Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521591643, Hardcover)The hottest debate in astronomy and cosmology today is the value of the Hubble Constant that fixes the size and age of the Universe. At a workshop at the Space Telescope Science Institute, experts from around the world presented the latest results from a plethora of techniques for determining the Hubble Constant. The value has always been controversial, but for the first time at this meeting experts' results agreed, to within twenty percent. The articles in this book provide a comprehensive account of the Hubble Constant debate with the latest results from gravitational lensing, supernovae and novae, the Tully-Fisher relation, the Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect, globular clusters, planetary nebulae, light echoes, and the Hubble Space Telescope Key Project. This timely volume will become a standard reference for graduate students and researchers in astronomy and cosmology.
