Description:

ASTR/PHYS 364 is the second of a two-semester sequence in astronomy and astrophysics that is mainly intended for science and engineering majors who are comfortable with calculus-based courses. It is a stand-alone course. The focus of this course is on the structure and evolution of stars, galaxies, and the universe itself. What I hope you will draw from this course is an understanding of how the beauty of mathematics and physics can be applied to astronomy to explain and predict phenomena that have continued to fascinate humans throughout recorded history.
