About the Authors
  • The papers contained in this volume arise from the 34th Herstmonceux conference, held in Cambridge, U.K., which addressed in particular the behavior of matter surrounding stars in the later stages of evolution. Highlights include the latest observational results that show how various types of stellar ejecta differ in shape, and a unified view of the physical processes involved; as well as the latest results on the media around Supernovae 1987a and 1993j. Other topics include late stages of evolution of low and high mass stars; physics of stellar winds; morphology of nebulae around stars; binary stars and bipolar nebulae; collimated flows and condensations; novae and supernovae revealing previous ejecta; and supernovae occurring in dense media. This timely volume will serve both as an excellent introduction for graduate students and a reference for researchers who want to keep abreast of developments in the field.

    • Presents the latest results on how different types of stellar ejecta vary in shape, and the underlying physics that unites them
    • Up-to-date results on the media around supernovae 1987A and 1993J

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The editors and publishers have done a good job in collating the contributions into a volume which is both attractive and, because of the quality and linkage of the review papers, of more than the usual ephemeral value … A worthy addition to any astronomy library.' The Observatory
