Astrophysical Spectra, 7.5 credits

About the course

The course treats the fundamentals of the formation of spectral lines in astrophysical objects. It deals with the transport of radiation through astrophysical media where absorption and emission processes together with hydromagnetic effects take place. It also treats the use of analytical and numerical models to perform calculations of the formation of synthetic spectra. All these concepts are used in applications to stellar atmospheres and interstellar gas.
