    This book gives a thorough theoretical description of the fundamental physics of interstellar dust: its composition, morphology, size distribution, dynamics, optical and thermal properties, alignment, polarisation, scattering, radiation and spectral : Capa dura. The book is designed as an astrophysics textbook to provide a comprehensive introduction to the physics of Interstellar Matter. It is aimed primarily at those undertaking postgraduate courses, or thos.

      Workers in the field of interstellar dust must find this a most valuable reference book to possess. -Contemporary Physics, Vol Issue 6, Krugel's new book is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses and is tremendously appealing because it requires no prior knowledge of astronomy. The physical and chemical properties of large polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon molecules and their role in the interstellar medium are highlighted, and the physics and chemistry of warm and dense photodissociation regions are discussed. This is an invaluable reference source for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and research scientists.

    (b) If % of the interstellar mass is in the form of dust in spherical particles of radius a= A = 0˚:1 m and density 2gcm 3, what is the mean number density of dust grains in interstellar space? (c) Let Q ext be the ratio of the visual (V band, = m) extinction cross section to the geometric cross section ˇa2. Suppose that Q ext. Emphasizing microscopic physical and chemical processes in space, and their influence on the macroscopic structure of the interstellar medium of galaxies, this book includes the latest developments in an exciting area of molecular astrophysics. New space and ground-based observational Brand: A. G. G. M. Tielens.
