Description:
The main course objective is to connect the physics on a scale of atomic nuclei with phenomena at the highest possible spatial scales: stars, galaxies and the universe as a whole. Emphasis of the course will be placed on an experimental approach to solving individual problems of nuclear astrophysics, as well as the latest research results in the field.
Course content by topics: Basic concepts of astrophysics. The standard cosmological model. Formalism of nuclear reactions: direct nuclear reactions and resonance processes. The rate of nuclear reactions. The primordial nucleosynthesis. Nucleosynthesis in stars up to iron: quiet burning and explosive processes. Nucleosynthesis of elements heavier than iron: s-, r- and p-processes. Degenerated fermionic matter. Neutron stars: formation and structure. Gamma and x-rays astronomy. Neutrino astrophysics. Cosmic rays. Experimental methods in nuclear astrophysics. Modern research in nuclear astrophysics.
