Angaben zur Abhaltung
This is a two-semester course (WS to SS). The first semester covers the physics of stellar structure, thermonuclear reaction rates, and the connection between the structure of nuclei and the reaction rates occurring stars. A clear connection between the structure of the star and the nuclear physics happening in its core during non-explosive nuclear burning phases will be taught. Here, the student will learn from where the elements from carbon to iron come.

The second semester covers the nuclear physics and astrophysics of explosive stellar phenomena (nova, x-ray bursts, supernova). Lectures will also cover topics in experimental methods in nuclear astrophysics, such as the measurement of thermonuclear reaction rates, lifetimes of excited nuclear states, high precision nuclear mass measurements, etc. At this point, the student will have learned where the elements beyond iron are produced in our Universe, and the nuclear physics responsible for their production,
Differential and Integral Calculus, Quantum Mechanics, Thermodynamics, that you have already learned from your Semester 1 - 6 courses.
