White Dwarf Atmospheres and Circumstellar Environments by Donald W. Hoard

By Donald W. Hoard

Written by means of chosen astronomers on the vanguard in their fields, this well timed and novel e-book compiles the newest effects from learn on white dwarf stars, complementing current literature by way of targeting attention-grabbing new advancements in our realizing of the atmospheric and circumstellar environments of those stellar remnants. whole with an intensive refresher at the observational features and actual foundation for white dwarf category, it is a must-have source for researchers attracted to the past due levels of stellar evolution, circumstellar airborne dirt and dust and nebulae, and the way forward for our personal sunlight approach.
