DescriptionExtragalactic Astrophysics synthesizes the most important topics in the field of extragalactic astrophysics at the advanced undergraduate and graduate level, providing the reader with the foundation and tools for research in any of these areas. It attempts to cover a broad range of topics for a graduate-level class in a physics department where students' available credit hours for astrophysics classes are limited. The sections cover galactic structure, external galaxies, galaxy clustering, active galaxies, general relativity and cosmology.
About EditorsJames R Webb is currently a full professor of physics at Florida International University (FIU). He received his bachelors in physics at Ball State University, and his masters and PhD in astronomy at the University of Florida. His research is the study of blazar variability on all timescales and, although primarily an optical astronomer, has worked in the UV, X-ray and gamma-ray spectral domains as well.
