Alastair G. W. Cameron.
Stellar Evolution, Nuclear Astrophysics, and Nucleogenesis.
Dover. 1957

Harvard professor A. G. W. Cameron—who helped develop the Giant Impact Theory, a revolutionary concept concerning the formation of the moon—originally published this survey in a technical report of Canada's Chalk River Laboratories. Nuclear astrophysics has come of age in the decades since, during which the paper by Burbidge et al. was widely available while Cameron's study remained inaccessible. Long out of print and very hard to find, this remarkable work is now available in an affordable paperback edition for the very first time. Newly edited and retypeset by an expert in atomic physics, it provides a valuable resource to cosmologists, astrophysicists, and graduate students of nuclear astrophysics.
