Product Description


"It is an excellent guide for anyone interested in radiation transport and spectral analyses in astrophysics."--Claudia-Veronika Meister, Zentralblatt MATH

"A magisterial work that will surely be the definitive reference for many years to come."--Ian D. Howarth, The Observatory

From the Back Cover

"This eagerly anticipated book is an excellent guide for anyone interested in radiation transport in astrophysics, as well as for those wanting to make detailed analyses of astrophysical spectra. Comprehensive, lucid, and stimulating, Theory of Stellar Atmospheres is ideal for students and scientists alike."--Bengt Gustafsson, Uppsala University

"Theory of Stellar Atmospheres will become 'The Book' in this field, supplanting all others. Every serious student and researcher in astrophysics should own a copy. Hubeny and Mihalas constitute the dream team for this subject, having worked in the area for their entire careers and made fundamental and important contributions."--James M. Stone, Princeton University

"Theory of Stellar Atmospheres is the standard by which other books in the field will be judged."--Don Winget, University of Texas at Austin

"This is an impressive book. Hubeny and Mihalas review the statistical mechanics of matter and radiation; the absorption, emission, and scattering of radiation; and line broadening in the context of the non-equilibrium structure of a stellar atmosphere. They summarize the early fundamental work in the field, and give a detailed account of the methods needed to calculate and study stellar spectra."--Eugene H. Avrett, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

HASH(0x94d45f18) out of 5 stars The definitive monograph 13 Feb. 2015
By Ian Howarth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is THE definitive monograph in the field; a magisterial work of enormous authority and clarity. If you're a student at graduate level or beyond, working in stellar atmospheres, you simply must have this book to hand -- but then, you'll already know that. Like all research-level monographs, it's definitely not for those with only a casual interest in astronomy (the preface states "the reader should be familiar with the elements of quantum mechanics and special relativity"), but advanced amateur astronomers will enjoy the first two chapters, `Why study stellar atmospheres' and 'Observational foundations', both of which are very accessible and informative. (The first is downloadable as part of the inspection material freely available on the Princeton Press web site.)
