## An introduction to modern astrophysics 2nd edition

## Classical mechanics | lecture 1

This well-known modern astrophysics textbook has been re-issued. The Second Edition, written for astronomy and physics majors, covers every major field of modern astrophysics in one detailed and engaging book, from the solar system and stellar astronomy to galactic and extragalactic astrophysics and cosmology.

Bradley W. Carroll holds a B.A. in Mathematics and a Secondary Teaching Credential from the University of California, Irvine, as well as an M.S. in Physics and a Ph.D. in Astrophysics from the University of Colorado, Boulder. He then accepted a postdoctoral position with Hugh Van Horn at the University of Rochester, and four years later, he accepted a position in Weber State University’s Physics Department, where he served as chair for ten years. After thirty years at Weber State University in Utah, he retired in 2015. He received the Lowe Innovative Teaching Award and was named a WSU Brady Presidential Distinguished Professor during this period. He is an American Astronomical Society emeritus member.

## An introduction to modern astrophysics 2nd edition

The second edition of An Introduction to Modern Astrophysics has been completely updated to reflect the drastic changes and developments in astrophysics over the last decade. The latest findings from related fields of astrophysics, as well as developments in our theoretical understanding of astrophysical phenomena, have been included in the Second Edition of this market-leading volume. An Introduction to Modern Astrophysics is also available in two derivative editions: Introduction to Modern Stellar Astrophysics, Second Edition, and Introduction to Modern Galactic Astrophysics and Cosmology, Second Edition, all designed for sophomore-level astrophysics for astronomy and physics majors. The main text is designed for stellar structure and evolution classes, while the shorter books cover the solar system, celestial and extragalactic physics, dynamics, evolution, and cosmology.

With straightforward, succinct descriptions and illustrations, this is a fantastic book that has been extremely useful for my University degree.

The first couple of pages when you open the front cover are of general Physics and Astrophysics constants, which is brilliant and simple to relate to when there are so many!

There are activities at the end of each chapter that can be completed to aid in continuous learning. There are a combination of mathematical, theoretical, and computer programming topics that can be found in a typical Physics Undergraduate course. Due to the book’s binding, one star has been deducted. I discovered that the book I got was wrongly assembled when I opened it upside-down from the front cover to the back page. I’m assuming this is a one-off and all other copies are right, but some people may find this bothersome and appreciate the heads up. It’s not a deal breaker for me, so I’m satisfied =) Overall, this is a book that I would recommend.
