X-ray and Gamma-ray Astrophysics


The final semester will provide an up to date coverage of x-ray and gamma-ray astronomy and astrophysics. Generation and observational techniques of energetic radiations from accreting neutron stars and black holes, supernova and supernova remnants, active galactic nuclei, interstellar and intergalactic matter, as well as related physics and model building will be discussed. The course will thus explore the most energetic phenomena in the universe and will also provide insight into diverse topics ranging from planetary exploration to dark matter and cosmology. This course is also available for advanced undergraduates, with the prerequisites as noted in 476/576.
