Table of contents Chapter 1 Fundamentals of Radiative Transfer 1.

Astronomy Radiative Processes

However, a reasonably good physics background introductory quantum mechanics, intermediate electromagnetic theory, special relativity, and some statistical mechanics is required. Much of this prerequisite material is provided by 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 astorphysics, astrophysics, and related physics courses.

It covers such topics as radiative transfer theory, relativistic covariance and kinematics, bremsstrahlung radiation, synchrotron radiation, Compton scattering, some plasma effects, and radiative transitions in atoms.


He is presently at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

Lightman received his A. About the Author George B. His research interests include stellar atmospheres, stellar dynamics and radiative transfer.

Radiative Processes in Astrophysics – AstroBaki

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. He is also a coauthor of Problem Book in Relativity and Gravitation Description Radiative Processes in Astrophysics: The Kompaneets Equation 7.

Rybicki received his B. Added to Your Shopping Cart.

procewses Radiative Processes in Astrophysics also contains about 75 problems, with solutions, illustrating applications of the material and methods for calculating results.

The Compton Y Parameter 7. 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. Discussion begins with first principles, physically motivating and deriving all results rather than merely presenting finished formulae.
