The make-up of stars

Asplund, Martin


The chemical composition of stars contain vital clues not only about the stars themselves but also about the conditions prevailing before their births. As such, stellar spectroscopy plays a key role in contemporary astrophysics and cosmology by probing cosmic, galactic, stellar and planetary evolution. In this review I will describe the theoretical foundations of quantitative stellar spectroscopy: stellar atmosphere models and spectral line formation. I will focus mainly on more recent advances...[Show more]
