Stellar Spectral Classification
Richard O. Gray & Christopher J. Corbally

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"It has been about twenty years since the last book on spectral classification appeared. During that time, astronomers have switched from photographic detectors to electronic ones, and several new classes of stars have been discovered. This volume provides both an overview of the field and very detailed notes on individual spectral types. It should be required reading for both the students and the instructor in any graduate-level course on stellar astronomy."--Michael Richmond, Rochester Institute of Technology

"Major advances in spectral classification, especially the addition of the L and T classes, make the appearance of this definitive book timely and important. Useful on many levels, this guide covers all the relevant topics, is logically organized, and is a valuable resource for the astronomical community."--Richard Pogge, Ohio State University

"Stellar Spectral Classification is central to many areas of astrophysics and will gain even more importance in the coming future. This timely book addresses a wide audience, from undergraduate students to professional astronomers."--Alain Jorissen, Free University of Brussels
