Understanding of basic astrophysical processes described by quantum mechanics.

Applications of quantum mechanics to atomic and molecular processes which are important in astrophysical environments and observations. This course will cover:

  • atomic and molecular structure
  • spectroscopy (selection rules, oscillator strengths, photoionization) 
  • scattering theory (elastic, inelastic, approximate methods) 
  • line broadening 
  • collision processes involving electrons, ions, atoms, and molecules (cross sections, rate coefficients)

Lecture, assessment is based on a single examination at the end of the course.

Course examination according to § 7, statute section on "study-law regulations".

Will be discussed in the first lesson.
