About the Authors
  • Recent observations have demonstrated that supernovae and gamma ray bursts are driven by strong jets of energy and other asymmetrical effects that reveal unknown physical properties. This volume highlights the burgeoning era of routine supernova polarimetry and the new insights into core collapse and thermonuclear explosions. Chapters by leading scientists summarize the status of a rapidly developing perspective on stellar explosions in a valuable resource for graduate students and research scientists.

    • Illustrates the full range of exciting topics in this era in the study of cosmic explosions
    • Defines areas of additional research
