The Muqaddimah: An Introduction to History

The Muqaddimah, usually translated as "Introduction" or "Prolegomenon," is an important Islamic background of the premodern global. Written by way of the good fourteenth-century Arab pupil Ibn Khaldûn (d. 1406), this huge paintings laid down the rules of a number of fields of information, together with philosophy of historical past, sociology, ethnography, and economics.

Sample text

The metal abundance increases when one goes from the outer regions into the center of these galaxies. Theories on chemical evolution of galaxies also take into account these abundance gradients in nearby spiral galaxies. (3) Among different galaxies, the metal content seems to vary; for instance, the two satellites of our Galaxy, the Small and the Large Magellanic Clouds (SMC and LMC) have a metallic abundance lower than that of our Galaxy. The effect is more pronounced for the SMC than for the LMC.

From these line profiles, one can derive the abundance ofa given chemical species. 3). Suppose fc- a moment that there is a magician able to change the abundance N of an element in a stellar atmosphere. He begins with a very small change and increases it little by little. He also measures the equivalent width of a given line of this element and watches it varying with N. It first varies proportional to N. But then it stops varying even with increasing N and after a while, it varies again, but now like N.

4. The corresponding surface temperatures are for BO spectral type, 28000 K ; B3, 13 000 K; AO, 9900 K ; AS, 8SOO K ; FO, 7000 K; FS, 6600 K ; GO, 6000 K; G8, 5300 K ; K5, 4100 K ; MO, 3200 K; M4, 2800 K; M6, 2400 K. Class V corresponds to main sequence sta rs while Class III corresponds to giant stars. s. The experimental HR diagram is well accounted for by the theory of stellar evolution. Stars evolve by varying their luminosities and external temperatures. The region where stars statistically concentrate in this diagram is the one where they evolve very slowly: this constitutes the main sequence which is composed of stars stabilized by the H nuclear burning.
