  • Cowsik, R (editor) (World Scientific Publishing, 1995)
    This international conference focussed on several exciting frontier areas of particle physics at energy scales not realizable in terrestrial accelerators and their significance in the fields of astrophysics and cosmology. ...
  • Priest, E. R (editor); Krishan, V (editor) (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1990)
    Much of the excitement in modern Solar Physics has come from the realisation that the Sun is a plasma and that this plasma is interacting with the magnetic field in a wide variety of subtle ways. As well as being of great ...
  • Sivaram, C; Arun, K (Ane Books, 2009)
    The year 2009 is being recognised as the international year of astronomy (IYA) to mark the four hundredth anniversary of the historical occasion in the year 1609 when Galileo Galilei used the then newly invented telescope ...
  • Mallik, D. C. V; Chatterjee, S (Universities Press (India), 2012)
    The first four decades of the 20th century were glorious years for science, especially physics. Our view of the physical world changed forever with the emergence of quantum mechanics and Einstein’s formulation of the theory ...
  • Nagendra, K. N (editor); Bagnulo, S (editor); Centeno, R (editor); Martinez Gonzalez, M. J (editor) (Cambridge University Press, 2015)
    The advances in solar, planetary, and extrasolar science employing polarimetric tools are far-reaching, and the pace of discovery is accelerating rapidly. In the last three decades, the emphasis of solar polarimetry has ...
  • Sivaram, C; Sastry, A (Universities Press (India), 2004)
    Astrobiology is the science that seeks to unravel the mysteries of the orign of life and the conditions that would support the birth and evolution of life forms. It involves several disciplines of science which are essential ...

  • Saha, S. K (Springer, 2011)
    Over the years long baseline optical interferometry has slowly gained in importance and today it is a powerful tool. This timely book sets out to highlight the basic principles of long baseline optical interferometry. The ...
  • Satya Narayanan, A (Springer, 2013)
    Astrophysicists and others studying the Sun will find this expansive coverage of what we know about waves and oscillations in our nearest star an informative introduction to a hot contemporary topic. After a section ...
  • Krishan, V (Cambridge University Press, 2016)
    DescriptionContentsResourcesCoursesAbout the Authors Plasma is one of the four fundamental states of matter; the other three being solid, liquid and gas. Several components, such as molecular clouds, diffuse interstellar ...
  • Venkatakrishan, P (World Scientific Publishing, 218)
    This book is an attempt to demystify the activities of a celestial object such as the Sun appealing to basic physics already available to high school students. Building on simple logic, the contents begin with measurements ...
  • Saha, S. K (World Scientific Publishing, 2007)
    This book deals with the fundamentals of wave optics, polarization, interference, diffraction, imaging, and the origin, properties, and optical effects of turbulence in the Earth's atmosphere. Techniques developed during ...

  • de Sabbata, V; Sivaram, C (World Scientific Publishing, 1994)
    This book gives an exposition of both the old and new results of spin and torsion effects on gravitational interactions with implications for particle physics, cosmology etc. Physical aspects are stressed and measurable ...
  • Krishan, V (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1999)
    Life was simple when the dynamic, the spectral and the resolving powers of our instruments were small. One observed whole objects - planets, stars, sunspots, galaxies, often in rainbow colours. Then the revolution occurred: ...
  • Peraiah, A (Cambridge University Press, 2002)
    Astrophysicists have developed several very different methodologies for solving the radiative transfer equation. An Introduction to Radiative Transfer applies these techniques to stellar atmospheres, planetary nebulae, ...
  • Hasan, S. S (editor); Gangadhara, R. T (editor); Krishan, V (editor) (Springer, 2009)
    It is well established and appreciated by now that more than 99% of the baryonic matter in the universe is in the plasma state. Most astrophysical systems could be approximated as conducting fluids in a gravitational field. ...
  • Gopalswamy, N (editor); Hasan, S. S (editor); Ambastha, A (editor) (Springer-Verlag, 2010)
