    Stellar Spectroscopy is the study of the spectra of starlight. Astrophysicists can use this effect to calculate the stellar rotation rate. For simplicity lets assume that the axis of rotation is . Why can only a lower limit to the rate of stellar rotation be determined from line broadening rather than the actual rotation rate? (Refer to Figure ). Reference.

    The chapter discusses photometry, spectroscopy, magnetic activity, heated regions of the atmospheres, and mass and angular momentum loss. Observing other stars provides a window into the behavior of solar-type stars with a wide range of masses, ages, rotation rates, and other stellar Author: Gibor Basri. ADS Classic is now deprecated. It will be completely retired in October Please redirect your searches to the new ADS modern form or the classic info can be found on our blog.

    This book, while not attempting to answer all questions about rotation, given that many issues still have to be further investigated, focuses on the basics and some particular aspects while aiming to show why it is important, from a physical point of view, to study stellar rotation. 'Understanding Stellar Evolution' is based on a series of graduate-level courses taught at the University of Washington since , and is written for physics and astronomy students and .

Understanding how stars rotate is central to modelling their structure, formation, and evolution and how they interact with their environment and companion stars.

This authoritative volume provides a lucid introduction to stellar rotation. The chapters in this book address the two groups of topics summarized as "Stellar Rotation and Associated Seismology" as well as "Stellar Convection and Associated Seismology".

The book Pages: Rotation induces instabilities which in turn induce mixing. The mixing leads to larger cores and longer lifetimes, and also modifies the nucleosynthesis. For the most massive stars, fast rotation. It combines theory and observation in a comprehensive survey of how the rotation of stars affects the structure and evolution of the Sun, single stars, and close binaries.
