This long-awaited graduate textbook, written by two pioneers in the field, provides a comprehensive introduction to the observations, theories, and consequences of stellar winds. The rates of mass loss and the wind velocities are explained from basic physical principles. This textbook also includes chapters clearly explaining the formation and evolution of interstellar bubbles and the effects of mass loss on the evolution of high- and low-mass stars. Each topic is introduced simply to explain the basic processes and then developed to provide a solid foundation for understanding current research. This authoritative textbook is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and researchers seeking an understanding of stellar winds and, more generally, supersonic flows from astrophysical objects. It is based on courses taught in Europe and the United States over the past twenty years and includes seventy problems for coursework or self-study.

This lucid and authoritative textbook is designed for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and researchers. It is based on courses taught in Europe and the US over the past 20 years and includes 70 problems for coursework or self-study.

Review:

"This is an enlightening book, full of vivid physics. It fills a longstanding gap in the astrophysical literature and will stand as the foundation of the rapidly growing field of stellar winds." Professor Norbert Langer, University of Potsdam

"Stellar winds are ubiquitous, but their properties and mechanisms span an enormous range. This badly needed book by two well known researchers brings together theory and observation to provide an excellent, integrated treatment of a fascinating subject." Professor Hollis R. Johnson, Indiana University

"...for those interested in a deeper theoretical understanding of stellar winds, the book is certainly to be recommended." Meteoritics & Planetary Science
