ASP Monograph

Twenty Years of ADASS

Volume MP-006

Print ISBN: 978-1-58381-822-0
e-Book ISBN: 978-1-58381-823-7
Published: 2013


This ASP Monograph is a retrospective of the first twenty years of the Astronomical Data Analysis Software and Systems (ADASS) conferences, which have been held annually since their inception in 1991.

The ADASS conferences enable scientists and scientific software developers to present and explore the latest innovations in algorithms, software, software systems, and technologies for astronomical data analysis and data management. They are the leading international forum for discussions about astronomical software and foster significant cross-fertilization of ideas between professionals working in these areas.

Each ADASS conference focuses on a set of key topics ranging from advanced visualization to the virtual observatory, algorithm development to web services. These and a wide range of additional topics are addressed in a program that includes invited speakers, contributed presentations, tutorial sessions, demonstrations, and “Birds of a Feather” discussion forums.

This retrospective includes previously published articles from the ADASS I through ADASS XX proceedings volumes, selected by the individual proceedings editors. The papers not only reflect on the state of the art at the time of original publication but also retain the flavor of the individual conferences. Many of these papers have had significant impact on the development of astronomical software over the past two decades, and will continue to do so in the future.

This volume will be of interest to a wide audience of scientists, scientific programmers, and science historians who are interested in the development and management of software systems for the physical sciences.

Atlas – Visible and Near Infrared Atlas of the Arcturus Spectrum 3727-9300 Å

Volume Atlas
Editor(s): Kenneth Hinkle, Lloyd Wallace, Jeff Valenti, and Dianne Harmer
Print ISBN: 1-58381-037-4
e-Book ISBN: N/A
Published: 2000


Special Offer: A Spectral Catalog of Arcturus. Purchase the 2005 and 2000 volumes and receive the 1995 volume FREE (see recommended products below).

One of three volumes, the Atlas provides nearly continuous wavelength coverage from 1150 Å to 5.3 mm, giving astronomers a precise reference work applicable to multi-wavelength studies. Few types of data are more useful and important for precision spectroscopy than well-established and well-calibrated reference spectra. Using the KPNO 4m, the coudé feed and spectrometer, and the Hubble Space Telescope STIS, Kenneth Hinkle (NOAO) and collaborators have compiled a well-calibrated, digital spectral catalog of Arcturus, a traditional cool star standard.
