Stellar dynamics is the branch of astrophysics which describes in a statistical way the collective motions of stars subject to their mutual essential difference from celestial mechanics is that each star contributes more or less equally to the total gravitational field, whereas in celestial mechanics the pull of a massive body dominates any satellite orbits.

This edition includes two papers by the author that were published after Principles of Stellar Dynamics and that have been studied and quoted extensively: "New Methods in Stellar Dynamics" (originally published in the Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences) and "Dynamical Friction" (originally published in The Astrophysical Journal).Author: S.

This comprehensive textbook, first published inintroduces the necessary fluid dynamics to understand a wide range of astronomical phenomena, from stellar structures to supernovae blast waves, to accretion discs/5.

Principles of Stellar Evolution and Nucleosynthesis by Clayton, Donald D. and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at This book by a Nobel Laureate provides the foundation for analysis of stellar atmospheres, planetary illumination, and sky radiation.

Radiation transfer has been investigated as a phenomenon of astrophysics, and it has attained wider interest because of similar problems in the theory of neutron diffusion.

The first, on dynamical friction and Brownian motion, includes papers written after Chandrasekhar published his monograph Principles of Stellar Dynamics. Also in this section is "Stochastic Problems in Physics and Astronomy," one of the most cited papers in the physics literature, as well as papers written jointly with John von Neumann.

Chandrasekhar’s () book Principles of Stellar Dynamics is not as well-known or as mag-isterial as some of his others. The work on dynamical friction and dynamics of star clusters has proved to be of long-lasting value (see e.g., Heggie’s article in this issue).

However, much of the book reads oddly today. The interpretation of recent observations of bow shocks around O-stars and the creation of corresponding models require a detailed understanding of the associated (magneto-)hydrodynamic structures.

Dedicated to the great theorist S. Chandrasekhar, the book consists of ten well-written chapters that cover the essential tools of theoretical astrophysics.

The first half of the volume is concerned with the theory of how stars work (structure, stability, rotation, magnetism, dynamics. Since it was first published inGalactic Dynamics has become the most widely used advanced textbook on the structure and dynamics of galaxies and one of the most cited references in astrophysics.
