The Fundamentals of Stellar Astrophysics
by George W. Collins, II
Publisher: W H Freeman & Co 2003
Number of pages: 494
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.

This book provides an introduction to the details of the structure, operation, and evolution of stars. It will be most useful to undergraduates in upper-level astronomy courses and graduate students taking Stellar Interiors or Stellar Atmospheres.
A supernova is a stellar explosion that briefly outshines an entire galaxy, radiating as much energy as the Sun or any ordinary star is expected to emit over its entire life span, before fading from view over several weeks or months.

An introduction to the field of numerical hydrodynamics. It will give you some insight in what is involved in such calculations. Numerical hydrodynamics is used in many parts of astrophysics. The applications we consider in this exercise are stellar.

A course on stellar atmospheres: radiation theory, blackbody radiation, flux, specific intensity and other astrophysical terms, absorption, scattering, extinction, the equation of transfer, limb darkening, atomic spectroscopy, and more.
