PHYSICS 367: Special Topics in Astrophysics: Stellar and High Energy Astrophysics

The first 4-weeks will be on stellar physics including observations, structure and evolution of stars from their birth to the main sequence phase and eventual paths to compact stars (white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes). This part will end with observations of compact stars at optical, X- and gamma-rays, and gravitational waves. The second 4-weeks will be on high energy astrophysical sources in particular the processes governing their energizing, and mechanisms of acceleration of particles and the emission characteristics. Radiation transfer and the roles of turbulence and shocks in all above processes will be also reviewed. Prerequisites: Upper undergraduate or graduate level on Mechanics, Electromagnetism including Special Theory of Relativity.
