This text gives a complete and comprehensive treatment of the physics of the stellar interior and the underlying fundamental processes and parameters. The models developed to explain the stability, dynamics and evolution of the stars are presented, and great care is taken to detail the various stages in a star's life. The authors have written a unique text based on their own pioneering work in stellar modeling.
Since its publication, this textbook has come to be considered a classic by readers and teachers in astrophysics. This study edition is meant for students in astronomy and physics alike.

From the reviews
"... many excellent volumes on this subject have been written. In my opinion, this one is the best."
D.L. Faulkner in: Australian & New Zealand Physicist, 1995
"Will clearly be the standard text in the subject."
N.H. Baker, Columbia University
"Kippenhahn and Weigert's work compares favorably with the few similar works, many of which are now out of date. It is superior to some others in eschewing elegance of mathematical analysis in favor of a comprehensive understanding of the observed and deduced properties of stars, from their initial formation to their final collapse."
