Description

Foundations of Astrophysics provides a contemporary and complete introduction to astrophysics for astronomy and physics majors. This text is briefer and more accessible than other texts in the market, and is the most up-to-date book available in this fast-changing field. With a logical presentation and conceptual and quantitative end-of-chapter problems, the material is easier-to-grasp for introductory astrophysics students.

CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
