The Hertzsprung–Russell diagram, abbreviated H–R diagram or HRD, is a
scatter plot of stars showing the relationship between the stars' absolute
One of the most useful and powerful plots in astrophysics is the Hertzsprung-
Russell diagram (hereafter called the H-R diagram). It originated in 1911 when
The Hertzsprung-Russell diagram (HR diagram) is one of the most important
tools in the study of stellar evolution. Developed independently in the early 1900s
The Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram is a graphical tool that astronomers use to
classify stars according to their luminosity, spectral type, color, temperature and ...
That was not the case however, for the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram. A
significant tool to aid in the understanding of stellar evolution, the H-R diagram
The most famous diagram in astronomy is the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram. This
diagram is a plot of luminosity (absolute magnitude) against the colour of the ...
These diagrams, called the Hertzsprung-Russell or HR diagrams, plot luminosity
in solar units on the Y axis and stellar temperature on the X axis, as shown ...
The classical HR diagram, first constructed in 1914 by Henry Norris Russell (to
which was added the work of Ejnar Hertzsprung), is a plot of absolute visual ...
The Hertzsprung-Russell Diagram is a plot of luminosity vs temperature, except
that the temperature is decreasing to the right on the horizontal axis.
Apr 21, 1999 ... Below is the Hertzsprung-Russell (HR) Diagram for stars near the sun: It is
readily apparent that the H-R Diagram is not uniformly populated, ...
