This text, designed for beginning students of stellar physics, introduces the fundamentals of stellar structure and evolution. In emphasizing the general picture of the life cycles of stars and the physics responsible, it also allows prospective specialists a taste of many of the detailed aspects of this mature discipline. The authors develop a solid foundation in important theory that is often overlooked in typical courses, yet steer clear of extraneous intensive mathematics and physics. Topics include nuclear physics and stellar energy sources, the equation of state of stellar material, phenomenological approaches to convection, and modern numerical techniques for computation of stellar evolution. Keeping pace with recent developments, the authors incorporate important elements such as asteroseismology, and the effects of rotation and magnetic fields.

From the reviews "Besides being well-written, it presents some fresh perspectives ... Well designed to be a textbook in a senior-level course both for students interested in astronomy and space, planetary and Earth sciences, and for students seeking to consolidate their understanding by using it in a broad set of applications. It can also provide a readable introduction to the subject for scientists working in related areas... The book comes with a PC diskette containing two FORTRAN programs (on stellar evolution). This is now my favorite book to use in a senior-level course." PHYSICS TODAY
