In Chap. 1 we looked forward to potential connections between high-energydensity physics and astrophysics. Some of these connections arise because one can produce in the laboratory circumstances that actually exist in astrophysics and can measure the propertiesof these systems. We have seen examples of this in the areas of equations of state, in Chap. 3, and opacities, in Chap. 6. Other connections arise because high-energy-density experiments can produce hydrodynamic or radiation hydrodynamic behavior under conditions that are relevant to astrophysical systems.
