The Astrophysics of Emission-Line Stars

Many sorts of stars convey conspicuous emission traces of their optical spectra. those stars are widely often called emission line stars. Emission line stars are appealing to many folks as a result of their outstanding phenomena and their variability. The Astrophysics of Emission Line Stars bargains common details on emission line stars, ranging from a quick creation to stellar astrophysics, after which relocating towards a vast evaluation of emission line stars together with early and past due sort stars in addition to pre-main series stars.

U.S. Astronomy and Astrophysics: Managing an Integrated Program

Committee at the association and administration of analysis in Astronomy and Astrophysics, house experiences Board, Board on Physics and Astronomy, department on Engineering and actual Sciences, nationwide study Council

In its monetary 12 months 2002 finances precis rfile the Bush management expressed concern-based partly at the findings and conclusions of 2 nationwide study Council studies-about fresh tendencies within the federal investment of astronomy and astrophysics study. The President's funds blueprint prompt that now could be the time to handle those issues and directed the nationwide technological know-how starting place (NSF) and the nationwide Aeronautics and area management (NASA) to set up a blue ribbon panel to (1) examine the organizational effectiveness of the federal examine company in astronomy and astrophysics, (2) think about the professionals and cons of moving NSF's astronomy duties to NASA, and (3) recommend substitute suggestions for addressing concerns within the administration and association of astronomical and astrophysical examine. NASA and NSF requested the nationwide examine Council to hold out the fast evaluate asked by way of the President. This record, targeting the jobs of NSF and NASA, presents the result of that evaluation.

14 for a full description). Although few people familiar with the details of the HVC phenomenon accepted this idea, it generated a lot of work in trying to understand HVC metallicities, mapping HVC Hα emission and comparing the gas content of the Local Group with that of other galaxy groups (see Chaps. 2, 6, 8, 15). The original proposal by Blitz et al. (1999) seems untenable, but a variant was proposed by Braun & Burton (1999), who singled out the small HVCs as possible Local Group objects, calling these objects “Compact HVCs” (CHVCs).

2003), Sembach et al. (2003) and Savage et al. (2003) in a special issue of the ApJ Supplement (see summary in Ch. 11). The properties of the O vi indicate the presence of hot gas surrounding complex C (Fox et al. 2004) and the Magellanic Stream, suggesting a new kind of Galactic Corona, one much larger (out to at least 50 kpc) than envisioned by Spitzer. In many directions high-velocity O vi absorption without associated high-velocity H i is found, which might represent hot gas in the Local Group.

On the other hand, toward Mrk 876 Murphy et al. 14 solar implied for this HVC by other sightlines. Since N (H i)∼2×1019 cm−2 , N (H) must be >8×1019 cm−2 . Although the model provided by Maloney (1993) predicts N (H)=7×1019 cm−2 for this N (H i), the implied column densities are not inconsistent with the idea that lower values of N (H i) imply higher H+ /H i ratios. A problem, however, is that no Hα emission associated with complex C is observed in the direction of Mrk 876, which is only possible if the H+ is thinly spread over a many kpc (>5) thick layer.
