Foundations of Radiation Hydrodynamics

  title={Foundations of Radiation Hydrodynamics},
  author={D. Mihalas and B. Mihalas and A. Fu and W. Arnett},
Exposes the great foundation-stones of research on radiating flows in astrophysics. Upon them are built the walls of methodology (some understandably incomplete). Concentration is on fundamentals but with only few applications. Coverage broadly involves non-radiating fluids, physics of radiation, radiation transport, and dynamics of radiating fluids, and finally the elements of sensor calculus as used in this volume. Contents, abridged: Microphysics of gases. Dynamics of ideal fluids… Expand
