I have always regarded the virial theorem as extremely powerful in understanding problems of stellar astrophysics, but I have also found it to be poorly understood by many who study the subject. While it is obvious that the theorem has not changed in the quarter-century that has passed since I first wrote the monograph, pressures on curricula have reduced the exposure of students to the theorem even below that of the mid 20th century.
Thus by no means can I claim to have prepared here a complete and exhaustive discussion of the virial theorem; rather this effort should be viewed as a guided introduction, punctuated by a few examples. I can only hope that the reader will proceed with the attitude that this constitutes not an end in itself, but an establishment of a point of view that is useful in comprehending some of the aspects of the universe. A second traditional role of a preface is to provide a vehicle for acknowledging Ihe help and assistance the author received in the preparation of his work.

The book is divided into seven chapters, featuring both core and optional content: Basic concepts. This book is designed to cover the most important aspects of stellar astrophysics inside a one semester (or half-year) course and as such is relevant for advanced undergraduate students following a first course on stellar astrophysics, in physics or astronomy programs.
