The book is written for graduate students as well as professionals in astronomy and astrophysics. Star clusters are at the heart of astronomy, being key objects for our understanding of stellar evolution and galactic structure. The origins, evolution and fates of the various stars and star clusters in the Galaxy are surveyed. The structure and composition of the Galaxy is discussed, and the Hyades cluster is presented as a model for other star clusters located further from the by: 6. This book focuses on understanding the stellar populations of massive star clusters and aims to investigate the origin, evolution and properties of binary systems, their collision products, as well as the general characteristics (e.g. ages, metal content) of stellar population(s) in star : Springer Singapore.   Evolution of Stars and Stellar Populations is a comprehensive presentation of the theory of stellar evolution and its application to the study of stellar populations in galaxies. Taking a unique approach to the subject, this self-contained text introduces first the theory of stellar evolution in a clear and accessible manner, with particular emphasis placed on explaining the evolution with time of observable stellar .

of young stellar clusters from X-ray to millimeter wave-lengths. But while much of the recent work has concentrated on the stellar initial mass function (IMF) or protoplanetary disk evolution (e.g., Lada and Lada, ), less attention has been directed to discerning the structure of young em-bedded clusters, and the evolution of that structure. Observation of stellar evolution: Star clusters I Stars tend to form in clusters at about the same age (within 1 2 Myr of each other) and are nearly the same distance from us. I H-R color-magnitude diagrams for stars in the cluster make it very easy to infer the stars’ location on the main sequence. This interdisciplinary volume presents results from state-of-the-art models and observations aimed at studying the impact of binaries on stellar evolution in resolved and unresolved populations. Serving as a bridge between observational and theoretical astronomy, it is a comprehensive review for researchers and advanced students of astrophysics.   Star Clusters Hold Secrets to Stellar Evolution This two-colour image shows an overview of the full Small Magellanic Cloud.

Salaris and Cassisi, (SC) (recommended: late evolution stages and observations and theory of clusters) “Evolution of Stars and Stellar Populations”. Star clusters offer astronomers a very effective way of studying the effects of stellar evolution. A star cluster is group of stars that were formed at the same time and from the same cloud of gas and dust. All stars in a cluster are therefore of nearly the same age and composition. Much Still Under Development. Stellar Clusters are very useful laboratories for empirically studying stellar evolution. This is because: All cluster stars are at the same distance. All cluster stars have the same physical age. As the cluster ages, different phases of stellar evolution are represented. A schematic representation of this is. Astronomy By Andrew Fraknoi, David Morrison And Sidney C Wolff. The book starts with relevant scientific fundamentals and progresses through an exploration of the solar system, stars, galaxies and cosmology. Also builds student understanding through the use of relevant analogies, clear and non-technical explanations, and rich illustrations.
