Welcome to the Digital Repository of Indian Institute of Astrophysics
This digital repository of Indian Institute of Astrophysics (IIAP), Bangalore, India is developed to capture, organize disseminate and preserve the research publications of IIAP. It also includes the in-house technical reports and annual reports in addition to various other grey literatures created within the institute.You can search, browse and access full text of these publications from the repository.
This Repository also hosts papers published in Bulletin of the Astronomical Society of India, Volumes 1 to 33, 1973 to 2005. The contents of Vol. 34, 2006 to Current can be accessed from the BASI HOMEPAGE
Archival Collection in Open Access
Indian Institute of Astrophysics traces its origin back to 1786, and the Institute has naturally inherited the library and records of the Madras and Kodaikanal Observatories. This collection of archival records has grown over the years in various formats such as manuscripts, photographs, maps, films, awards, hand-drawn sketches, pictures and instruments.
Our Galaxy, also called the Milky Way, is a spiral galaxy consisting of three major distinct components: bulge, disc and halo. They differ from each other in their structural as well as kinematical and chemical properties. Bulge contains both the young and old sta...
The Segmented Mirror Telescopes (SMT) are built using small hexagonal mirror segments placed side by side to form a monolithic primary mirror of very large size. The effective figure of such a segmented primary mirror is maintained against external disturbances introduced by ...
The short transition phase between asymptotic giant branch stars (AGB; when circumstellar envelopes rich in small organic molecules are efficiently created) and planetary nebulae (PNe) represents a most active phase of molecular synthesis. Different complex organic molecules - e.g., polycyclic ar...
The interplay of the relativistic and correlation effects in the permanent electric dipole moments of the X2Σ+ electronic ground states of the alkaline-earth-metal monofluorides (BeF, MgF, CaF, SrF, and BaF) has been studied using a relativistic coupled cluster method. The calculations were&...
