After passing course the student is expected to
Basic concepts of atomic, molecular and optical physics, and interaction of radiation and matter. Application to modelling (eg MATLAB) the state of matter and spectra in astrophysics. Introduction to gas dynamics, including effects of gravitation. Application to modelling of dynamical processes within astrophysics, especially stars, their environment, and the interstellar medium. Selected in-depth examples, e.g., early universe chemistry, dynamical processes in and around stars (pulsation, convection, stellar winds).
Lectures, seminars, computer assignments and hand-in exercises. Individual presentations on selected topics.
Computer assignments and hand-in exercises (8 credits) and oral and written presentation of literature project (2 credits).
