'The whole text is written in a clear and light scientific style.
It is fully referenced to scientific publications and supported by numerous figures, mainly in full colour ...
The present book can be recommended to any interested reader with a background in physics and/or astronomy, in particular to undergraduate and graduate students within astronomy and related fields, possibly being also of interest to scientists in (evolutionary) biology.'Contemporary PhysicsThe search for exoplanets and habitable objects in general is one of the fastest growing and most prominent fields in modern astrophysics.
This book provides an overview on habitability on exoplanets. Habitability is strongly dependent on stellar activity.
Therefore, space weather effects on objects in the solar system as well as on exoplanets are discussed.The concept of the book is to introduce the topics and then discuss actual scientific papers so that the interested reader has access to most recent research.
Therefore the book is valuable to undergraduate students as well as to graduate students and researchers.
