About this book

Based on lectures given at a CNRS summer school in France, The Environments of the Sun and the Stars covers many aspects of stellar environments (both observational and theoretical) and offers a broad overview of the field. More specifically, Part I of The Environments of the Sun and the Stars focuses on the Sun, the properties of the ejected plasma, of the solar wind and on space weather. The second part deals with tides in planetary systems and in binary stellar systems, as well as with interactions in massive binary stars as seen by interferometry. Finally the chapters of Part III discuss the environments of young or evolved stars, stellar winds, agnetic fields and disks. With its broad approach The Environments of the Sun and the Stars will provide advanced students as well as researchers with a good overview of the environments of the Sun and the stars.
