Description


Some praise for the previous edition:

Besides being well-written, it presents some fresh perspectives . . . Well-designed . . . for students interested in astronomy and space, planetary, and earth sciences . . . It can also provide a readable introduction to the subject for scientists working in related areas . . .

-Physics Today

Designed for beginners in stellar physics, this book introduces the fundamentals of stellar structure and evolution. In emphasizing the general picture of the life cycles of stars and the physics responsible, Stellar Interiors also allows prospective specialists a taste of many of the detailed aspects of this mature discipline. The authors develop a solid foundation in important theory that is often overlooked in typical courses, yet steer clear of extraneous intensive mathematics and physics. The new edition has been updated throughout to incorporate new observational and theoretical insights, and the programs have been updated to modern standards.
