Stars and Stellar Populations

  • Paul Hodge
Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 176)


Many of the previous chapters have dealt with stars of various kinds and with the mix of stars and interstellar material that makes up the stellar population of M31. This chapter looks at the remaining aspects of these subjects: ordinary stars in Andromeda and what they tell us about the population of stars in the galaxy.
