Book description

In the last throes of their lives, how do low- and high-mass stars interact with their immediate surroundings? How does the circumstellar medium affect the shape of a nebula? How are supernovae affected by a dense medium? And what do we understand of how stellar winds interact with their environments? These and many other exciting issues are addressed in these proceedings, from the 34th Herstmonceux conference, held in Cambridge. Highlights of developments in the field covered in this volume include the latest observational results that show how various types of stellar ejecta differ in shape, and a unified view of the physical processes involved; as well as the latest results on the media around supernovae 1987A and 1993J. This timely volume provides review articles that serve both as an excellent introduction for graduate students and a handy reference for researchers; and up-to-date research papers for those who want to keep abreast of developments in the field.

Reviews

‘The editors and publishers have done a good job in collating the contributions into a volume which is both attractive and, because of the quality and linkage of the review papers, of more than the usual ephemeral value … A worthy addition to any astronomy library.’
