The development of a dynamical instability in the star causes its transition to a compact state (neutron star or black hole), may sometimes be accompanied by a supernova explosion, and represents the end of its nuclear evolution. Development of thermal instability does not necessarily lead to such a catastrophic result. Some displays of the thermal instability have been considered in Sects. 9.3 and 10.2.
