Eddington, A. S.:

Stars and Atoms - Paperback

ISBN: 9781406771459

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: Ellott Press], This book contains A. S. Eddington's 1926 treatise, "Stars and Atoms". Originally an evening discourse given at the meeting of the British Association in Oxford in August 1926, "Stars and Atoms" was expanded and republished here in the form of three accessible and interesting lectures. This insightful collection of essays is recommended for those with an interest in the history and development of astronomy, and would make for a great addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "The Interior of a Star", "Temperature of the Interior", "Ionization of Atoms", "Radiation, Pressure and Mass", "The Interior of a Star", "Opacity of Stellar Matter", "Some Recent Investigations", "The Story of Algol", "The Story of the Companion of Sirius", "Spectral Series", "The Sun's Chromosphere", etcetera. Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington (1882 - 1944) was an esteemed English mathematician, physicist, and astronomer during the early twentieth century. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author. Versandfertig in 3-5 Tagen, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot

Stars and Atoms Stars and Atoms A. S. EDDINGTON M. A., D. Sc., LL. D., F. R S., Flumian Professor of Astronomy in the University of Cambridge OXFORD AT THE CLARENDON PRESS 1927 PREFACE STARS and Atoms was the title of an Evening Dis course given at the meeting of the British Association in Oxford in August 1926. In adapting it for publication the restrictions of a time limit are removed and accord ingly it appears in this book as three lectures. Earlier in the year I had given a course of three lectures in Kings College, London, on the same topics these have been combined with the Oxford lecture and are the origin of most of the additions. A full account of the subject, including the mathe matical theory, is given in my larger book, The Internal Constitution of the Stars Camb. Univ. Press, 1926. Here I only aim at exposition of some of the leading ideas and results. The advance in our knowledge of atoms and radiation has led to many interesting developments in astronomy and reciprocally the study of matter in the extreme con ditions prevailing in stars and nebulae has played no mean part in the progress of atomic physics. This is the general theme of the lectures. Selection has been made of the advances and discoveries which admit of comparatively elementary exposition but it is often necessary to detnand from the reader a concentration of thought which, it is hoped, will be repaid by the fascination of the subject. The treatment was meant to be discursive rather than systematic but habits of mind refuse to be suppressed entirely and a certain amount of system has crept in. In these problems where our thought fluctuates continually from the excessively great to the excessively small, from the star to the atom and back to the star, the story of 6 Preface progress is rich in variety if it has not lost too much in the telling, it should convey in full measure the delights and the troubles of scientific investigation in all its phases. Temperatures are expressed throughout in degrees Centigrade. The English billion, trillion, c. io l8, c. are used. A. S. E. CONTENTS LECTURE I.
