Poised between two burgeoning fields, astrophysics and particle physics, this work describes what the study of stars reveals about fundamental particle interactions, presenting the many uses of stellar astrophysics for research in basic particle physics. The text focuses primarily on the properties and nongravitational interactions of elementary particles. Graphs and figures throughout the text model the explanations.
