The news that a myriad of starlets caused the milkiness of the Milky Way was among the wonderful discoveries described by Galileo in the Sidereus nuncius (1610) and announced on its title page. Despite this, nebular observations had, during the seventeenth century and well into the eighteenth, only a marginal and episodical character, especially in comparison with the widespread interest in the solar system. Several astronomers, in turning their telescopes to the skies, happened to observe or… Expand
Nebulae, Star Clusters and the Milky Way: From Galileo to William Herschel
Among the stars listed by Ptolemy in his catalogue in the Almagest are some seven that he describes as nepheloeides, ‘cloud-like’, from nephele, cloud (in Latin, nebula). Their diffuse shapeExpand

Lensing Effects in Retarded Gravity
TLDR
It is shown that considering general relativistic effects without neglecting retardation one can explain the apparent excess matter leading to gravitational lensing in both galaxies and galaxy clusters. Expand
The Cosmological Decrease of Galactic Density and the Induced Retarded Gravity Effect on Rotation Curves
Galaxies are huge physical systems having dimensions of many tens of thousands of light years. Thus any change at the galactic center will be noticed at the rim only tens of thousands of years later.Expand

Star formation in galaxies and star clusters
This thesis is devoted to star formation from galaxy-scales (≈ 10 000 pc) to sub-star cluster-scales (≈ 0.1 pc). I develop and test a new method to derive star formation histories of Galaxies fromExpand

Lorentz Symmetry Group, Retardation, Intergalactic Mass Depletion and Mechanisms Leading to Galactic Rotation Curves
TLDR
It is demonstrated, using a detailed model, that one can explain the radial velocities of galactic matter in the M33 galaxy without postulating dark matter and is perfectly consistent with the current observational knowledge of galactic and extra galactic material content and dynamics. Expand
Deep Convolutional Neural Networks models for the binary morphological classification of SDSS-galaxies
TLDR
The deep learning approach for the determination of morphological types of galaxies was presented and it turned out that the deep convolutional neural networks InceptionV3 and DenseNet121 with MAE-loss function show the best result attaining 93.3% accuracy. Expand
