            Begins by addressing basic questions about active galactic nuclei: What are they? How can they be found? How do they evolve? This book assesses the evidence for massive black holes and considers how they generate power by accretion. It discusses X-ray and g-ray emission, radio em...ission and jets, emission and absorption lines, and others.

            Opinions on the large-scale structure of the early universe range from primeval chaos to a well-ordered mass distribution. This work argues that the evolution proceeded from a nearly uniform initial state to a progressively irregular and clumpy universe. It also describes progres...s in the use of statistical measures of the clustering.
