This comprehensive overview of stellar astrophysical fluid dynamics includes properties of pulsating stars; helioseismology; convection and mixing in stellar interiors; and dynamics of stellar rotation, planet formation and the generation of stellar and planetary magnetic fields. Each chapter is written by a leading expert in the field and extensive references to technical literature are made.
