[Maurizio Salaris; Santi Cassisi] -- Evolution of Stars and Stellar Populations is a comprehensive presentation of the theory of stellar evolution and its application to the study of stellar populations in galaxies. Taking a unique. Abstract Stellar populations encode the star-formation history and chemical evolution of a system. This chapter reviews the development of the concept of stellar populations and the current understanding of the resolved stellar populations in the Local Group, with an emphasis on the older stars and serves to introduce the topics of several later chapters.

    Buy Evolution of Stars and Stellar Populations (): NHBS - Maurizio Salaris and Santi Cassisi, John Wiley & Sons.   Read "Old Stellar Populations How to Study the Fossil Record of Galaxy Formation" by Santi Cassisi available from Rakuten Kobo. The book discusses the theoretical path to decoding the information gathered from observations of old stellar systems. I Brand: Wiley.

    Remember also that the stellar census does not include dark matter. The total mass of the galaxy is about 5 × 10 11 solar masses, most of it lying far beyond the visible halo and disk. Adding the stellar mass of the three populations, they only account for about 15% of the mass of the galaxy. The bulk of the galaxy is composed of enigmatic.

The material covered includes the initial mass function and star formation histories; the chemical history of galaxies, and their observed evolution as a function of redshift; stellar kinematics; and modelling of synthetic populations. The book is a valuable analysis of the role of stellar populations in determining galactic structure and evolution.

"Stellar Populations"(IAU Symposium No. ) is very suited to physics/astronomy -oriented people at the upper undergraduate level, or above. But the real barriers to understanding this book for physics-oriented non-astronomers and for advanced-level amateur astronomers, are:5/5(1).

Evolution of Stars and Stellar Populations is a comprehensive presentation of the theory of stellar evolution and its application to the study of stellar populations in galaxies.

First in our own Galaxy; secondly from nearby galaxies where stars can still be resolved; and thirdly in remote galaxies in which the stellar population can only be studied in integrated.

He has authored about scientific papers, of them in peer-reviewed journals, and a monograph. The expansion (or contraction) of the universe can be accounted for by redefining the radial coordinate ras r≡Rt − being dimensionless – and the curvature Kas Kt ≡k/Rt 2. The constant kand coordinate are. Today, we know much more about stellar evolution than astronomers did in the s, and we can determine the ages of stars.

Population I includes stars with a wide range of ages. While some are as old as 10 billion years, others are still forming today. For example, the Sun, which is about 5 billion years old, is a population I star.

The concept of Stellar Populations has played a fundamental role in astronomy in the last few decades. It was introduced by Walter Baade after he was able to resolve the Andromeda Nebula and its companions into stars when he used red-sensitive plates and realised that there were two fundamentally.

The book discusses the theoretical path to decoding the information gathered from observations of old stellar systems. It focuses on old stellar systems because these are the fossil record of galaxy formation and provide invaluable information ont he evolution of cosmic structures and the universe as a whole.

This textbook is meant to illustrate the specific role played by stellar population diagnostics in our attempt to understand galaxy formation and evolution. The book starts with a rather unconventional summary of the results of stellar evolution theory (Chapter 1), as they provide the basis for the construction of synthetic stellar by: The concept of Stellar Populations has played a fundamental role in astronomy in the last few decades.

Line equivalent widths or indices are compared to old stellar population models created with the code of Mollá and García-Vargas (); hereafter MGV to obtain an age and a metallicity.

I give an introduction to the field of stellar populations in galaxies, and highlight some new results. Since the title of the Winter School is Secular Evolution in Galaxies I mostly concentrate on nearby galaxies, which are best suited to study this theme.
