Overview

The proceedings of the XXVIIth ESLAB symposium presents a comprehensive review of the status of astrophysics and cosmology today. The book presents an outstanding insight into the current and future fundamental problems which will be addressed by the scientists in the 21st century.
The accomplishments of the golden decades, in which many new observing windows have been opened to all astronomers through space exploration, the 4-meter class ground telescopes and interferometric techniques at radio wavelengths, are highlighted concisely and understandably. The state of our theoretical understanding of the Universe, extending from the nearby interstellar medium (the Solar Bubble) out to the very early stages of the Universe, and the importance of gravitational lenses are illustrated in lucid reviews. A set of beautiful color pictures from recent experiments illustrates the future of observational astronomy. The reviews are comprehensive and are at a level suitable for professional astronomers who want to remain informed about the fields beyond their specialties, for students at graduate and undergraduate level, as well as for decision makers who need to understand the importance of the scientific challenges which will require support in the future.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Papers based on lectures presented at the 27th ESLAB Symposium (sponsored by NASA, the European Space Agency, and others ), held in Noordwijk, The Netherlands, May 1993, provide a synoptic view of the field and to suggest what are like to be major growth areas in astronomy, astrophysics, and cosmology. They make intelligible to the wide astronomical community the current state of astrophysical understanding in areas ranging from the interior of the Sun and the mapping of the Local Interstellar Medium to gravitational lensing of distant quasars and the observational validation of cosmological theories.
