Product Description


Review of the hardback: '… this new edition sustains the strengths of its predecessors while introducing new material, including (for the first time) exercises that enhance its usefulness as source material for lecture courses … Stellar Photospheres addresses spectrographs and detectors, the fundamentals of radiative transfer, the relevant microphysics, and continuum and line formation with a deftness that makes it accessible at undergraduate level, and with enough depth (and referencing to primary sources) to make it useful for the research scientist. Recommended to all with interest in these areas.' The Observatory

Book Description

Format: Paperback
I am a first year astronomy PhD student, and had just been to a telescope to take some spectral observations. Having no practical experience in this area, I needed some background information to get acquainted with the basics of spectrographs and spectral observations, to understand the images I had taken. I would thoroughly recommend this book, as it gives a very good overview of the area, and is at about 3rd year undergraduate level. The title did not immediately suggest its usefulness, but if you are observing spectra, you are looking at stellar photospheres.
