By Jean-Louis Tassoul
Realizing how stars rotate is imperative to modeling their constitution, formation and evolution, in addition to realizing how they have interaction with their surroundings and significant other stars. This lucid advent to stellar rotation combines thought and statement, and comprises all of the most modern advancements within the box. Jean-Louis Tassoul, a number one authority at the topic, comprehensively surveys how the rotation of stars impacts the constitution and evolution of the sunlight, unmarried stars, and shut binaries. This quantity will drastically curiosity graduate scholars and researchers learning sunlight and stellar rotation and shut binary platforms. it is going to additionally attract people with a extra basic curiosity in sunlight and stellar physics, famous person formation, binary stars, and the hydrodynamics of rotating fluids--including geophysicists, planetary scientists, and plasma physicists.
