Seminar on contemporary achievements of theoretical and observational astrophysics

Full description:

Seminar is devoted to review of up-to-date papers on theoretical and observational astrophysics.

Particularly, papers on compact stars (white dwarfs, neutron stars), sources of x-ray radiation (bursters, accreting black holes, interstellar medium) and papers presenting observations of celestial objects from space (e.g. cosmic microwave radiation) are presented.

The main instructive aim is to acquaint students with methods of preparing and presentation of lectures. Seminars are prepared by students based on papers published in refereed journals or are available as preprints written in English.
