Stellar Interiors: Physical Principles, Structure, and Evolution by Carl J. Hansen
English | PDF | 2004 | 533 Pages | ISBN : 1461264979 | 8.45 MB
This text, updated and expanded from the first edition, is designed for beginning students of stellar physics, and introduces the fundamentals of stellar structure and evolution. In emphasizing the general picture of the life cycles of stars and the physics responsible, it 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.
