Nuclear astrophysics is, in essence, a science that attempts to understand and explain the physical universe beyond the Earth by studying its smallest particles.Cauldrons in the Cosmos,by Claus E. Rolfs and William S. Rodney, serves as a basic introduction to these endeavors. From the major discoveries in the field to a discussion of the makeup of stars to an explanation of standard lab techniques, this text provides students and scientists alike a thorough and fascinating survey of the accomplishments, goals, and methods of nuclear astrophysics. A classic in its field,Cauldrons in the Cosmoswill surely remain an important reference in nuclear astrophysics for years to come.

A useful and long-awaited introduction to nuclear astrophysics."G. J. Mathews,Science
