About the Authors
  • Dynamic Sun presents a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the Sun, from its deep core to the outer corona, and the solar wind. The chapters are written by leading scientists in solar physics and deal with solar models and neutrinos, seismic Sun, rotation of the solar interior, helioseismic tomography, solar dynamo, spectro-polarimetry, solar photosphere and convection, dynamics and heating of the solar chromosphere,and solar transition region. With an introduction by eminent astrophysicist Eugene Parker, the twenty chapters are fully illustrated and have comprehensive reference lists.

    • An authoritative overview of developments in solar physics
    • Includes coverage of all the major topics
    • Each chapter written by an authority in the field

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...a landmark in solar physics publication. ...a remarkably comprehensive and nicely laid out book. The chapters are produced...by highly regarded experts in the field, and cover the solar interior, the solar atmosphere, the heliosphere and solar wind, as well as observational techniques, and theoretical modelling. ...[an] authoritative review of the state of our understanding of the Sun, given in such a way as to excite the reader with the wonder of this rapidly developing field. I congratulate Bhola Dwivedi on a job well done." The Observatory
