This book gives both a comprehensive and detailed account of the current theoretical and observational investigations of the radio galaxy M87 in the Virgo cluster. A number of introductory chapters provide a general overview, which makes the book accessible also to non-specialists in the field.
The remaining chapters are devoted to a detailed treatment of special topics covering all relevant aspects of the galactic structure and jet.

Hermann-Josef Röser ist Privatdozent am Max-Planck-Institut für Astronomie in Heidelberg. Neben aktiver Forschung hält er Einführungsvorlesungen und -seminare. Dadurch Er war bis zu seiner Emeritierung Professor für Astronomie an der Universität Göttingen.
