About this Item

One of the world's most distinguished astrophysicists presents a comprehensive theoretical treatment of the dynamic evolution of globular clusters. These clusters, of which there are typically 100 per galaxy, each containing some 100,000 stars, evolve slowly and their cores gradually collapse as a result of gravitational encounters between pairs of stars. Lyman Spitzer's research in this field established the framework for decades of inverstigation. Now he summarizes in a unified, systematic way this branch of theoretical astrophysics with its still challenging problems. 180 pages with an index and list of symbols. ~~After words: our books aren't used; our prices are just low.~~.
