Interstellar Medium

M.Sc. Theoretical Physics and Cosmology - Universidad Autónoma de Madrid

Co-instructors: Prof. A. Díaz-Beltrán and Prof. G. Meeus

  • Specialized course on the properties of the interstellar medium in all its phases, as well as the physical and chemical processes that take place in it. Students gain knowledge about the physical processes responsible for the properties of low-density astrophysical plasmas observed throughout the universe. In this way, they will understand the various components of the interstellar medium (ionized, atomic and molecular gas, dust and cosmic rays), as well as the observation techniques used for their study (atomic and molecular spectroscopy).
