Fundamental Concepts and Stellar Equilibrium is the first of two volumes, and can be read, as can 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.

"The present volume, with its detailed discussion of physical processes in stars and with sections on the mathematical methods used in evolutionary calculations, is of interest to physicists in general and to specialists in numerical mathematics, even if they are not themselves involved with stellar evolution. (...) The experienced worker will be glad to find collected in one volume a very high density of formulae that are immediately applicable to realistic models of stars (...).
