Overview

About

The study of stellar physics plays a central role in the broader study of astrophysics. This authoritative textbook, which is the second volume of a comprehensive three-volume course on theoretical astrophysics, tackles stars and stellar systems. Designed to help graduate students and researchers develop an understanding of the key physical processes governing stars and stellar systems, it teaches the fundamentals, and then builds on them to give the reader an in-depth understanding of advanced topics. the book’s modular design allows the chapters to be approached individually, yet the transitions are seamless, creating a coherent and connected whole. it can be used alone or in conjunction with Volume I, which covers a wide range of astrophysical processes, and the forthcoming Volume III, on galaxies and cosmology.
