Physics, formation and evolution of rotating stars by André Maeder ( )
14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rotation is ubiquitous at each step of stellar evolution, from star formation to the final stages, and it affects the course of evolution, the timescales and nucleosynthesis. Stellar rotation is also an essential prerequisite for the occurrence of Gamma-Ray Bursts. This book examines the basic mechanical and thermal effects of rotation
Star formation by International Astronomical Union Symposium ( Book )
9 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and Undetermined and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Observational tests of the stellar evolution theory : symposium no. 105 held in Geneva, Switzerland, September 12-16, 1983 by International Astronomical Union ( Book )
15 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 259 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Physics of star formation in galaxies by F Palla ( Book )
14 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The book begins with a historical introduction, "Star Formation: The Early History", that presents new material of interest for students and historians of science. This is followed by two long articles on "Pre-Main-Sequence Evolution of Stars and Young Clusters" and "Observations of Young Stellar Objects". These articles on the fascinating problem of star formation from interstellar matter give a thorough overview of present-day theories and observations. The articles contain material so far unpublished in the astronomical literature. The book addresses graduate students and can be used as a textbook for advanced courses in stellar astrophysics

The sun from space by Kenneth R Lang ( )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Sun from Space is a comprehensive account of solar astrophysics and how our perception and knowledge of this star have gradually evolved as mankind has elucidated ever more of its mysteries. The emphasis is on the last decade, which has seen three successful solar spacecraft missions: SOHO, Ulysses and Yohkoh. Together these have confirmed many aspects of the SUN and its output, and provided new clues to the numerous open questions that remain. The author, a leading researcher in the field, writes in a clear and concise style. Known also for his famous books "Astrophysical Formulae", "Sun, Earth and Sky", and the prize-winning "Wanderers in Space", he has succeeded once again in addressing a complex scientific topic in a very approachable way. Hence, this generously illustrated book, whilst primarily addressing students, will also be of interest to a broader readership covering all levels from the amateur to the expert
