About the Authors
  • All phases of stellar evolution are influenced by the presence of magnetic fields in the star's interior and close environment. IAU Symposium 302 gives an overview of the emerging field of stellar magnetism. The last few years have seen the dawn of a new era in this research domain, with the advent of powerful tools strengthening both observational and modelling approaches, rapidly changing our view of the role stellar magnetism plays throughout stellar evolution. The topics covered span all phases of evolution, from the formation of stars and their early accreting years, through main sequence evolution for both low and high mass stars, and also the final stages of stellar evolution. This volume features the most recent advances achieved by major observatories (ground-based and space-borne) and through massively-parallel 3D numerical simulations, benefiting astronomers interested in the latest observational and theoretical developments in this exciting and growing field.

    • Provides a thorough synthesis reviewing the impact of magnetic fields in stellar physics
    • Covers a broad overview of stellar magnetism in stars of all masses and all ages, as well as the impact of stellar magnetism on orbiting planets
    • Combines expertise from a broad range of research areas, and looks forward to upcoming challenges and opportunities
