PHYS 302 - Stellar Astrophysics II


Description:
Application of physical principles including relativity, quantum theory, classical electromagnetic fields, and classical mechanics to astrophysical processes and the evolution of astrophysical systems.

Prerequisites:
Prerequisite: PHYS 301.

Credits: (2)

Learner Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Demonstrate the application of classical and modern physics principles to characterize and analyze astrophysical systems and phenomena.
  • Demonstrate the application of classical and modern physics principles to astrophysical processes and the evolution of astrophysical systems of simple and intermediate complexity.
  • Demonstrate quantitative and physical reasoning and mathematical analysis appropriate for astrophysical systems of simple and intermediate complexity. Students will either develop or employ a computational model for an astrophysical phenomenon or process.
