16:750:606 NUCLEAR PHYSICS II (3)

  • Course Description:

    Advanced treatment of some topics discussed in 750:605, together with additional topics chosen in consultation with students.

    This is an advanced graduate course designed for students pursuing research in astrophysics. We will study the physics of gas in extreme conditions and use it to understand the structure and evolution of stars. We will apply some of the same principles to planetary atmospheres in order to understand ongoing work on extrasolar planets. We will develop the formal theory as much as possible and consider computational approaches as appropriate.
