Abstract

IN recent years the application of high-speed digital computers to problems in theoretical astrophysics has combined with fundamental research in nuclear physics and solar convection to achieve considerable understanding of the physics of not only stellar interiors but also stellar evolution. The connecting link between this increasingly elaborate theory and the corresponding ensemble of observations is the scale of bolometric-corrections (B.C.) and effective-temperatures (Te).
