This course unit is one of the core units in the third year Bsc astronomy and astrophysics degree at the University of Nairobi. It addresses the important astrophysical subject of stellar evolution which describes how the observed physical properties of stars change during their lifetime- from birth to death. Stars constitute the basic building blocks of our Universe and the way in which they evolve over time- known as “stellar evolution”- forms a crucial link to our understanding of the structure and evolution of the cosmos.
