ASTR 414 - Astrophysics

A study of stellar atmospheres and interiors, this course develops a fundamental understanding of stars and their evolution from the application of several basic principles found in atomic physics, electricity and magnetism, Newtonian mechanics, and statistical mechanics. Topics include fusion processes, reaction rates, stellar structure, the formation of spectral lines, opacity and optical depth effects, and radiative processes in the interstellar medium.
