1. Observational evidence for comapct objects.
2. Formation of compact objects
3. Structure of white dwarfs and neutron stars
4. Radiative processes: synchrotron radiation, inverse compton, bremstrahlung.
5. Radiation from compact objects: pulsars magnetars, acccreting objects, gamma ray bursts.
6. Acretion discs, models and radiation.
Main fields of studies for MISMaP
Familiarity with the radiative processes in astrophysics. Ablity to estimate the shape of spectra based on the properties of a given object. Knowledge of compact object astrophysics and current problems in high energy astronomy.
The students are required to solve home assignements (25%) as well as large numerical problems connectes with the leture (25%), and pass the midterm (25%) and final exams (25%).
Obtaining at least 50% is required in order to pass.
