Description

This Symposium on fundamental stellar properties was held to honour Emeritus Professor Robert Hanbury Brown on the occasion of his 80th birthday. The speakers described current advances in interferometry, astrometry, spectroscopy and in theoretical models of stellar atmospheres and interiors. The emphasis was on the critical assessment of the quality, accuracy, and prospects for improvement of the observational data and theoretical models, on the outstanding problems in stellar astrophysics, and on the feasibility of achieving the observational and theoretical advances required for their solution. These proceedings should be of interest to researchers and graduate students in all fields of astrophysics.

Contents

Stellar distances; stellar angular diameters and radii; stellar flux distributions; stellar masses and surface gravities; the stellar effective temperature scale; stellar abundances; stellar atmospheres; stellar oscillations and pulsations; stellar models versus observations; stellar interiors; evolved stars; stellar chemical evolution; stellar ages.
