Charge-coupled units (CCDs) have revolutionised astronomy. Even reasonable CCD cameras could be ten instances a delicate as photographic movie, they usually bring a digitised picture that's effortless to augment utilizing a private computing device. David Ratledge has introduced jointly contributions from twelve top amateurs from worldwide, those who are in many instances generating astronomical photographs of a top quality that opponents these observatories in basic terms of 10 years in the past. those specialists describe their strategies and ideas, and supply crucial counsel and recommendation for someone who's picking or utilizing a CCD digital camera. Now look through the color Gallery behind this publication to determine simply what they've got done!

n-Harmonic Mappings Between Annuli: The Art of Integrating Free Lagrangians (Memoirs of the American Mathematical Society)

The principal topic of this paper is the variational research of homeomorphisms $h: {\mathbb X} \overset{\textnormal{\tiny{onto}}}{\longrightarrow} {\mathbb Y}$ among given domain names ${\mathbb X}, {\mathbb Y} \subset {\mathbb R}^n$. The authors search for the extremal mappings within the Sobolev house ${\mathscr W}^{1,n}({\mathbb X},{\mathbb Y})$ which reduce the strength necessary ${\mathscr E}_h=\int_{{\mathbb X}} \,|\!
