Spitzer, L. () Physical Processes in the Interstellar Médium. Wiley, Hoboken. has been cited by the following article: TITLE: Simulations of Colliding Uniform Density H2 Clouds. AUTHORS: Guillermo Arreaga-García, Jaime Klapp, Julio Saucedo Morales. This book offers the reader a basic knowledge of these processes and presents simple numeric estimates of the main quantities relevant to the interstellar medium. The main objects that constitute the interstellar space are described, but the emphasis of the book lies in the physical processes occurring in these objects, which may also occur in Brand: Springer-Verlag New York.

This work provides a comprehensive overview of our theoretical and observational understanding of the interstellar medium of galaxies. With emphasis on the microscopic physical and chemical processes in space, and their influence on the macroscopic structure of the interstellar medium of galaxies, the book includes developments in this area of molecular astrophysics. The study of the interstellar medium incorporates a large range of physical More processes on both large and small scales all of which are covered in this text. Together with the inclusion of simple models and problems at the end of each chapter this text provides a comprehensive overview and grounding in the study of the interstellar by:

"This book is a comprehensive account of the physical processes that take place in the interstellar medium and that determine its behavior. It is likely to become the bible on the subject."—Alexander Dalgarno, Harvard University. This book is the result of a meeting held in August, in Irsee, West Germany.

As the title suggests, the aim of the meeting was to discuss physical processes in interstellar clouds, determine the current status, aims and future direction of the research in this area.
