This book collects the review papers given at a symposium on Stellar Populations hosted by the Space Telescope Science Institute, Baltimore, Maryland in May 1986. The reviewers present a comprehensive summary of our present understanding of stellar populations within galaxies. The material covered includes the initial mass function and star formation histories; the chemical history of galaxies, and their observed evolution as a function of redshift; stellar kinematics; and modelling of synthetic populations. The book is a valuable analysis of the role of stellar populations in determining galactic structure and evolution.

This book addresses graduate students in the first place and is meant as a modern compendium to the existing texts on black hole astrophysics. The authors present in pedagogically written articles our present knowledge on black holes covering mathematical models including numerical aspects and physics and astronomical observations as well. In addition, in their write-up of a panel discussion the participants of the school address the existence of black holes consenting that it has by now been verified with certainty.
