Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The 88 papers concentrate on the apparent generality of the disk- wind-jet geometry on scales ranging from protostars to the centers of active galactic nuclei. After introductory overviews of accretion, they cover the theories of physical processes and global disk structure, active galactic nuclei, neutron stars and galactic black holes, cataclysmic variables, and stars. Specific topics include the differential rotation and magnetic fields of T Tauri stars, a new x-ray survey for accreting objects, lower bounds on neutron star radii from measurements of the x-ray spectra of low-mass x-ray binaries, the accretion disk in NGC 4258, water vapor megamasers in active galactic nuclei, the tidal disruption of stars by massive black holes, and exploring magnetohydrodynamic turbulence on the computer.
