Stellar Structure and Evolution

ASTR 231
Fall 2009 not offered
Crosslisting: ASTR 531
Course Cluster: Planetary Science

Most of the visible matter in the galaxy is in the form of stars. It is important, therefore, to understand their structure and their evolution. Fortunately, we have a fairly well-developed and tested theory of stellar structure covering both their interiors and atmospheres. In this course, we will provide an introduction to that theory and examine its key results, including a basic description of how stars evolve.
