This book is unique in containing comprehensive, tutorial articles by recognized experts on almost every aspect of millimeter-wavelength astronomy. These include scientific reviews of topics ranging from the solar system, to studies of the milky way and other galaxies, and finally cosmological studies. Articles on molecular structure and using molecules to probe the dense interstellar medium and star formation give a good overview of these important areas of research. A variety of critical astrophysical topics including molecule formation, shocks, magnetic fields, turbulence, and energetics of the dense interstellar medium are covered. In addition to theory and observation, the volume includes very useful articles on experimental techniques, including antennas, receivers, and spectrometers.After placing the stars in a H-R diagram they determined stellar masses and ages based on ... with a number of recently published 1.3 mm surveys of Ha selected T Tauri stars in Taurus- Auriga (Beckwith et al. ... 1997) we have re-determined the stellar masses and ages using PMS evolutionary tracks and isochrones provided by Da#39;Antona aamp; Mazzitelli (1994; Fig. 1). Comparing the new mass distribution with the old one, a shift by a factor of two to lower stellar masses is obvious (Fig.
