Mathematical Problems Of Radiative Equilibrium
by Eberhard Hopf
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1934
Number of pages: 123
Schwarzschild's classical work on absorption and diffusion in the sun's atmosphere, and the continuation of these investigations through A. Eddington, J.H. Jeans, R.A. Milne and others, have rendered the theory of radiative equilibrium a definite chapter of mathematical astrophysics. Besides the known results (theory of Milne's standard model, infinitely deep slab with no radiation incident on its surface) the reader will also find more or less detailed discussions of other models.

This course is a graduate-level introduction to gas dynamical processes in astrophysics. Its goal is to teach you the basic concepts and equations of gas dynamics and to illustrate the application of gas dynamics to astrophysics.
