Click on the cover image above to read some pages of this book! Essential Astrophysics is a book to learn or teach from, as well as a fundamental reference volume for anyone interested in astronomy and astrophysics. The mathematics required for understanding the text is on the level of simple algebra, for that is all that is needed to describe the fundamental principles. Essential Astrophysics goes beyond the typical textbook by including references to the seminal papers in the field, with further reference to recent applications, results, or specialised literature. Essential Astrophysics is a book to learn or teach from, as well as a fundamental reference volume for anyone interested in astronomy and astrophysics. The text is of sufficient breadth and depth to prepare the interested student for more advanced specialized courses in the future.

Essential Astrophysics goes beyond the typical textbook by including references to the seminal papers in the field, with further reference to recent applications, results, or specialized literature. It is a concrete, middle-level treatment that devotes as much attention to methods of research and observation as it does to results. Astronomical and physical constants and units as well as the most fundamental equations can be found in the appendix. The text is sufficiently comprehensive to be used as the principle textbook for a lecture course or for self-study. Here at last is a book in English which bridges the gap between elementary introductory accounts and advanced technical monographs.

This one-semester overview will be enjoyed by undergraduate students with an interest in the physical sciences, such as astronomy, chemistry, engineering or physics, as well as by any curious student interested in learning about our celestial science. It serves as a comprehensive introductory text, which takes the student through the field of astrophysics in Essential Astrophysics is a book to learn or teach from, as well as a fundamental reference volume for anyone interested in astronomy and astrophysics. All of the examples are solved with the rough accuracy needed to portray the basic result. Kenneth Lang is a world-renowned author on astrophysics.
