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.

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.

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.

Investigations of the heating of the corona and the acceleration of the solar wind are two of the prime scientific goals in studying the solar upper atmosphere with the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) of ESA and NASA.
