The book includes a number of new data obtained in recent years, in particular material relating to the recently discovered new structures in spiral galaxies: giant anticyclones, cyclones and slow bars. New methods for the detection of these structures are described. Types of vertical motions of stars and gas in the galaxies, whether due to the presence of spiral arms, or hose instability. An important place is given to modern numerical methods of describing the dynamics of galaxies, stellar as well and gas components. Algorithms of numerical models and a number of important results are presented. Other topics discussed in the book include: the role of vertical motions in the disk systems and a new two-dimensional model of the gas disk, the theory of turbulence; a simple self-consistent model of the inhomogeneous differentially rotating hot stellar disk of finite thickness; conditions for stability of stellar disks, taking into account the worse stabilizability of nonaxisymmetric disturbances compared to axisymmetric one; technique of construction of numerical dynamical models of gas and collisionless stellar disks; gravitational-hydrodynamic concept of spiral structures; problems in the dynamics of disks taking into account non-linear factors; a method of reconstruction of the three-dimensional velocity field of gas from the observational data; dynamic role of various components: the bulge, bar, halo, spirals; the dynamics of accretion disks; comprehensive analysis of large-scale processes in the accretion disk of binary stars, etc. Printed Pages: 756.
