Description:
This book is aimed at first year graduate students or the very advanced undergraduates. I assume throughout that the readers have considerable factual knowledge of stars and astronomy. I shall attempt to describe the development of a nearly axiomatic theory of stellar structure that is consistent with what we know about stars. The terminal phases of stellar evolution are treated schematically.
