Book description

Molecular hydrogen is the most abundant molecule in the Universe. In recent years, advances in theory and laboratory experiments coupled with breakthrough observations with important new telescopes and satellites have revolutionized our understanding of molecular hydrogen in space. It is now possible to address the question of how molecular hydrogen formed in the early Universe and the role it played in the formation of primordial structures. This timely volume presents articles from a host of experts who reviewed this new understanding at an international conference in Paris. This book provides the first multi-disciplinary synthesis of our new understanding of molecular hydrogen. It covers the theory of the physical processes and laboratory experiments, as well as the latest observations. It will therefore be an invaluable reference for all students and researchers in astrophysics and cosmology.

Reviews

‘… an invaluable reference for all students and researchers in astrophysics and cosmology.’

Source: Europe & Astronomy

‘This book covers what seems like a very narrow subject - a conference on the behaviour of one molecule in the interstellar medium. But what a molecule! This conference proceedings, like all others, is a mixed bag of excellent reviews, reports of important and novel work, and of course more ephemeral recent results. its particular virtue is that the conference was set at an important time with results from ISO and now FUSE available, with major new calculations being completed, and with exciting new laboratory experiments being done … a pleasure to hold, and not wildly expensive.’
