KurzbeschreibungThe course examines various topics in astrophysics with an emphasis on physical processes occurring in an expanding Universe, from a time about 1 microsecond after the Big Bang, to the formation of galaxies and supermassive black holes within the next billion years.
LernzielThe course examines various topics in astrophysics with an emphasis on physical processes occurring in an expanding Universe. These include the Robertson-Walker metric, the Friedmann models, the thermal history of the Universe after 1 micro-sec including Big Bang Nucleosynthesis, and introduction to Inflation, and the growth of structure through gravitational instability. The observational determination of cosmological parameters is studied in some detail, including the imprinting of temperature fluctuations on the microwave background. Finally, the key physics of the formation of galaxies and the development of black-hole is reviewed, including the way in which the first structures re-ionize the Universe.
Voraussetzungen / BesonderesThis course covers the former Wahlfach course "Cosmology and Large-Scale Structure of the Universe" (402-0377-00L). Therefore it is not allowed to take credits for both courses.

Prior completion of Astrophysics I is recommended but not required.

KurzbeschreibungDuring the semester there is a colloquium every week on actual research by the members of the Institute of Astrophysics. In general, colloquia are 20 minutes excluding discussion. They start with a general introduction, review techniques and methods of general interest and present results. The goal is to inform all members of the institute about current work.
LernzielA colloquium is a combination of a 10 minute conference paper preceded by a 10 minute widely understandable introduction. The discussion is limited to 10 minutes, but may continue privately. The research colloquia are announced in the ETH Vorlesungsverzeichnis, but are not publicized in the Wochenbulletin of the Department of Physics. All colloquia are given in English.
