The workings of a stellar evolution code

Ross Peter Church

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


Models of stellar clusters link the theoretical gravitational N-body problem to the study of real astrophysical systems. Such models require a description of the stars contained within the cluster. Stars are interesting objects in their own right, and the study of stellar evolution is important across astronomy, from the formation of exotic objects such as X-ray binaries and gamma-ray bursts to measuring the ages of galaxies.
