Schaum's Outline of Astronomy (Schaum, 2001)


Schaum's Outline of Astronomy
by Stacy E. Palen

The purpose of this Outline is to serve as a supplement to a basic astronomy text.
Much of the material here is abbreviated, and students should use this book as a guide to the key
concepts in modern astronomy, but not as an all-inclusive resource.
Topics covered range from planetary astronomy to cosmology, in the modern context. The first
chapter covers most of the phsyics required to obtain a basic understanding of astronomical phenomena. The student will most likely come back to this chapter again and again as they progress through the book. The order of the topics has been set by the most common order of these topics in textbooks (near objects to far objects), but many of the chapters are quite independent, with few references to previous chapters, and may be studied out of order.
