TitleEvolution of stars and stellar populations
Author(s)Maurizio Salaris;Santi Cassisi
PublicationVerlag, John Wiley and Sons, 2005.
Abstract NoteEvolution of Stars and Stellar Populations is a comprehensive presentation of the theory of stellar evolution and its application to the study of stellar populations in galaxies. Taking a unique approach to the subject, this self-contained text introduces first the theory of stellar evolution in a clear and accessible manner, with particular emphasis placed on explaining the evolution with time of observable stellar properties, such as luminosities and surface chemical abundances. This is followed by a detailed presentation and discussion of a broad range of related techniques, that are widely applied by researchers in the field to investigate the formation and evolution of galaxies. This book will be invaluable for undergraduates and graduate students in astronomy and astrophysics, and will also be of interest to researchers working in the field of Galactic, extragalactic astronomy and cosmology.

TitleIntroduction to the evolution of single and binary stars
Author(s)Matthew Benacquista
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2013.
Descriptionxii, 262p.
Abstract NoteAn Introduction to the Evolution of Single and Binary Stars provides physicists with an understanding of binary and single star evolution, beginning with a background and introduction of basic astronomical concepts. Although a general treatment of stellar structure and evolution is included, the text stresses the physical processes that lead to stellar mass compact object binaries that may be sources of observable gravitational radiation. Basic concepts of astronomy, stellar structure and atmospheres, single star evolution, binary systems and mass transfer, compact objects, and dynamical systems are covered in the text. Readers will understand the astrophysics behind the populations of compact object binary systems and have sufficient background to delve deeper into specific areas of interest. In addition, derivations of important concepts and worked examples are included. No previous knowledge of astronomy is assumed, although a familiarity with undergraduate quantum mechanics, classical mechanics, and thermodynamics is beneficial.

TitleStellar evolution physics Vol. 1: Physical Processes in Stelar Interiors
Author(s)Icko Iben
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2013.
Descriptionxvi, 889
Abstract NoteThis text describes the microscopic physics operating in stars and demonstrates how stars respond from formation, through hydrogen-burning phases, up to the onset of helium burning. Intended for beginning graduate students and senior undergraduates with a solid background in physics, it illustrates the intricate interplay between the microscopic physical processes and the stars' macroscopic responses. The volume starts with the gravitationally contracting phase which carries the star from formation to the core hydrogen-burning main sequence, through the main sequence phase, through shell hydrogen-burning phases as a red giant, up to the onset of core helium burning. Particular emphasis is placed on describing the gravothermal responses of stars to nuclear transformations in the interior and energy loss from the surface, responses which express the very essence of stellar evolution. The volume is replete with many illustrations and detailed numerical solutions to prepare the reader to program and calculate evolutionary models.

TitleStellar evolution physics Vol. 2: Advanced Evolution of Single Stars
Author(s)Icko Iben
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2013.
Descriptionx, pp.893-1995
Abstract NoteThis volume explains the microscopic physics operating in stars in advanced stages of their evolution and describes with many numerical examples and illustrations how they respond to this microphysics. Models of low and intermediate mass are evolved through the core helium-burning phase, the asymptotic giant branch phase (alternating shell hydrogen and helium burning) and through the final cooling white dwarf phase. A massive model is carried from the core helium-burning phase through core and shell carbon-burning phases. Gravothermal responses to nuclear reaction-induced transformations and energy loss from the surface are described in detail. Written for senior graduate students and researchers who have mastered the principles of stellar evolution, as developed in the first volume of Stellar Evolution Physics, sufficient attention is paid to how numerical solutions are obtained to enable the reader to engage in model construction on a professional level.

TitleObserver's guide to stellar evolution: The Birth, Life and Death of Stars
Author(s)Michael Inglis
PublicationLondon, Springer-Verlag, 2003.
Descriptionxvii, 236p.
Series(Patrick Moore's Practical Astronomy Series)
Abstract NoteStellar evolution - the birth, development and death of stars - is central to our current understanding of astronomy. This area of astrophysics is often portrayed as being difficult and mathematical, but Mike Inglis brings it to life in a unique way, combining a step-by-step introduction with suggestions for making practical observations of stars at different stages in their evolution. Every amateur astronomer - regardless of their current level of knowledge - will find this book fascinating and informative.

TitleCan stars find peace?
Author(s)G. Srinivasan
PublicationHyderabad, Universities Press, 2011.
Descriptionxiii, 254p.
Abstract NoteWhat will happen to a star when its supply of nuclear energy is exhausted? Will it collapse to a point and disappear from this Universe? Or, is there a new twist to the story? In this book, the second volume of the series ‘The Present Revolution in Astronomy’ authored by G Srinivasan, the story of the life history of the stars is narrated in a lucid manner, with the necessary physics background developed in a systematic fashion. The first part deals with the great developments of the 1930s. This includes the great discovery by Chandrasekhar and the subsequent prediction of supernovae, neutron stars and black holes. The second part of the book is devoted to a discussion of the modern perspective of stellar evolution. I know of no other book on the evolution of stars of a similar scope and breadth that is so accessible for undergraduate students.

TitleLife of stars: Controversial inception and emergence of the theory of stellar structure
Author(s)Giora Shaviv
PublicationBerlin, Springer-Verlag, 2009.
Descriptionxiv, 504p.
Abstract NoteThis beautifully illustrated book describes the birth and evolution of the theory of stellar structure through the vehement controversy between biology (as presented by Darwin) and physics (as presented by Kelvin) about the age of the Earth, which culminated with Rutherford suggesting radioactive dating. Shaviv analyzes critically many proclaimed scientific results, showing how and why they were wrong, and explains why it took decades to find the now accepted scientific answers - where there are such - and why there remains much more to be done before we can say we fully understand what happens up there in the heavens. The Life of the Stars provides fascinating reading for all those interested in the stars, in the history of astronomy and in what their story tells us about how science progresses. Moreover, it will bring readers up-to-date on current problems in astrophysics.
