|von Frank H. Shu|
From Book News, Inc. Published by University Science Books, 20 Edgehill Road, Mill Valley, CA 94941. Although it is the second of a two-volume set intended for students of astronomy who need background in physics and mathematics, this volume is self-contained. Coverage includes the interactions of matter and radiation, and electromagnetic fields of macroscopic scale in both the strongly collisional and collisionless regimes.

Synopsis This two-volume text is for new graduates on astronomy courses who need to get to grips with the physics involved in the subject. Four problem sets, averaging three problems per set, accompany each volume. The problems expand on the material covered in the texts and represent the level of calculational skill needed to write scientific papers in contemporary astrophysics. Volume I. "Radiation" deals with the emission, absorption, and scattering of radiation by matter, radiative transfer,...
