**Neutrinos and the Stars**

by Georg Raffelt

**Publisher**: arXiv 2012**Number of pages**: 83

**Description**:

The role of neutrinos in stars is introduced for students with little prior astrophysical exposure. We begin with neutrinos as an energy-loss channel in ordinary stars and conversely, how stars provide information on neutrinos and possible other low-mass particles.
