Dominant Transport Processes in Stars
Assignment (by J.E. Tohline):
 the relevant equation(s) that govern heat (radiation) transport
by photon random walks in stellar interiors (as opposed to stellar
atmospheres); and

the relevant equation(s) that govern heat transport by convection.
Discuss under what circumstances convection dominates over radiation
transport processes.
The presentation should be in an HTML format and, where possible,
a connection should be drawn with the
principal governing equations
that already have been presented in the book.
