Star Formation, Hardback Book


'Krumholz has a strong writing style, didactic to be sure, but also fairly conversational within the limits of the material.

While hardly casual reading, this text would be a good resource for a stellar astrophysicist, or any individual seeking to become one.'CHOICEThis book provides a modern introduction to the study of star formation, at a level suitable for graduate students or advanced undergraduates in astrophysics.

The first third of the book provides a review of the observational phenomenology and then the basic physical processes that are important for star formation.

The remainder then discusses the major observational results and theoretical models for star formation on scales from galactic down to planetary.

The book includes recommendations for complementary reading from the research literature, as well as five problem sets with solutions.
