Introduces hydrodynamics to undergraduate students in physics and astrophysics. Stellar 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. 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 areas.Springer, New York (2004) (A comprehensive collection of articles by experts on all aspects of the physics of AGB stars) Holzer ... containing the equations of isothermal winds and energy transfer) Iping, R.C., Sonneborn, G.: FUSE observations of mass loss in planetary nebulae. ...
