Galaxy collisions are the key process in building galaxies, triggering the formation of stars and the build-up of heavy elements that allow the formation of planets and solar systems. This book presents the revolutionary research advances achieved in the last decade and lucidly explains the underlying dynamical processes.
From the reviews: Galaxy Collisions is big book, not physically but conceptually. Colour images, some appropriately from the Hubble Space Telescope, and diagrams support the text where needed throughout. it is refreshing to read a book that stays strictly on topic. Where an explanation is required to ensure understanding it is given quickly then attention is swiftly refocused back to the main subject. reader who has a good understanding of the key concepts of Astronomy will get a lot from this book . (Paul Rumsby, Best Astronomy Books, August, 2011)
