Late Stages of Stars, Supernovae and Gamma-ray Bursts, SC

  • 7.5 credits

The course deals with observations of and theoretical concepts for the late evolutionary phases of high mass

stars and the processes which determine their evolution. Specifically it treats the evolution after the Main

Sequence for high mass stars which ultimately explode as supernovae. The relationships to different types of

gamma ray bursts are also discussed. The physical processes studied in this course are degenerate gases,

nuclear burning, stellar winds / mass loss / jets, neutrino processes and thermonuclear explosions.

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