Inhaltsangabe: Before exploding as supernovae, luminous hot stars live out their lives of a few million years with prodigious outputs of radiation and stellar winds, dramatically affecting both their evolution and environments. This book offers a detailed introduction to the astrophysics of these massive stars and how they contribute to the evolution of galaxies and starburst phenomena. HII galaxies, their connection to starburst galaxies, and the contribution of starburst phenomena to galaxy evolution through superwinds, are thoroughly explored. The authors conclude with the wider cosmological implications, including Population III stars, Lyman break galaxies and gamma-ray bursts, for each of which massive stars are believed to play a crucial role. This book is ideal for graduate students and researchers in astrophysics interested in luminous hot stars and galaxy evolution.
Inhaltsangabe: Ideal for graduate students and researchers in astrophysics, this detailed 2008 introduction to luminous hot stars connects the astrophysics of massive stars with the extremes of galaxy evolution represented by starburst phenomena.
