Waves in Astrophysics (Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, Vol 773)
From Book News, Inc. Forty-five astronomers, physicists, and mathematicians contributed to this collection of papers focusing on waves in astrophysics presented at the Tenth Florida Workshop in Nonlinear Astronomy, Gainesville, Florida, September 1994. Some of the specific subjects discussed include: stellar pulsation, plasmas, galactic dynamics, accretion disks, gravitational waves, Alfven waves, and order-chaos. Lacks an index.

Synopsis This volume, the proceedings of the Tenth Florida Workshop on Nonlinear Astronomy, brings together the work of a diverse group of astronomers, physicists and mathematicians to discuss the following topics: chaos in observational data of variable stars; unstable long wavelength MHD waves; the interstellar medium; Alfven waves and interstellar turbulence; sinuous oscillations and steady warps of polytropic disks; waves in shock-bounded slabs; normal modes and continuous spectra; vorticity and...
