Series: Springer Lecture Notes in Physics Series Volume: 861
387 pages, 60 colour & 78 b/w illustrations
Based on the lecture notes of a school titled "Tides in Astronomy and Astrophysics" that brought together students and researchers, Tides in Astronomy and Astrophysics focuses on the fundamental theories of tides at different scales of the universe-from tiny satellites to whole galaxies-and on the most recent developments. It also attempts to place the study of tides in a historical perspective. Starting with a general tutorial on tides, the theme of tides is approached in 9 chapters from many directions. They allow non-experts to pick up a physical intuition and a sense of orders of magnitude in the theory of tides. These carefully prepared lecture notes by leaders in the field include many illustrative figures and drawings. Some even offer a variety of simple back-of the-envelope problems.
