n MNASSA : Monthly Notes of the Astronomical Society of South Africa - An Introduction to Star Formation, Derek Ward-Thompson and Anthony P. Whitworth : book review

Volume 70, Issue 7_8
  • ISSN : 0024-8266



The success of the recent Spitzer and Herschel satellites in extending sensitive observations to the medium- and long-wavelength regions of the infrared has led to many new observations of star-forming regions. Coupling these with the high-resolution millimeter-wave mapping to be expected from the ALMA array telescope in Chile, the field is bound to experience explosive growth in the near future. This book by Ward-Thompson and Whitworth has thus appeared at a very opportune moment.
