AbstractDuring 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.
ObjectiveA 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.
402-0372-00LPhysics of Star and Planet Formation Information 6 credits2V + 1UM. R. Meyer
AbstractThe course will cover the physics of molecular clouds in the interstellar medium, protostellar collapse, early stellar evolution, circumstellar disk physics, planet formation, and the evolution of planetary systems.
ObjectiveOur goal is to provide students with an overview of the physics of star and planet formation, exposure to application of physical principles to a novel set of circumstances, as well as highlight current topics of research within the field.
Prerequisites / NoticeThere is some overlap with the former course unit 402-0372-00L Physik der Stern- und Planetenentstehung. Students who received credits for the course unit 402-0372-00L from the spring semester 2009 or before cannot get credit for this course unit. Students are recommended (but not required) to have already taken Astrophysics I (or equivalent) when enrolling in this course.
