A neutron star is the collapsed core of a massive supergiant star , which had a total mass of between 10 and 25 solar masses , possibly more if the star was especially metal-rich. Once formed, they no longer actively generate heat, and cool over time; however, they may still evolve further through collision or accretion.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 January There are few things in the universe as apocalyptic in scope as the death of a star -- generally speaking, the remnant of a star at the end of its lifespan will turn into one of three objects: a white dwarf, a neutron star, or a black hole there are a few other variations or extensions, but this is the primary end.
This particular book is designed for the advanced undergraduate in physical sciences, or the beginning graduate student. It presumes no specific astrophysical education, although few without an interest in astrophysics will seek out this text, and thus readers will probably know a thing or two. It also assumes a good proficiency with integral and differential calculus; the higher the mathematical training the better for understanding this text.
Compact objects are the core fragments or remnants of stars -- as such, they differ from stars in significant ways.
They are no longer burning fuel in fusion reactions, which is what supports much of the mass of regular stars against gravitational collapse. The three objects of the title are different degrees of the same type of object, and what a collapsing star becomes depends upon how much mass still remains at the exhaustion of nuclear energy processes.
The collapse of such large objects impacts matter at the very smallest levels -- hence, the study here is not simply one of gravitational pull versus surface area and small size relative to stars, but also of the distortions that occur at the smallest of levels due to the tremendous warping. The book begins with a broad overview of what is known and not known, and what will be studied.
For instance, the dividing lines between objects is blurry, particularly when it comes to determining the line between neutron star and black hole formation.
Similarly, there are other methods of forming black holes accretion of materials onto neutron stars, supermassive star collapse, or primordial black holes that are theoretically possible but still as of the publication of this text still very speculative.
Compact objects are important in the universe for many reasons. Many galaxies seem to have such compact objects both at their centre and scattered through the stellar populations.
They produce various x-ray sources pulsars as well as other interesting objects in the sky. This is not a book for the casual, back-yard astronomer. It can be used by the advanced amateur, however, who has sufficient mathematics and physics background.
There are problems to be worked this is a text book, after all -- many of these are fairly elementary with computer programming now; at the time of publication, the regular use of computers was only beginning to become commonplace. One hopes that the text will be updated someday, particularly as some aspects of the field change sufficiently that various emphases have changed -- in thinking about popular astrophysics if such is not an oxymoron , black holes tend to be attractive if you'll forgive the pun!
The authors, both professors at Cornell, have interest in astrophysics, cosmology, stellar dynamics, and relativity. The text is solid and interesting, worthwhile even twenty years after original publication.

Synopsis This self-contained textbook brings together many different branches of physics--e. Black holes, White Dwarfs, and Neutron Stars The physics of Compact Objects Compact objects-black holes, white dwarfs, and neutron stars-are fundamental constituents of the physical universe.
They are born when normal stars die. This book is a product of the recent explosion of scientific activity centering on these objects. This self-contained work is a rigorous, yet understandable, references on the latest theoretical and observational developments. It is at once an outstanding text for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in physics, and a practical self-study guide for scientists in other disciplines and scientifically-oriented laypersons.
No prior knowledge of astrophysics or relativity theory is required. Compact objects provide unique cosmic laboratories for testing physics and astrophysics under extreme conditions.
They interact via all four of the fundamental forces of nature: electromagnetism, strong and weak nuclear forces, and gravitation. As a result, the book brings together topics from such diverse areas as solid state physics, nuclear and particle physics, relativity and hydrodynamics. In the text, the authors first analyze the physical properties of compact objects in their simplest states. Next, they investigate the effects of rotation, magnetic fields, X-ray and neutrino emission, the generation of gravitational waves, and so on.
The theory is assessed in light of the most recent observational data. Stuart L. Shapiro and Dr. From the Back Cover Black holes, White Dwarfs, and Neutron Stars The physics of Compact Objects Compact objects-black holes, white dwarfs, and neutron stars-are fundamental constituents of the physical universe.

Briefing by: AccessScience Editors. Last reviewed: October Researchers have recorded the most massive neutron star on record, weighing as much as 2. This astonishingly dense object is seemingly at the limits of the maximum mass attainable by neutron stars before they collapse into black holes. Further study of the hefty star should help scientists better understand the extreme physics within these unusual stellar remnants, whose internal conditions cannot be recreated on Earth.

Двадцать миллионов долларов - это очень большие деньги, но если принять во внимание, за что они будут заплачены, то это сущие гроши. ГЛАВА 19 - А вдруг кто-то еще хочет заполучить это кольцо? - спросила Сьюзан, внезапно заволновавшись. - А вдруг Дэвиду грозит опасность. Стратмор покачал головой: - Больше никто не знает о существовании кольца. Именно поэтому я и послал за ним Дэвида.

Ущерб в долларах. - Нам нужна точная цифра, - напомнила Сьюзан. - Оценки ущерба всюду приводятся разные. - Она еще раз взглянула на текст. - Элементы, ответственные… У Дэвида Беккера, находившегося в трех тысячах миль от комнаты оперативного управления, загорелись .
Самый великий панк со времен Злого Сида. Ровно год назад он разбил здесь себе голову. Сегодня годовщина. Беккер кивнул, плохо соображая, какая тут связь. - Такая прическа была у Табу в день гибели. - Парень снова сплюнул.
Они были похожи на сперматозоиды, стремящиеся проникнуть в неподатливую яйцеклетку. - Пора, ребята! - Джабба повернулся к директору. - Мне необходимо решение. Или мы начинаем отключение, или же мы никогда этого не сделаем. Как только эти два агрессора увидят, что Бастион пал, они издадут боевой клич.
Фонд постоянно выступал против того, что именовалось им оруэлловскими средствами подслушивания, имеющимися в распоряжении правительственных агентств, прежде всего АНБ. Этот фонд был для Стратмора постоянной головной болью. - Не вижу ничего нового, - сказала Сьюзан.
И тут в его памяти зазвучал голос одного из преподавателей Корпуса морской пехоты, подсказавший ему, что делать. Применив силу, говорил этот голос, ты столкнешься с сопротивлением. Но заставь противника думать так, как выгодно тебе, и у тебя вместо врага появится союзник.
Бармен с видимым облегчением приготовил ему напиток. Беккер оглядел затейливое убранство бара и подумал, что все, что с ним происходит, похоже на сон. В любой другой реальности было бы куда больше здравого смысла. Я, университетский профессор, - подумал он, - выполняю секретную миссию.
