Astrophysical Radiation Processes, 7.5 credits

In this course you will study the physical processes that give rise to the radiation we study in astronomy. Topics covered are among others Maxwell's equations, retarded potentials, multipole radiation, spectral distribution and Larmor's formula. This knowledge is then used to describe the origin of free-free emission, synchrotron radiation and Compton radiation. The course ends with applications of these types of radiation.

Further course information will appear soon on this page. Until then, information can be found on the department website.
