Overview

Dynamic Sun presents a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the Sun, from its deep core to the outer corona, and the solar wind. The chapters are written by leading scientists in solar physics and deal with solar models and neutrinos, seismic Sun, rotation of the solar interior, helioseismic tomography, solar dynamo, spectro-polarimetry, solar photosphere and convection, dynamics and heating of the solar chromosphere,and solar transition region. With an introduction by eminent astrophysicist Eugene Parker, the twenty chapters are fully illustrated and have comprehensive reference lists.
