This book contains the elaborated and updated versions of the 24 lectures given at the 43rd Saas-Fee Advanced Course. Written by four eminent scientists in the field, the book reviews the physical processes related to star formation, starting from cosmological down to galactic scales. It presents a detailed description of the interstellar medium and its link with the star formation. And it describes the main numerical computational techniques designed to solve the equations governing self-gravitating fluids used for modelling of galactic and extra-galactic systems. This book provides a unique framework which is needed to develop and improve the simulation techniques designed for understanding the formation and evolution of galaxies. Presented in an accessible manner it contains the present day state of knowledge of the field. It serves as an entry point and key reference to students and researchers in astronomy, cosmology, and physics.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The handbook `Star Formation in Galaxy Evolution: Connecting Numerical Models to Reality' is an excellent work presenting all aspects of star formation processes. It can be used by beginners, young master and PhD students and experts in this field. The manuscript introduces the basic knowledge in a very understandable way and also presents recent discoveries. This book is a comprehensive handbook for lectures introducing the star formation physics and galaxy evolution." (Hubert Siejkowski and Alicja Wierzcholska, Pure and Applied Geophysics, Vol. 174, 2017)

"This book contains lectures given by leading scientists in the field of computational astrophysics during the 43rd Saas-Fee Advanced Course. ... The authors do an excellent job explaining their individual topics with enough depth to give a good overview, and at the same time avoiding unnecessary repetition between each other. ... The content of this book can be highly recommended to graduate students and researchers." (Sadegh Khochfar, The Observatory, Vol. 136 (1254), October, 2016)
