ASTR 301 - Astrophysics I: Stars and Planets

FC NSMA QFR
4 credits
Astrophysics is physical analysis applied to astronomical problems. We will develop some of the basic tools of astrophysics in this course. Radiation theory, including thermal and non-thermal radiation, will be studied as well as the transfer of radiation through typical astrophysical media. Other topics will include star formation, degenerate matter, atomic physics in an interstellar setting, and the detection of electromagnetic radiation over a broad range of wavelength regimes.

Prerequisites: PHYS 212.
