The many tables included are expected to be useful for both purposes. The references are generally not included in the text except for historical purposes in an effort to improve readability. References are given at the end of each chapter together with sufficient text to describe their content.

Again, exceptions have been made for references of historical interest.Therefore some central stars, perhaps as many as 10%, will experience a helium shell flash. This has the effect of causing the envelope to expand and the effective temperature to be lowered. Thus the evolutionary path in the H-R diagram willanbsp;...
