As our nearest star, the Sun offers a unique opportunity to study stellar physics. Following the success of his previous books, Galaxies and The Stars, Roger Tayler presents the first fully integrated textbook on how studies of the Sun and the solar system help us understand stars in general and other planetary systems. Handy appendices give succinct derivations of relevant background theory, ensuring that this book is completely self contained. Altogether, this is an invaluable textbook for students studying the Sun, stars, the solar-terrestrial environment and the formation of planetary systems.
