Description
The second part of this important volume, containing selected papers by the celebrated Armenian astronomer Victor A. Ambartsumian, includes a number of papers describing his discovery of stellar associations as a dynamical entity. Although originally treated with scepticism by fellow astronomers this discovery has had farreaching implications in its field.
The second section of the book contains groundbreaking papers on the evolution of galaxies and the violent activity within them, which were early presentations of ideas now central to the study of astronomy and astrophysics. The final section contains two papers about the philosophy of astronomy and Ambartsumian’s ideas about how the field would develop. It will be an invaluable reference source for astronomers and astrophysicists all over the world.
