Astronomical Spectroscopy: An Introduction To The Atomic And Molecular Physics Of Astronomical Spectroscopy (Third Edition) Hardback
Part of the Advanced Textbooks in Physics series
The third edition of Astronomical Spectroscopy examines the physics necessary to understand and interpret astronomical spectra.
It offers a step-by-step guide to the atomic and molecular physics involved in providing astronomical spectra starting from the relatively simple hydrogen atom and working its way to the spectroscopy of small molecules.Based on UCL course material, this book uses actual astronomical spectra to illustrate the theoretical aspects of the book to give the reader a feel for such spectra as well as an awareness of what information can be retrieved from them.
It also provides comprehensive exercises, with answers given, to aid understanding.
