This publication includes the complaints of the 1st 'Rencontres de l'Observatoire' which used to be held on the Meudon campus of the Paris Observatory on September 21-25, 1998. the topic addressed was once 'Galaxy evolution: Connecting the far away Universe with the neighborhood fossil record'. This colloquium was once a venture devised by means of a bunch of astronomers who, in France but additionally in Europe, within the usa, in South the United States, or even in Japan, have labored for a very long time with Roger and Giusa Cayrel. Roger and Giusa had an enormous impact on us all. They taught us of their discrete method, the care of the observations and the rigor within the interpretation. along with the displays of Jun Jugaku and Rene Racine and the presentation of Pierre Couturier of the tale of the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (presentation which regrettably doesn't look during this publication) numerous papers confer with the function of Roger and Giusa in astronomy. Their contribution to the examine of the galactic evolution has been primary. Our Milky means is the galaxy which are studied in so much info. From the research of our Galaxy's previous inhabitants, you'll comprehend what our Milky manner was once like very quickly after its beginning, on the related level the place we now become aware of the very far-off and therefore very 'young' galaxies. The organizers desired to collect with Roger and Giusa Cayrel specialists of the outdated Galactic inhabitants, of the far away galaxies and of the galactic evolution.

Effects of Mass Loss on Stellar Evolution: IAU Colloquium no. 59 Held in Miramare, Trieste, Italy, September 15–19, 1980

The IAU Colloquium No. fifty nine, "The results of mass loss on Stellar Evolution" was once hung on September 15-19, 1980 on the foreign Centre for Theoretical Physics, Miramare, Trieste (Italy), less than the auspices of the IAU government Co~ mittee and the Italian nationwide Council of analysis. The making plans of this convention begun years in the past du­ ring the IAU Symposium No.

Cerebral Cortex: Neurodegenerative and Age-Related Changes in Structure and Function of Cerebral Cortex

This quantity of Cerebral Cortex is devoted to Sir John Eccles, who was once an lively member of the advisory board for the sequence until eventually his dying in may well 1997. His enter as to what subject matters can be coated in destiny volumes of this sequence might be sorely neglected. the current quantity is worried with neurodegenerative issues and age­ comparable adjustments within the constitution and serve as of the cerebral cortex, a subject matter that has attracted expanding curiosity as durability and the variety of elderly contributors within the inhabitants elevate.

Alcoholism and Drug Dependence: A Multidisciplinary Approach

It really is for me, as President of the Merseyside Lancashire & Cheshire Council on Alcoholism, a sign privilege to jot down a quick foreword to those complaints of the 3rd overseas convention on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. throughout the week specialists, from across the world, in all these disciplines that have a contribution to make to the answer of the issues of alcoholism and drug dependence, surveyed fresh advances in our wisdom of the aetiology, epidemiology, early acceptance, administration, and the social and business implications of those dual scourges of the modern scene.

The isotopic composition of the ejecta from the 20 MO star (6 M O He core). 2. Nucleosynthesis in Type II Supernovae and the Abundances in Very Metal-Poor Stars Very metal poor stars provide important clues to investigate early Galactic chemical and dynamical evolution because they contain valuable information about this time.

This leaves them rather limited financial and, more importantly, human resources to tackle much larger projects at this time. 2. AN OPTION FOR COUDE SPECTROSCOPY A promising and affordable approach to enhance the CFHT's spectroscopic capabilities, and further elucidate the Cosmic Connection through abundance analysis, would be to feed its excellent cross-dispersed coude spectrograph with the photons collected by the 8-m primary of the Gemini telescope located 200 m away. Suitable trades with Gemini users for that connection would have to be made on the basis of scientific balance.
