The first extended work of its kind, Stars as Laboratories for Fundamental Physics stands at the intersection of two burgeoning fields, astrophysics and particle physics. Georg Raffelt, one of the world's leading researchers in this field, describes what the study of stars reveals about fundamental particle interactions.

Raffelt presents the many uses of stellar astrophysics for research in basic particle physics. He focuses primarily on the properties and nongravitational interactions of elementary particles. Numerous graphs and figures complement the text.

Stars as Laboratories for Fundamental Physics is a valuable reference for cosmologists, astrophysicists, and particle physicists.
Georg G. Raffelt is a staff scientist in the Theory Group at the Max-Planck-Institute for Physics in Munich, and is a receiving editor for the journal Astroparticle Physics.
