The First Stars
by Simon C. O. Glover
Publisher: arXiv 2012
Number of pages: 72
The author discusses our current understanding of the physical processes involved in the formation of Population III stars. He shows how we can identify the mass scale of the first dark matter halos to host Population III star formation, and discusses how gas undergoes gravitational collapse within these halos, eventually reaching protostellar densities.

This book provides an introduction to the details of the structure, operation, and evolution of stars. It will be most useful to undergraduates in upper-level astronomy courses and graduate students taking Stellar Interiors or Stellar Atmospheres.

An introduction to the field of numerical hydrodynamics. It will give you some insight in what is involved in such calculations. Numerical hydrodynamics is used in many parts of astrophysics. The applications we consider in this exercise are stellar.

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.

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.
