Reviews the state of the art in astronomical 3D spectroscopy
Focuses on the scientific questions that can be answered with integral-field spectroscopy
Contains the proceedings of possibly the last conference ever on integral-field spectroscopy
This volume contains the proceedings of possibly the last conference ever on integral-field spectroscopy, a daring statement, indicating that integral-field spectroscopy has evolved into a mature technique and a common tool for astronomical research. All the contributors are noted authorities in the field.
Nowadays many integral-field spectrographs are installed on 4m to 8-10m class telescopes around the world. While many of those instruments are referred to in this volume, the book is not dedicated to technical issues, but rather focuses on the scientific questions that can be answered with integral-field spectroscopy, ranging from solar system studies all the way to high redshift surveys.
Overall readers get a state-of-the-science review of astronomical 3D spectroscopy.
