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.
Astrophysical measurements away from the 1 AU orbit of Earth can enable several astrophysical science cases that are challenging or impossible to perform from Earthbound platforms. In this White Paper, we describe the science motivations and advocate for flight opportunities to make the...
In order to understand the possible mechanisms of recurrent jet activity in radio galaxies and quasars, which are still unclear, we have identified such sources with a large range of linear sizes (220–917 kpc), and hence timescales of episodic activity. Here we present high-sensiti...
Cosmic structure formation is thought to occur as a bottom-up scenario, i.e. the lightest objects would have formed first. It has been suggested that the earliest structures to form could have been primordial planets. Here we propose the possibility of formation of primordial plane...
The hemispheric asymmetry of sunspot activity observed possesses a regular component varying on a timescale of several solar cycles whose origin and properties are currently debated. Aims This paper addresses the question of whether the long-term hemispheric asymmetry can result from r...
