Stellar Structure and Evolution – Rudolf Kippenhahn, Alfred Weigert – Google Books

This long-awaited second edition kipenhahn the classical textbook on Stellar Structure and Evolution by Kippenhahn and Weigert is a thoroughly revised version of the original text. Taking into account modern observational constraints as well as additional physical effects such as mass loss and diffusion, Achim Weiss and Rudolf Kippenhahn have succeeded in bringing the book up to the state-of-the-art with respect to both the presentation of stellar physics and the presentation and interpretation of current sophisticated stellar models.

Stellar Structure And Evolution Kippenhahn, Weigert

The book provides a comprehensive treatment of the physics of the stellar interior and the underlying fundamental processes and parameters.

Just as the first edition, which remained a standard work for more than 20 years after its first publication, the second edition will be of lasting value not only for students but also for active researchers in astronomy and astrophysics. Rudolf Kippenhahn is author of very successful academic astronomy books as well of a large number of best-selling popular science books on astronomy, atomic physics and cryptology.

He has received several medals and awards including the Eddington medal by the Royal Astronomical Society and the Karl-Schwarzschild medal of the Astronomische Gesellschaft.

Alfred Weigert was professor for astrophysics at the University of Hamburg, Germany. His research forcussed on the simulation of stellar evolution and on the solution of the set of equations describing the structure of stars.

Stellar Structure and Evolution : Rudolf Kippenhahn :

He was not only Rudolf Kippenhahn’s co-author of the first edition of Stellar Structure and Evolution, but also author with Heinrich J. Wendker of the successful German introductory textbook “Astronomie und Astrophysik”.


He died in Weiss’ research interests are on stellar evolution of low- and intermediate mass stars, population synthesis and AGB- and post-AGB evolution. Part I The Basic Equations. Transport of Energy by Radiation and Conduction.

Stability Against Local, Non-spherical Perturbations. Transport of Energy by Convection. The Differential Equations of Stellar Evolution.

Existence and Uniqueness of Solutions. The Ideal Gas with Radiation. The Degenerate Electron Gas.

The Equation of State of Stellar Matter. From the reviews ” In my opinion, this one is the best. 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.
