Overview

"Stellar Physics" is a rather unique book among the growing literature on star formation and evolution. Not only gives the author, a leading expert in the field, a very thorough description of the current knowledge about stellar physics but he deals with equal care about the many problems that this field of research still faces. A bibliography with well over 650 entries will make this book an unparalleled source of references.
"Fundamental Concepts and Stellar Equilibrium" is the first of two volumes, and can be read, as the second volume, as an independent work. It provides an extensive introduction into all physical processes that play a role in star formation and evolution. The basic equations describing stellar equilibrium are discussed, where attention is paid to both the theoretical and the numerical aspects.
