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.
HD 179821 is classified as G5 Ia star. From the IRAS colors and spectral energy distributions it was classified as a post-AGB star. But some studies classify it as a massive (30 to 19 M⊙) post-red supergiant evolving to become a Type II supernova. Its mass and e...
A complete census of the blue horizontal branch (BHB) and blue straggler star (BSS) population within a 10′ radius from the centre of the globular cluster NGC 288 is presented, based on images from the Ultraviolet Imaging Telescope (UVIT). The UV and UV−optical colour–magnitude...
The physical processes related to the effect of bars in the quenching of star formation in the region between the nuclear/central sub-kiloparsec region and the ends of the bar (bar region) of spiral galaxies is not fully understood. It is hypothesized that the bar can...
The standard model for the formation of structure assumes that there existed small fluctuations in the early universe that grew due to gravitational instability. The origins of these fluctuations are as yet unclear. In this work we propose the role of dark matter in providing&...
In this paper, we report the discovery of two new super Li-rich K giants: HD 24960 and TYC 1751-1713-1. Based on high-resolution (R ≈ 60 000) spectroscopy, we have derived Li abundance of A(Li) ≈ 4.0 dex for both stars. Other elemental abundances are normal of typical...
