9780521389969: The Classification of Stars

A comprehensive handbook on the tools, methods, and results of stellar taxonomy, this book describes modern methods of spectroscopic and photometric classification, and identifies particular families of stars, progressing from the hottest to the coolest. Within each category a description is given of the normal types and all the peculiar stars. The emphasis throughout is on the phenomenology of classification, rather than the underlying astrophysics.

Review:

"...a clear, authoritative account of the taxonomy of stars." Science and Technology Book News

"An excellent introduction to how astronomers are able to do stellar astronomy. The book is very well written and the diagrams and references make it a volume that will be referred to frequently by everyone interested in the problems of stellar classification." Choice

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 1990. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The classification of stars into their various types is one of the fundamental areas of astronomy. This book is a comprehensive handbook on the tools, methods and results of stellar taxonomy. Although this subject is firmly rooted in classical astronomy, vast improvements in observational techniques have transformed the subject and greatly broadened the wavelength regions available for study. The first six chapters describe modern methods of spectroscopic and photometric classification. The remaining nine chapters describe particular families of stars, progressing from the hottest to the coolest. Within each category a description is given of the normal type and all the peculiar stars. Throughout the emphasis is on the phenomenology of classification, rather than the underlying astrophysics. Both authors have devoted themselves to developing the international centre for stellar data at Strasbourg, which uniquely qualifies them to write this definitive handbook for professional astronomers.
