Summary "This book is a comprehensive short textbook about stars, their formation, their evolution and their death. It includes a thorough study of single stars, of interactive binary stars, of the formation of elements in stars and of the evolution of galaxies. The most interesting observations are described, then illustrated with beautiful and sometimes spectacular images. The theory is explained in simple terms, but it includes some mathematical or physical developments when they are considered necessary for a good understanding of the phenomena."--Provided by publisher.
Subject Stars -- Evolution.
