Lectures

Stellar Atmospheres / Theoretical Astrophysics

This is an advanced course on stellar atmospheres reviewing the theory of radiative transfer under various conditions, including polarized radiation due to scattering and magnetic fields. Our goal is to understand processes forming stellar spectra.

The course is given in English.

Astrobiology

Astrobiology is the science that addresses the questions on the origins, evolution, distribution, and future of life in the Universe. Organic matter is a fundamental constituent of living systems and represents the substance from which life has been generated on the early Earth. The distribution of organic matter in the Universe has a direct influence on where life could originate. In this lecture course we will examine the major environments in which organic matter is created, including debris of the interstellar medium, organic-rich circumstellar envelopes, solar nebula, and the prebiotic Earth. We will study the main energy sources for the life and learn how to find life on exoplanets.

The course is given in English.
