Book description

Globular clusters are spherical, densely packed groups of stars found around galaxies. They are thought to have formed at the same time as their host galaxy and thus provide a powerful probe for understanding stellar and galaxy evolution, as well as being studied as objects of interest in their own right. This timely volume presents invited articles by a team of world leaders who gathered at the X Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics to review our current understanding of globular clusters. It provides an accessible introduction to the field for graduate students, and a comprehensive and up-to-date reference for researchers.

Reviews

‘This book provides a timely overview of our knowledge of globular clusters. Based on a Canary Island Winter School, the volume presents eight sections covering some of the most important areas of research into globular clusters. … I think this is an excellent overview of many interesting areas in the study of globular clusters.’
