Section: 001
Term: WN 2018
Subject: Astronomy (ASTRO)
Department: LSA Astronomy
Requirements & Distribution:
Advisory Prerequisites:
Graduate standing and permission of instructor.
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

This course deals with the internal structure and evolution of stars and with stellar atmospheres, the interpretation of stellar spectra. The first part surveys observations and theory relevant to stellar interiors. Then follow the physics of stellar models — equations of state, energy transport, energy production; model computations; and stellar evolution from the main sequence to final states. The second part of the course treats the basic hydrostatic equation in optical depth, stellar hydrodynamics, opacity and the continuum, the physics of absorption-line profiles, model atmosphere computations, and the construction of spectral syntheses to obtain abundance of the chemical elements in stars.
