Resumen:
In  this chapter the  equations of  stellar structure  are introduced.Up-to-date descriptions  of the  most relevant microphysics  needed tobuild reliable stellar configurations are also provided. These includethe  equation of state,  nuclear reactions,  opacities and  other lessfrequently  discussed  physical   processes,  such  as  diffusion  andradiative  levitation. The  necessary  numerical techniques  currentlyemployed to build evolutionary stellar models as well as the otherwisenecessary  boundary conditions  needed to  integrate the  equations ofstellar  structure are also  addressed.  Finally,  an overview  of thecurrent state-of-the-art modeling is given.
