Overview

Most stars show some degree of magnetic activity, from the familiar variations in the Sun's magnetic field, which coincide with the sun-spot cycle, to the enormous magnetic fields created by rotating neutron stars. Magnetic fields are also a potential key to understanding the formation of new stars and the behavior of galactic nuclei. This book by one of the leading figures in stellar magnetism provides an authoritative survey of this rapidly developing field. Based on a lifetime of research, the book places stellar magnetism in a broad astronomical scope and provides a thorough, well-argued treatment of current work. It covers the key topics, discussing the relevant mathematics in detail and including numerous references, and many of the topics, particularly accretion discs, dynamos, and winds, are equally important to the study of galaxies and galactic nuclei.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Stellar Magnetism provides a mathematical analysis of the behaviour and consequences of magnetic fields for the structure, properties and evolution of stars. . .The price represents good value for a volume of this magnitude and technical quality. Stellar Magnetism provides a comprehensive account of a complex subject. It will be an important reference for the decade to come and will provide source material for advanced courses in astrophysics. In the longer term, it will serve as a measure of scientific achievement at the present epoch."—Iigh Temperatures - High Pressure
