An Introduction to Stellar Astrophysics is a concise textbook containing core content on and detailed examples of stellar physics and stellar astronomy - stellar formation, radiative transfer, stellar atmospheres, stellar interiors, nucleosynthesis, stellar evolution, chemically peculiar stars, and diffusion/5(13). A broad overview of theoretical stellar astrophysics is presented in a textbook intended for graduate students. Chapters are devoted to fundamental principles, assumptions, theorems, and polytropes; energy sources and sinks; the flow of energy through the star and the construction of stellar models; the theory of stellar evolution; relativistic stellar structure; the structure of distorted.
Book Description. Stellar Astrophysics contains a selection of high-quality papers that illustrate the progress made in research into the structure and evolution of stars. Senior undergraduates, graduates, and researchers can now be brought thoroughly up to date in this exciting and ever-developing branch of . An Introduction to Stellar Astrophysics aspires to provide the reader with an intermediate knowledge on stars whilst focusing mostly on the explanation of the functioning of stars by using basic physical concepts and observational results. The book is divided into seven chapters, featuring both core and optional content: Basic concepts Stellar.

ApJS,January ; and Bill Paxton, Matteo Cantiello. I purchased this book to self-educate myself on astrophysics and read/studied the book over the course of a year. This book covers all the fundamentals of astrophysics, the nature of stars, the solar system in particular and exoplanets in general, the nature of galaxies as well as cosmology and the universe at by: This textbook introduction to the basic elements of fundamental astronomy and astrophysics serves as a foundation for understanding the structure, evolution, and observed properties of stars.
The first half of the book explains how stellar motions, distances, luminosities, colors, radii, masses and temperatures are measured or derived/5(4). Since the fundamentals of stellar astrophysics have changed little in the past decade and as this book has been out of print for nearly that long, I felt that some may still find it useful for learning the basics.
"Stellar Physics" is a rather unique book among the growing literature on star formation and evolution.
Not only gives the author, a leading expert in the field, a very thorough description of the current knowledge about stellar physics but he deals with equal care about the many problems that this field of research still faces. An Introduction to Modern Stellar Astrophysics book.

This book is designed to cover the most important aspects of stellar astrophysics inside a one semester (or half-year) course and as such is relevant for advanced undergraduate students following a first course on stellar astrophysics, in physics or astronomy programs.
From Wikibooks, open books for an open world Jump to navigation Jump to search Stellar Astrophysics is the study of stars by means of theoretical physics and observational astronomy. Astronomy was turned into an active field of Physics by explaining stellar structure and evolution through natural laws of Physics.

This book is the final one in a series of three texts which together provide a modern, complete and authoritative account of our present knowledge of the stars.
It discusses the internal structure and the evolution of stars, and is completely self-contained. There is an emphasis on the basic physics governing stellar structure and the basic ideas on which our understanding of stellar structure.As the first advanced textbook on stellar astrophysics for nearly three decades, this long-awaited volume provides a thorough introduction for graduate students and an up-to-date review for 5/5(1).Astrophysics is the branch of astronomy that employs the principles of physics and chemistry "to ascertain the nature of the astronomical objects, rather than their positions or motions in space".
Among the objects studied are the Sun, other stars, galaxies, extrasolar planets, the interstellar medium and the cosmic microwave background.
