The T Tauri stars

Exploiting the Infrared
Part of the Lecture Notes in Physics book series (LNP, volume 291)


The T Tauri stars have always been somewhat mysterious, displaying a bewildering variety of spectral peculiarities and variability. They are relatively faint, yet demand the highest quality observations to help unravel their puzzles. In the last few years they have been studied with a new level of detail and in a developing context of star formation theory. This has begun to clarify the reasons behind their many interesting characteristics. A coherent picture is emerging, although many major problems are yet unsolved. I try to summarize the results of many new and old observations and. theoretical viewpoints into a current cohesive overview of this exciting area.
