Astronomy 822: ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION

Autumn 2002


Go directly to syllabus

Textbook

George B. Rybicki & Alan P. Lightman, Radiation Processes in Astrophysics (John Wiley, 1979).

I may also assign some readings from papers or other books during the course to complement our main textbook (which is very good in explaining the theory, but does not generally go into applications of the physical concepts to real astrophysics).

Other complementary books:

12. Plasma effects: Dispersion, Faraday rotation.

Problems: 8.1, 8.2.
Complete by 12/3
