Entropy Production of Main-Sequence Stars

The entropy production (inside the volume bounded by a photosphere) of main-sequence stars is calculated based on B–V photometry data and the dependences of entropy production on temperature and luminosity are obtained for the first time.

Entropy Production of Stars

A non-linear inverse relationship of thermodynamic fluxes and forces as well as an almost constant specific entropy production of main-sequence stars (for 95% of stars, this quantity lies within 0.5 to 2.2 of the corresponding solar magnitude) is found.

Mass-luminosity relation for FGK main sequence stars: metallicity and age contributions

The stellar mass-luminosity relation (MLR) is one of the most famous empirical “laws”, discovered in the beginning of the 20th century. MLR is still used to estimate stellar masses for nearby stars,

Accurate fundamental parameters for lower main‐sequence stars

We derive an empirical effective temperature and bolometric luminosity calibration for G and K dwarfs, by applying our own implementation of the Infrared Flux Method to multiband photometry. Our

We present an analysis of the intrinsic colors and temperatures of 5–30 Myr old pre-main-sequence (pre-MS) stars using the F0- through M9-type members of nearby, negligibly reddened groups: the η Cha

Variational Principles for Stellar Structure

The four equations of stellar structure are reformulated as two alternate pairs of variational principles. Different thermodynamic representations lead to the same hydromechanical equations, but the
