by F. Thielemann, R. Hirschi, M. Liebendorfer, R. Diehl
Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 81
The authors focus on the astrophysical aspects, i.e. a description of the evolution of massive stars and their endpoints, with a special emphasis on the composition of their ejecta (in form of stellar winds during the evolution or of explosive ejecta).

The virial theorem is extremely powerful in understanding problems of stellar astrophysics, but it is also poorly understood by many who study the subject. This book should be viewed as a guided introduction, punctuated by a few examples.
by J. B. Tatum
A course on stellar atmospheres: radiation theory, blackbody radiation, flux, specific intensity and other astrophysical terms, absorption, scattering, extinction, the equation of transfer, limb darkening, atomic spectroscopy, and more.
by George Gamow - Dover Publications
In this fascinating book, a renowned physicist outlines the theories that illuminate the evolution of our world. Gamow employs language that's both scientifically accurate and easy to understand as he traces the development of atomic theory.
