Originally published in Book Description: Covering both radial and nonradial oscillations, this book includes not only a thorough treatment of the basic theory of stellar pulsation but also a comprehensive synthesis of the most recent work done in this area. Originally published in.

Important time scales considered include the pulsation period, the 'free-fall' time, the Kelvin time, and the 'nuclear' time. Some observational and basic theoretical considerations are discussed, taking into account classical Cepheids and the period-luminosity relation, more recently recognized types of variable stars, the empirical determination of radii of pulsating stars, limb darkening.

Today, stellar pulsation theory is used as an accurate tool to probe many different aspects of stellar physics in almost all evolutionary phases. Through the seismo logical potential of multimode pulsations they might play an important role in a possible renaissance of stellar astronomy in the by: 7.

Stellar Pulsation Theory. Book Editor(s): and basic equations of (radial) stellar pulsation. It provides details of the system of equations we need to solve in order to describe a pulsating star.

It is even possible to combine all of these equations into a single, partial differential equation, which however is of the fourth order in space.

In recent years, astronomers have witnessed major progresses in the field of stellar physics. This was made possible thanks to the combination of a solid theoretical understanding of the phenomena of stellar pulsations and the availability of a tremendous amount of exquisite space-based asteroseismic data.

[John P Cox] -- "Covering both radial and nonradial oscillations, this book includes not only a thorough treatment of the basic theory of stellar pulsation but also a comprehensive synthesis of the most recent work.

At many stages of their lives, stars exhibit variability due to pulsations or oscillations. These oscillations give us a window to ‘inside the star’, to infer its interior structure and composition, and to test the physics of stellar models. The calibration of stellar luminosity Price: $ The solutions of interest in stellar pulsation theory are the asymptotic solutions (as time tends towards infinity) because the time scale for the amplitude variations is generally very short compared to the evolution time scale of the star which is the nuclear burning time scale.
