NEW BOOK: From Dust to Stars
Studies of the Formation and Early Evolution of Stars
Keywords: STAR FORMATION - INTERSTELLAR CLOUDS - EARLY STELLAR EVOLUTION
- YOUNG STELLAR OBJECTS - HIGH ENERGY PROCESSES

From Dust to Stars introduces the world of dense cloud cores, stellar
nurseries, the lives of young stellar objects, and their interaction with the
interstellar medium as it is known today. The book describes the
complex physical processes involved in both the creation of stars and
during their young lives. It illustrates how these processes reveal
themselves from radio wavelengths to high energy X-rays, with special
reference toward high energy signatures. A discussion of key analytical
techniques demonstrates how modern research in this area is pursued.

From Dust to Stars describes
    basic research, observations and analytical techniques
    recent advances in the theory of star formation
    the many remaining fundamental problems faced by researchers
This book focusses entirely on the formation and evolution of stars, and
will be an essential resource for students, researchers, and professionals
studying star formation and evolution.
