Advances in Stellar Evolution

An understanding of how stars evolve is central to astrophysics. The basic theory is well established. However, the subject has undergone a renaissance in recent years as supercomputers have allowed complex evolutionary models to be developed and compared in great detail with observations from the new generation of telescopes. This timely volume presents the review articles from an international meeting in Elba, Italy, to review how our understanding of stellar evolution has advanced. The book also emphasises the critical role stars have on our understanding of how galaxies evolve. In this book we are provided with both the fundamentals and current research. In this way, it will be an invaluable supplement for graduate students, and a timely review for researchers.
