Instabilities in Stellar Evolution

Conference paper

In the following I first give a brief review of stellar evolution, and I then pick out situations in which the whole star or a part of it becomes unstable. As it occurs at present the process of star formation in our galaxy appears to be a process by which the system (our galaxy), out of irregular motion forms a very regular pattern and therefore seems to belong to these phenomena which are covered by synergetics.
