About this series
The Saas-Fee Advanced Courses, organized by the Swiss Scoiety for Astrophysics and Astronomy (SSAA), have been held annually since 1971. The courses cover important and timely fields of Astrophysics and Astronomy including related fields like computational methods. They are given by two to four reputable researchers in those fields. Each lecturer covers a different aspect of the field on which he has his own expertise.
The books in this series publish the updated lecture notes of the Saas-Fee Advanced Courses. Many of them have become standard texts in their field. They are not only appreciated by graduate students, but are also used and cited as reference by researchers.
