About this book

The direct detection and analysis of exoplanets, planets orbiting distant stars, is considered to be the next great frontier in astrophysics. This volume reports the communications of the first IAU conference devoted to the direct imaging of exoplanets. It focuses both on the presentation of science goals for the direct detection of terrestrial and giant exoplanets, and on the analysis of instrumentation and important techniques to achieve that goal. IAU C200 describes the latest theoretical developments in understanding the formation and evolution of planetary systems and presents state of the art instrumental concepts and data analysis methods. It also discusses trends in future ground-based and space instrumentation, including the current major international projects. This volume provides researchers and graduate students with a wealth of information on the current state of exoplanetary astrophysics and its future prospects.

Contents

Preface; 1. Science: theoretical observational aspects of exoplanetary systems; 2. Instrumentation and techniques: A. Classical and nulling interferometry of exoplanets; B. Coronography, adaptive optics and related instrumentations; C. Data processing for high dynamic imagery; Index.

Media reviews
'The study of exoplanets is, without doubt, one of the hottest topics in modern day astronomy ! the 200th IAU Colloquium have delivered their volume, in conjunction with the Cambridge University Press, only nine months after the conference. This is certainly an impressive effort and gives the contents of the book an immediacy often lacking in many similar volumes ! the book is well produced, with a nice uniformity of style and clear figures ! I would definitely recommend that anyone who wants a thorough update on extra-solar planetary imaging obtain a copy.' The Observatory
