This volume presents results from the ESO workshop Multiple Stars across the H-R Diagram, held in Garching in July 2005. It covers observations of multiple stars from ground and space, dynamical and stellar evolution in multiple systems, formation and early evolution of multiple stars, and special components of multiple stars. The book reviews the current state of observational and theoretical knowledge and discusses future studies for further progress in the field.Also we discuss multiple systems where the apparent ages of the components are different. ... Historically, the configurations of multiple stars were separated into two types: trapezia (or non-hierarchical) systems and Im Lyrae (or hierarchical) anbsp;...
