Reviews - What do customers think about Stellar Structure and Evolution (Astronomy and Astrophysics Library)?

Pages coming off  Aug 25, 2008
It arrived to me in Italy 20-15 days before the standard international shipping's time, in perfect conditions, as bought from the bookshop. Few days later the first page came off.

just to know that it italy this book costs over 150 euro!
A star's lifetime  Jul 29, 2004
What happens in the lifetime of a star? This basically is the subject of the book. It describes from basic physical principles where ever possible how a star is formed and how it burns. Kippenhahn shows how inside a star, the gravitational pressure is necessarily balanced by the outgoing radiation and matter pressure.

We see the cycle of how a star burns its hydrogen, synthesising helium in the process. Then, how heavier elements are formed. Finally, whether a star novas or not, depending on its mass.

The Hertzsprung-Russell diagram is shown as a concise way to describe the lifecycle trajectory of a star, over billions of years.

Well suited for physics students.
