PUBLICATION OF BOOK - DR. RICHARD GRAY

Dr. Richard Gray has published a book entitled Stellar Spectral Classification  (Princeton University Press). The book, which is co-authored by Christopher J. Corbally from the Vatican Observatory, outlines both the foundations and techniques of stellar classification. 

“A worthy descendent of Morgan and Keenan’s foundational work, Stellar Spectral Classification fills a huge need by providing a spectacularly good discussion of stellar spectra.  With a highly detailed and digital view of the modern art of classification that extends from the infrared through the optical to the ultraviolet, and includes full discussions of new cool classes L and T, there is not much on the subject that one cannot find in this well-written and richly illustrated volume.”  --James B. Kaler, author of Stars and their Spectra.
