Accretion Power in Astrophysics - 3rd edition

Accretion Power in Astrophysics (ISBN10: 0521620538; ISBN13: 9780521620536)
ISBN13: 978-0521620536
ISBN10: 0521620538

This edition has also been released as:
ISBN13: 978-0521629577
ISBN10: 0521629578

Summary: This newly expanded and thoroughly updated third edition examines accretion as a source of energy in both binary star systems containing compact objects, and in active galactic nuclei. Assuming a basic knowledge of physics, the authors describe the physical processes at work in accretion discs and other accretion flows. New material includes a detailed treatment of disc instabilities, irradiated discs, disc warping, and general accretion flows. The treatment is suitable for advanced
undergraduates, graduate students and researchers.
