astrophysics, talk about particular assets of cosmic isotopes and during which distinct areas they are often saw. extra particularly, the authors tackle stars of other forms, stellar explosions which terminate stellar evolutions, and different explosions brought on via mass transfers and instabilities in binary stars. additionally they deal with nuclear reactions and shipping strategies in interstellar area, within the contexts of cosmic rays and of chemical evolution. a distinct bankruptcy is devoted to the sunlight approach which even offers fabric samples. The ebook additionally encompasses a description of key instruments which astrophysicists hire in these specific reports and a word list of keywords in astronomy with radioactivities.

Diese Gesamtdarstellung von Leonhard Eulers Arbeiten zur Himmelsmechanik zeigt, wie sich bei ihm mathematische Methoden und physikalische Prinzipien bei den Lösungen himmelsmechanischer Probleme entwickelten, sukzessive etablierten und sich durch vielseitige Anwendungen zu Standardverfahren entwickelten, die in der klassischen Astronomie und Physik noch heute gültig sind.

Die Entschlüsselung der Wirklichkeit: Ist das Universum ein Programm und Gott der Programmierer? (German Edition)

Naturgesetze sind nicht alles - sie allein erzeugen noch kein Universum. „Die Regeln allein setzen das Spiel nicht in Gang – es fehlt die ‚energetische‘ Ursache. Schließlich ist ein virtuelles Spiel nicht mit einem realen Spiel identisch“, schreibt Imre Koncsik. In der Natur bedeutet das, dass die Gleichungen, die die Naturgesetze abbilden, gelöst und ausgerechnet werden müssen.
