This ebook deals a necessary compendium of astronomical high-resolution concepts. contemporary years have noticeable substantial advancements in such suggestions, that are severe to advances in lots of parts of astronomy. As mirrored within the booklet, those strategies may be divided into direct tools, interferometry, and reconstruction tools, and will be utilized to a tremendous number of astrophysical platforms, starting from planets, unmarried stars and binaries to lively galactic nuclei, offering angular answer within the micro- to tens of milliarcsecond scales. Written through specialists of their fields, the chapters disguise adaptive optics, aperture covering imaging, spectra disentangling, interferometry, fortunate imaging, Roche tomography, imaging with interferometry, interferometry of AGN, AGN reverberation mapping, Doppler- and magnetic imaging of stellar surfaces, Doppler tomography, eclipse mapping, Stokes imaging, and stellar tomography.

This ebook is meant to allow a subsequent iteration of astronomers to use high-resolution options. It informs readers on how you can in achieving the easiest angular answer within the seen and near-infrared regimes from diffraction-limited to micro-arcsecond scales.
