    This book presents an elementary introduction to the fundamentals of hydrodynamics with an application to the study of stellar winds. The principles of hydrodynamics have many other applications, so that the book can be used as an introduction to hydrodynamics for students of physics, astrophysics and other related : Springer International Publishing.

    Stellar winds found this way are all far stronger than the solar wind, but the reader should be cautioned that this is an observational selection effect. The Sun's wind would be invisible at stellar distances. If all stars were like the Sun, we would presently have no way to directly detect their winds. The tenuous outer layers of stars can be driven off into space, creating the flows known as stellar winds. In main-sequence stars like the Sun, the winds are driven by thermal pressure in the hot stellar corona. The wind, being guided by the star’s magnetic field, is anisotropic. More massive stars and red giants propel gas by radiation pressure.

    springer, Introduces hydrodynamics to undergraduate students in physics and r winds are a common phenomenon in the life of stars, from the dwarfs like the Sun to the red giants and hot supergiants, constituting one of the basic aspects of modern astrophysics. Stellar winds are a hydrodynamic phenomenon in which circumstellar gases expand towards the interstellar medium. Volume 1: The global properties of stars and the observational techniques used to determine them are examined in an introduction for undergraduate students. Chapters are devoted to stellar positions, proper motions, brightness, color-magnitude diagrams, luminosities, angular radii, and effective temperatures. Also considered are stellar masses and radii, spectral classification, population II.

Summary The purpose of this chapter is to describe and explain some of the fundamental properties of the stellar wind models. This is done by deriving the equations for idealized simple winds. For these simple models the equation of motion can be solved easily so that the velocity and density structures of the wind are known.

Introduction to Stellar Winds - by Henny J. Lamers June Stars emit not only radiation but also particles. The emission of particles is called the stellar wind.

The two most important parameters regarding a stellar wind that can be derived from the observations are the mass loss rate Ṁ, which is the amount of mass lost by the star per unit time, and the terminal velocity v.
