About the Authors
  • This second edition has been updated and revised and contains contributions covering important developments in this field, and reflecting on interesting insights into classical novae. The book examines thermonuclear processes, the evolution of nova systems, nova atmospheres and winds, the evolution of dust and molecules in novae, nova remnants and observations of novae in other galaxies. It includes observations across the electromagnetic spectrum, from radio to gamma rays, and discusses some of the most important outstanding problems in classical nova research.

    • The most-up-date overview on classical novae, covering both theory and observations
    • Completely revised and updated, with new chapters and new contributors
    • The definitive reference on these interesting objects for many years to come

    '… a comprehensive description of the state of current knowledge of novae. It serves as an excellent introduction to the subject and is well referenced. Its articles are written by people who have made substantial contributions to the subject and it will be a first port of call for anyone who needs to know about these fascinating stellar explosions.'
