Description:
The virial theorem is extremely powerful in understanding problems of stellar astrophysics, but it is also poorly understood by many who study the subject. The author has not prepared here a complete and exhaustive discussion of the virial theorem; rather this effort should be viewed as a guided introduction, punctuated by a few examples.
