Hi,

I learned a lot of that relationship in:

there are several chapters where the it is clean and well explained.. so enjoy,

regards,

Dear Yuvasri Gopinath ,

It depends on which subject of Astrophysics.

Let's say for neutrons starts you can follow on the chapter entitled "properties of matter at very high-density" chap XI. in the book:

Landau, L. D., & Lifshitz, E. M. 1980, Statistical Physics (Elsevier Ltd.)

For gas dynamics and fluctuations in interstellar media you can follow some classics:

1. Spitzer, L. 1962, Physics of Fully Ionized Gases (New York: Wiley)

2. Braginskii, S. I. 1965, RvPP, 1, 205

3. Parker, E. N. 1953, ApJ, 117, 431

Best Regards.

The author presents an analytic proof of the integrals for astrophysical thermonuclear functions which are derived on the basis of Boltzmann-Gibbs statistical mechanics. Among the four different cases of astrophysical thermonuclear functions, those with a depleted high-energy tail and a cut-off at high energies find a natural interpretation in q-st...

Stimulated by the recent debate on the physical relevance and on the predictivity of q-Gaussian formalism, we present specific analytical expressions for the parameters characterizing non-Gaussian distributions, such as the nonextensive parameter q, expressions that we have proposed for different physical systems, an important example being plasmas...

We examine an inconsistency in theories of violent-relaxation by Lynden-Bell and Nakamura. The inconsistency arises from the non-transitive nature of these theories: a system that under goes a violent-relaxation, relaxes and then upon an addition of energy, undergoes violent-relaxation once again would settle in an equilibrium state that is differe...
