The physics of starsCode: STE1002
Auteurs: A. C. Phillips
Korte beschrijving: A compact yet comprehensive account concerned with how key aspects of stellar structure, evolution and nucleosynthesis can be understood in terms of basic physics. Begins with the most elementary factors and progresses to more advanced physical concepts. The author has been careful not to avoid more complex issues, instead carefully explaining each topic before it is applied. Provides a balanced treatment of fundamental physics and astrophysics and the relationship between them. Features an abundance of theoretical models, questions and hints for solution.
