About this title


Starbursts or spectacular star-forming events are seen on large scales in some galaxies, often triggered by galactic interactions. An intriguing implication of starburst research is that active galactic nuclei (AGN) may not be powered by accreting black holes. Instead theories are presented where compact powerhouses of dust-enshrouded star formation lie at the core of AGN, with supernovae exploding roughly once per year within massive nuclear concentrations of gas. This book comprises a thorough review of the most important developments in galactic-scale star formation since the starburst revolution of the late 1980s.

Book Description:

The enormously powerful phenomenon of starbursts are examined in this book. Models presented include those that describe the spectacular star-forming events seen on large scales in some galaxies; and compact starburst cores that may power active galactic nuclei. This book collects articles from a timely international conference in Elba, Italy, in 1992; these comprise a thorough review of the most important developments in galactic-scale star formation since the starburst revolution began. This will introduce graduate students and keep experts apace with rapid developments.
