Assignment to Modules

This course is not assigned to any module.

Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks The second semester of this course covers the nuclear physics and astrophysics of explosive stellar phenomena (nova, x-ray bursts, supernova). The production mechanisms of the s-process, r-process and rp-process will be taught, and their astrophysical sites will be understood. Lectures will also cover topics in experimental methods in nuclear astrophysics, such as the measurement of thermonuclear reaction rates, lifetimes of excited nuclear states, high precision nuclear mass measurements, and indirect nuclear measurements of nuclear reaction rates. Additionally, special topics concerning the past interaction of supernova explosions and Earth will be presented. At this point, the student will have learned where the elements beyond iron are produced in our Universe, and the nuclear physics responsible for their production.
