This quantity comprises the complaints of the 5th clinical assembly of the Spanish Astronomical Society (Sociedad Espanola de Astronomfa, SEA). The assembly was once held on the Universidad de Castilla los angeles Mancha in Toledo, from September nine to thirteen, 2002. the development introduced jointly 219 members who pre­ sented their most up-to-date leads to many various matters. compared to the former medical conferences of the Society, the numbers of oral talks and poster contributions (122 and sixty four, respectively) are swiftly expanding, confirming that the ocean meetings have gotten some degree of connection with determine the pursuits and achievements of astrophysical examine in Spain. in the course of the assembly, the ocean made public the granting of the Prize to the simplest Spanish Ph. D. Thesis in As­ tronomy and Astrophysics for the interval 2000-2001 ex aequo to Dr. A. Zurita and Dr. E. Villaver. this can be the second one time that the ocean is awarding this prize, which goal is to motivate younger spanish astrophysicists to pursue a excessive point medical occupation. The Society is indebted to the Universidad de Castilla l. a. Mancha, and, specifically, to the San Pedro Martir employees, for its hospitality. it's also indebted to the neighborhood Organizing Committee for its commitment and the great surroundings that prevailed at any second, and to the medical Organizing Committee for its excel­ lent work.

Luminosity redshift diagram for the extragalctic sources identified at high Galactic latitude: BLAGN (filled circles), NELG (hollow circles), G&C (triangles), BLLAC (squares). 1 to z rv 3. All of the NELGs in the XMS have luminosities in excess to 1042 erg s- 1 which means that they host an active nucleus. Even the majority of the G&C objects, most of which are just isolated absorption line galaxies, have very high X-ray luminosities implying again the presence of an active nucleus.

These are, anyhow, items I've been thinking about for a long time. Instrumentation. The ideas of adaptive optics and optical interferometry can be traced back very far, but wide-spread implementation (partly associated with the declassification of some military technology) belongs to the most recent decade. At the moment it is hard to pick out Earth-shaking science done this way, but there is clearly great promise for tasks like resolving star formation regions in infrared radiation from other galaxies, seeing closer to the black holes of both stellar and galactic systems, perhaps separating the light from exoplanets, and so forth.

Formation of stars. The formation of stars and of galaxies both count as unsolved problems, but in slightly different senses. For star formation, we think that all the essential physics is known (gravitation, turbulence, MHD, and all the rest), but the computations are simply too complex to carry out. An extrapolation of Moore's law should take care of this, though not immediately, if one really wants to be able to start with 105 M 8 and follow it to the level of protoplanetary disks, binary system mass ratios, and such.
