The Physics of Interstellar Dust (Series in Astronomy and Astrophysics)

All of the material is presented clearly and concisely.
- Tom Hartquist in A&G

It is by far the most comprehensive, detailed, and in depth work ever published on this subject. The book derives all of the relevant physics for interstellar dust from first principles. It includes all of the necessary physics of dust grains, including solid state physics, radiative transport, optical properties, thermodynamics, statistical mechanics and quantum mechanics. Its treatment of all of these subjects is detailed and precise. It then uses all of this basic physics in the specific case of dust grains in the interstellar medium. It represents the most complete volume on this subject and as such is a tremendous achievement. I am sure it will remain the standard text on this subject for many years to come.
- Professor D. Ward-Thompson, Cardiff University, Wales

It is the best book on cosmic dust...
- Professor A.V. Tutukov

The Physics of Interstellar Dust can be a valuable tool to anyone interested in the subject . . . In some ways, I view this book as containing almost all of physics applied to interstellar dust . . . This is a substantial book aimed at the specialized study of interstellar dust. I recommend that you definitely consider using this text if you have to teach a course about interstellar dust or want to do an independent study on the topic.
- Edward L Wright, University of California in Physics Today, January 2004

This is an encyclopaedic work, which will, I expect, prove a valuable reference for students and researchers in the field.
- Professor B Draine

Interstellar dust clouds catalyze simple chemical reactions, absorb, scatter, polarize, and re-radiate starlight, and form the building blocks for planet and stellar formation. Understanding this interstellar medium is then of primary importance in many areas of astronomy & astrophysics. This book provides a theoretical description of the fundamental physics of interstellar material, including a description of its composition, morphology, grain size and distribution, dynamics, dielectric permeability, radiation scattering and spectral features. Other chapters describe the surface chemistry, and role of dust in stellar formation, including the spectral behavior of protostars and dust around early stars.

Imagining the Tenth Dimension: A New Way of Thinking About Time and Space
Imagining the Tenth Dimension: A New Way of Thinking About Time and Space

Reality, today's physicists tell us, is created by the vibrations of exquisitely tiny superstrings in ten spatial dimensions. Ten dimensions? Most of us have barely gotten used to the idea that there are four.

Using simple geometry and an easygoing writing style, author Rob Bryanton starts with the lower dimensions that we are...
