This course reviews the rotational properties of nondegenerate stars as observed from the protostellar stage to the end of the main sequence. It includes an introduction to the various observational techniques used to measure stellar rotation. Angular momentum evolution models developed over the mass range from the substellar domain to high-mass stars are briefly discussed.

    Angular momentum plays a crucial role in the formation of stars and planets. It has long been noticed that parcels of gas in molecular clouds need to reduce their specific angular momentum by 6 to 7 orders of magnitude to participate in the building of a typical star like the Sun. Several...

    The article reports on the present theory of galaxy formation agrees that galaxies were gathered through the disorderly hierarchical uniting of massive haloes of dark matter, in which star-forming matter was later planted. It discusses that one would hence anticipate the properties of individual...

    It has been suggested that turbulent motions are responsible for the transport of angular momentum during the formation of Pop. III stars, however the exact details of this process have never been studied. We report the results from three dimensional SPH simulations of a rotating...
