The Physics of Interstellar Dust

The Physics of Interstellar Dust "In this single volume, readers are introduced to the composition, morphology and size distribution of dust grains, their growth and destruction mechanisms, dynamical behaviour, optical properties, spectral features and basic surface reactions. Also discussed are the roles dust plays in star formation and the spectral appearance of protostars and dusty galactic nuclei." Written in a concise and clear manner, this book will prove valuable reading for advanced undergraduates and graduate students. Active researchers in astronomy, planetary science and solid state physics in need of a source of detailed information will also appreciate this work.
