Stellar Magnetism

Leon Mestel

International Series of Monographs on Physics

Stellar magnetism is the branch of astrophysics concerned with the magnetic fields of stars, from the familiar variations in the Sun's field which coincide with the sun-spot cycle, to the enormous magnetic fields emitted by rotating neutron stars. The field is developing rapidly, and this book by one of its leading figures provides a thorough and carefully developed acount, placing recent work in a broad astronomical context.
