This second edition has been updated and revised and contains contributions covering important developments in this field, and reflecting on interesting insights into classical vae. The book examines thermonuclear processes, the evolution of va systems, va atmospheres and winds, the evolution of dust and molecules in vae, va remnants and observations of vae in other galaxies. It includes observations across the electromagnetic spectrum, from radio to gamma rays, and discusses some of the most important outstanding problems in classical va research.
