This book provides an in-depth and self-contained treatment of the latest advances achieved in quantitative spectroscopic analyses of the observable outer layers of stars and similar objects. Written by two leading researchers in the field, it presents a comprehensive account of both the physical foundations and numerical methods of such analyses. The book is ideal for astronomers who want to acquire deeper insight into the physical foundations of the theory of stellar atmospheres, or who want to learn about modern computational techniques for treating radiative transfer in non-equilibrium situations. It can also serve as a rigorous yet accessible introduction to the discipline for graduate students. Provides a comprehensive, up-to-date account of the field Covers computational methods as well as the underlying physics Serves as an ideal reference book for researchers and a rigorous yet accessible textbook for graduate students An online illustration package is available to professors at press.princeton.edu

"This eagerly anticipated book is an excellent guide for anyone interested in radiation transport in astrophysics, as well as for those wanting to make detailed analyses of astrophysical spectra. Comprehensive, lucid, and stimulating, "Theory of Stellar Atmospheres" is ideal for students and scientists alike."--Bengt Gustafsson, Uppsala University ""Theory of Stellar Atmospheres" will become 'The Book' in this field, supplanting all others. Every serious student and researcher in astrophysics should own a copy. Hubeny and Mihalas constitute the dream team for this subject, having worked in the area for their entire careers and made fundamental and important contributions."--James M. Stone, Princeton University ""Theory of Stellar Atmospheres" is the standard by which other books in the field will be judged."--Don Winget, University of Texas at Austin "This is an impressive book. Hubeny and Mihalas review the statistical mechanics of matter and radiation; the absorption, emission, and scattering of radiation; and line broadening in the context of the non-equilibrium structure of a stellar atmosphere. They summarize the early fundamental work in the field, and give a detailed account of the methods needed to calculate and study stellar spectra."--Eugene H. Avrett, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

The 1996 Summer School of the European Astrophysical Doctoral Network dealt with the atmospheres of stars, the various theories that describe their structure and the interactions with the interior of the stars as well as with the interstellar environment, and the observations that support, modify and sometimes contradict these theories. This volume aims to provide the reader with an insight into problems related to stellar atmospheres both for cool and for hot stars. Furthermore it offers opportunities to deal with modern technologies in analysing observational data versus theoretical modelling.
