Prerequisite(s): 
PHYS 632 Astrophysics
Instructor(s): 
Stanley Owocki

Introduction to the physics of stellar interiors and atmospheres. The evolution of stars is explored by studying the changes in internal composition due to nuclear reactions. The physical processes underlying stellar spectra are investigated. Computer simulations of stars and their atmospheres may be used.
