This long-awaited graduate textbook, written by means of pioneers within the box, offers a accomplished advent to the observations, theories, and effects of stellar winds. The premiums of mass loss and the wind velocities are defined from uncomplicated actual rules. This textbook additionally comprises chapters essentially explaining the formation and evolution of interstellar bubbles and the consequences of mass loss at the evolution of excessive- and low-mass stars. each one subject is brought just to clarify the elemental procedures after which constructed to supply an outstanding starting place for knowing present study. This authoritative textbook is designed for complicated undergraduate and graduate scholars and researchers looking an figuring out of stellar winds and, extra mostly, supersonic flows from astrophysical items. it truly is in response to classes taught in Europe and the us during the last 20 years and contains seventy difficulties for coursework or self-study.
