Hydrodynamics and Stellar Winds : An Introduction, Paperback / softback Book

Hydrodynamics and Stellar Winds : An Introduction Paperback / softback

Part of the Undergraduate Lecture Notes in Physics series


Introduces hydrodynamics to undergraduate students in physics and astrophysics. Stellar winds are a common phenomenon in the life of stars, from the dwarfs like the Sun to the red giants and hot supergiants, constituting one of the basic aspects of modern astrophysics.

Stellar winds are a hydrodynamic phenomenon in which circumstellar gases expand towards the interstellar medium.

This book presents an elementary introduction to the fundamentals of hydrodynamics with an application to the study of stellar winds.

The principles of hydrodynamics have many other applications, so that the book can be used as an introduction to hydrodynamics for students of physics, astrophysics and other related areas.
