About the Book

"Spectroscopy enables the precise study of astronomical objects and phenomena. Bridging the gap between physics and astronomy, this is the first integrated graduate-level textbook on atomic astrophysics. It covers the basics of atomic physics and astrophysics, including state-of-the-art research applications, methods and tools. The content is evenly balanced between the physical foundations of spectroscopy and their applications to astronomical objects and cosmology. An undergraduate knowledge of physics is assumed, and relevant basic material is summarised at the beginning of each chapter. The material is completely self-contained and features sufficient background information for self-study. Advanced users will find it handy for spectroscopic studies. A website hosted by the authors contains updates, corrections, exercises and solutions, as well as news items from physics and astronomy related to spectroscopy. A link to this can be found at"--

"The text is evenly divided into atomic physics and astrophysics. The first seven chapters form the foundational elements of atomic processes and spectroscopy. The next seven chapters deal with astrophysical applications to specific objects and physical conditions. Each chapter follows the same plan. We begin with the essentials that all readers should be able to follow easily. However, towards the end of each chapter we outline some of the more advanced or specialized areas. The subject matter is broadly divided into 'basic' material in both areas, and 'advanced' material that incorporates state-of-the-art methods and results"--
