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. Student-friendly features include:
* Detailed examples to help the reader better grasp the most important
* A list of exercises is given at the end of each chapter and answers to a
selection of these are presented.
* Brief recalls of the most important physical concepts needed to properly
* A summary for each chapter
* Optional and advanced sections are included which may be skipped without
interfering with the flow of the core content.
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. It will also serve
as a basic reference for a full-year course as well as for researchers
working in related fields.
