Some 70 papers present the flare star problem from both a physical and evolutionary aspect, and represent an interaction between investigators working on flare stars in clusters and associations, and those working on the UV Ceti stars in solar vicinity. The variety of perspectives reveal a physical similarity among several non-stable phenomena, and suggest that the different manifestations of stellar activity result from the release of some unknown kind of energy in the outer layers of young stars. The papers deal not only with different aspects of flare stars, but also with such related objects as T Tauri stars, fluors, and Herbig-Haro objects. Annotation c.
