Promotional Information

The first comprehensive review and synthesis of current understanding of magnetic fields in the Sun and similar stars.


From the hardback review: '... a valuable summary of our understanding of solar physics and its offspring astrophysics ... The book will be enjoyed by many.' Irish Astronomical Journal From the hardback review: '... it is an extremely useful reference for researchers and graduate students working in this field ... This is, I believe, a very timely book that will be read by both solar and stellar astronomers. As observations of the magnetic fields of other stars have improved, it has become apparent that the solar paradigm, is not always appropriate. A comprehensive review such as this will hopefully inform advances in the fields of both solar and stellar magnetic activity.' Moira Jardine, The Observatory From the hardback review: 'The result is an illuminating and comprehensive view of stellar magnetic activity.' Europe & Astronomy From the hardback review: '... a splendid book that reviews our current understanding of many key topics in solar and stellar activity ... the strength of the book lies in the clear overview it provides of activity both on the Sun and on other stars, from an observer's viewpoint ... highly recommended.' Eric R. Priest, Physics Today From the hardback review: 'Students must read it, professionals must use it for reference.' Michael Stix, Solar Physics
