This is an advance course on the physics of stars (including the Sun) and planets. It starts from reviewing the theory of radiative transfer, including polarised radiation due to scattering and magnetic fields. Then, we will learn about stellar evolution, followed by solar and stellar magnetic activity. Finally, we will study physics of planets, including their formation, evolution, atmospheres, and habitability. The course is given in English.
