Editorial Reviews

'Good print, rich illustrations, and many 'hot' topics are priorities of this book, which can be recommended to all astrophysicists, needing a good overview in this subject area. It is very suitable for the young scientist who need an exhaustive introduction to current problems in solar physics. ' Space Science Reviews58:386 1991
