Description

Many astrophysical bodies produce winds, jets or explosions, which blow spectacular bubbles. From a nonmathematical, unifying perspective, based on the understanding of bubbles, the authors address many of the most exciting topics in modern astrophysics including supernovae, the production of structure in the Early Universe, the environments of supermassive black holes and gamma-ray bursts.show more

Review quote

"Three astrophysicists from Leeds University diverge from many studies by focusing not on a particular source of radiation, but on a set of phenomena produced by a wide range of them. The underlying pictures required for such a study, they say, are simple, limited in type, and highly adaptable, and thus suitable to introduce non-specialists to a large swathe of astrophysics from a unifying perspective: star- forming regions, supernova, the creation of structure in the early universe, and other hot topics."--SciTech Book Newsshow more
