Om boka

This book presents a collection of focused review papers on the advances in topics in modern astronomy, astrophysics, cosmology and planetary science. The chapters are written by expert members of an EU-funded ERASMUS+ program of strategic partnership between several European institutes.
The 13 reviews comprise the topics:

Space debris, optical measurements
Meteors, light from comets and asteroids
Extrasolar enigmas: from disintegrating exoplanets to exo-asteroids
Physical conditions and chemical abundances in photoionized nebulae from optical spectra
Observational Constraints on the Common Envelope Phase
A modern guide to quantitative spectroscopy of massive OB stars
Explosion mechanisms of core-collapse supernovae and their observational signatures
Low-mass and substellar eclipsing binaries in stellar clusters
Globular cluster systems and Galaxy Formation
Hot atmospheres of galaxies, groups, and clusters of galaxies
The establishment of the Standard Cosmological Model through observations
Exploiting solar visible-range observations by inversion techniques: from flows in the solar subsurface to a flaring atmosphere
Starburst galaxies


The book is intended for the general astronomical community as well as for advanced students who could use it as a guideline, inspiration and overview for their future careers in astronomy.

Om forfatteren

Petr Kabath obtained a degree in physics from Freie Universitat Berlin in 2006. Later, he started to work on his Phd thesis on exoplanets at Deutsches Zentrum fur Luft- und Raumfahrt in Berlin in group of Prof. Heike Rauer. His Phd thesis was successfully defended in 2009 and he joined European Southern Observatory as an ESO Paranal Fellow. In 2013, he changed to a staff astronomer position at Paranal Observatory and in 2015 he obtained a Purkyne Fellowship from Czech Academy of Sciences awarded for returning young scientists. Petr Kabath works currently at the Astronomical Instiute of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Ondrejov, Czech Republic where he is leading a new exoplanet research group. Petr Kabath published more than 36 refereed papers and numerous proceedings and other non-refereed publications. He also devoted his time to career enhancement of young astronomers and he is also regularly publishing articles about astronomy for general public.



David Jones received his Phd in 2011, from the University of Manchester's Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics, for his work on the morphologies and kinematics of planetary nebulae. He has also worked at the European Southern Observatory's Paranal Observatory, the Universidad de Atacama and the Isaac Newton Group of Telescopes, and is currently based at the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias on the Spanish island of La Palma. He is the author of more than 40 refereed papers covering topics ranging from near-Earth asteroids to supernovae type Ia. Since 2018, he is a member of the organizing committee of the Internat
