Physical processes of celestial phenomena as determined from space-based instrumentation. While the entire electromagnetic spectrum is covered, the high-energy (X-ray and gamma ray) region is emphasized. Results from ground-based instrumentation (e.g., radio and optical) may be introduced.
In this course, you will: 1. Acquire basic knowledge about cosmic sources of high-energy radiation; 2. Develop analytical, scientific, and critical thinking skills; 3. Develop the ability to identify the appropriate physics laws/principles and mathematical methods needed to tackle a specific astrophysics problem. 4. Make connections between mathematics, physics and astronomy.
