High Energy Astrophysics, 7.5 credits

The goal of this course is to give basic knowledge about high-energy processes in the Universe and how these can be studied both theoretically and observationally. Objects like supernovae, gamma-ray bursts, white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes are studied. The course also includes physical processes that can give rise to the observed radiation, like mass transfer in binary systems, acceleration of relativistic particles and neutrino astronomy.

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