Dynamics of astrophysical fluids and plasmas [PHYS-753, autumn semester 2021/2020 @ EPFL]

The dynamics of ordinary matter in the Universe follows the laws of (magneto)hydrodynamics. In this course, the system of equations that describes astrophysical fluids will be discussed on the basis of selected astrophysical examples, from the physics of stars, to galaxies and the early Universe.

Time: Thursdays 10:15 – 12:00 (Lecture) and 13:15-15:00 (Exercises). [This course will be live-streamed. Please contact me if you’d like to participate remotely.]
