AN INTRODUCTION TO STELLAR ASTROPHYSICS LEBLANC PDF

Office hours: Mon, Fri am — am, other times by appointment Course Overview Stars are the fundamental building blocks of the Universe. They are the principal source of electromagnetic radiation at many wavelengths, including visible light. By injecting vast amounts of energy and momentum into their surroundings, they act as drivers for the evolution of their host galaxies. Likewise, through their creation of chemical elements heavier than hydrogen and helium, they are ultimately responsible for the existence of life as we know it. Stellar astrophysics — the study of the appearance, structure, composition, and evolution of stars — is one of the resounding successes of modern physics.

Stellar astrophysics — the study of the appearance, structure, composition, and evolution of stars — is one of the resounding successes of modern physics. It brings together elements from almost every sub-field of physics from atomic and nuclear physics, through to classical mechanics and relativity , allowing us to understand in surprising detail what goes on deep inside an object that, to us, is a mere pinprick of light in the sky. This course is aimed at junior or senior majors in Astronomy or a related area, and is divided into three main components: Stellar Observations: how do we quantify the basic parameters of stars position, distance, brightness, spectrum, etc?

Stellar Atmospheres: how does radiation interact with matter at the surfaces of stars, to produce the observables we measure? Stellar Interiors: what processes determine the interior structure, composition and evolution of stars? We will cover most, but not all, of the chapters in the book, and the bi-weekly assignments will be based mainly on the problems given at the end of each chapter.

Other books that will be occasionally referenced are as follows: Stellar Structure and Evolution, by R. Structure and Evolution of the Stars, by M. Stellar Atmospheres, by D. The standard reference text on stellar atmospheres and radiative transfer. The Internal Constitution of the Stars, by A. One of the easiest-to-read and most insightful books on stellar structure, by the father of modern astrophysics.

All of these books are on reserve in the Astronomy library, apart from the last which can be found in the Physics library. Software Apart from various simple cases, calculating stellar interior models requires a computer program. Unless a valid excuse is provided, late assignments will have a small number of points deducted. The assignments, as they are released, can be downloaded from this list:.

Main An Introduction to Stellar Astrophysics An Introduction to Stellar Astrophysics Francis LeBlanc An Introduction to Stellar Astrophysics aspires to provide the reader with an intermediate knowledge on stars whilst focusing mostly on the explanation of the functioning of stars by using basic physical concepts and observational results. Student-friendly features include:Detailed examples to help the reader better grasp the most important conceptsA list of exercises is given at the end of each chapter and answers to a selection of these are presented. Brief recalls of the most important physical concepts needed to properly understand stars. A summary for each chapterOptional and advanced sections are included which may be skipped without interfering with the flow of the core content.
