The theory of stellar interiors is a very stimulating topic in the physics and astrophysics curricula. To support the corresponding lecture courses, some practical work was proposed and elaborated in 1991 for advanced students of the physics department at Moscow State University specializing in astrophysics. The work, which requires significant knowledge in theoretical astrophysics, is recommended for fifth-year students. The main purpose of the work is to calculate the evolutionary set of stellar models, including those for the Sun. The PC program, based on the B. Paczynski code and supported by the web interface, allows working via the Internet. The results of the work may be presented in both tabular and graphic forms.
