The Search for Other Worlds: Fourteenth Astrophysics Conference

Hardback
This conference presents new advances in the study of planets orbiting other stars, their formation, and evolution, and methods for their detection and characterization using both ground-based and space-borne observations. Participants in the conference are active researchers in this new field, and the content of the conference is at a level appropriate for researchers and graduate students in astronomy or physics. Topics include: statistics of planetary systems; establishing the environment for planet formation; dusty disks and unseen planets; giant planets; terrestrial planets, dynamics and dynamical evolution of planetary systems; and programs and techniques for detection and characterization of extrasolar planets.
