A short review of physics and evolution of close binary stars is presented. The paper contains results of numerical model of evolving components and whole volume of observational information in different diapasons of electromagnetic spectra and gravitational wave radiations. This subject consists one of base of modern astrophysics, what is laboratory for exploration of Universe matter and Universe itself. The progress of our knowledge of physics and evolution of astronomical objects during last fifty years provided by study of close binary stars evolution. The paper is devoted to a short presentation of the picture of their evolution, grounded on data of modern observation and theoretical models.
