'There is no doubt that in The Chemically Controlled Cosmos Hartquist and Williams have produced an extremely valuable synthesis of our present knowledge of the important chemical processes in space.' New Scientist 'In this excellent and remarkable book, compressing a dozen learned textbooks into 160 ebullient pages, Hartquist and Williams endeavour to tell how the chemistry and physics of space are intimately entwined, one dictating the other. To achieve this, some fundamental chemistry and physics is outlined in chapters one to three, without using any mathematics. Readers who are unversed in physical science may fail to understand a great deal of this, but persevere, for you may still acquire insight into the way in which chemistry controls the cosmos.' Chemistry in Britain
' … a welcome addition to the bookshelves … You will need patience and concentration because there is so much detail packed into its 160 pages. But if you really want to understand what is out there and why, it's worth it.' Astronomy Now
' … a clear nonmathematical description of how the chemisty of simple molecules acts to regulate a number of important astro-environmental variables ... if astrochemistry has been the Cinderella of astronomy in recent years, this book is the ticket to the ball.' Nick Petford, THES ' … students of chemistry and cosmochemistry might enjoy this pleasantly produced, introductory book.' Irish Astronomical Journal
' The text is singularly easy to read, and ample use is made of helpful analogies that facilitate the understanding of difficult concepts … This is an excellent book, and, at just under £20 in hardback, it is good value for money.' David Flower, Webb Society Reviews
Simple chemistry governs a host of the exotic objects that populate our cosmos. What are the tools of the cosmic chemist? What can they teach us about the Universe we live in? These are the questions answered in this engaging and informative guide. In clear, non-technical terms, involving no formal mathematics, we are introduced to a wealth of the most exciting astrophysics studied today.See all Product description
