This book is a classic. Any astronomer working on stellar atmospheres or stellar spectra needs to have this book in his or her library. The sections on radiative transfer is excellent. However, I personnaly prefer the first edition of this book because the explanations and the derivations are clearer in that version.5/5(5).

Stars whose atmospheric structure depends in an observable way on the heavy element abundances are considered. Such stars have effective temperatures which do not exceed 8, K. The stellar temperature stratification is examined and a description of the gas and electron pressures is presented.

Aspects concerning the energy distribution in the continuum are explored, taking into account the Cited by: 2. Conspicuous examples of highly evolved population-II stars are horizontal-branch stars.

The characteristics of the atmospheric structure of A-type horizontal-branch stars are examined along with the observational quantities relevant to their study. An analysis is conducted of the three classical field horizontal-branch stars HDHDand HD Cited by: 2.

Menzel-Problems in Stellar Atmospheres and Envelopes M J Seaton-A new way to measure the departure from thermodynamic equilibrium in stellar atmospheres Zhong-Quan Qu, Long-Fei Hao, Xiao-Li Yan et al.-This content was downloaded from IP address on 28/ The stellar atmosphere is the outer region of the volume of a star, lying above the stellar core, radiation zone and convection zone.

Overview. The stellar atmosphere is divided into several regions of distinct character: The photosphere, which is the atmosphere's lowest and coolest layer, is normally its only visible part. Light escaping from the surface of the star stems from this region.

Abstract A review is presented of works devoted to the study of hydrodynamic motions of a fluid in spherical layers and their stability. The investigation of such flow with various values of physical parameters and various boundary conditions is of significant interest for problems of astro- and geophysics with respect to problems of global circulation in stellar envelopes and large scale flow.

The theory of stellar atmospheres is one of the most important branches of modern astrophysics. It is first of all a major tool for understanding all aspects of stars.

InCecilia Payne first applied the new science of quantum mechanics to the analysis of stellar spectra. Besides relating stellar spectral types to photospheric temperatures, Payne showed that stars - and hence most of the observable universe - are composed mostly of hydrogen.

Today, SSP scientists and other astronomers analyze spectra to measure chemical abundances and other physical. In the past two decades, scientists have made remarkable progress in understanding stars. This graduate-level textbook provides a systematic, self-contained and lucid introduction to the physical processes and fundamental equations underlying all aspects of stellar astrophysics.

The timely volume provides authoritative astronomical discussions as well as rigorous mathematical derivations and 5/5(1). An introduction to stellar interiors, not quite as in-depth as Kippenhahn & Weigert, but rather more gentle.

Abstract. In order to understand globular cluster H-R diagrams or to judge differences between stars in our galaxies and those in the Magellanic clouds or other galaxies it is essential not only to study stellar structure and evolution but also to understand the dependence of the atmospheric structure on g, T eff and Z so that the observed surface energy distribution can be used to determine Cited by: 2.
