About the Author

Francesca Matteucci is associate professor at the University of Trieste, Italy, where she teaches Stellar Physics. Her field of research is the chemical evolution of galaxies of different morphological type, supernova rates and supernova progenitors.


From the reviews:

"In order to evolve a galaxy, you must choose a mass of gas; decide on a prescription for turning it into stars ... . Matteucci's book explains ... how to do all these things, ending with a discussion of cosmic chemical evolution ... . anyone wanting to get up to speed quickly on the topic should find the book very useful. It is mercifully short and has lots of nice figures comparing models and data for abundance gradients, correlations of various elements, and so forth." (Virginia Trimble, The Observatory, Vol. 132 (1229), August, 2012)
