Summer school

BASIS Foundation Summer School 2019

"Evolution of galaxies and stars"

“BASIS” Foundation, Sternberg Astronomical Institute and Faculty of Physics of Lomonosov Moscow State University continue the annual series of summer schools on theoretical physics. The 2019 school “ Evolution of galaxies and stars” will be devoted to astrophysics - theory and observations on galaxy formation and evolution and physics of core-collapse supernovae and stellar explosions. The school will include 7 lecture courses, 8-10 academic hours each.

The program targets the advanced students, PhD students and young researchers specializing in theoretical astrophysics. The purpose of the School is to provide modern physical basis in major topics in theory of galaxy formation and evolution and in theory of core-collapse supernovae and stellar explosions. The official language of the school is English.

Arrival date: 15.07.2019, departure date: 27.07.2019.

Lecture courses:

  1. “Modern cosmology: from dark matter to galaxies”,

    Anatoly Klypin, New Mexico State University

  2. “The Role of the Circumgalactic Medium in Galaxy Evolution”,

    Christopher Churchill, New Mexico State University

  3. “Galaxy Formation in a Cosmological Context”, Daniel Ceverino,

    Cosmic Dawn Center, Niels Bohr Institute (University of Copenhagen)

  4. “Stellar evolution and variety of stellar explosions”,

    Takashi Moriya, National Astronomical Observatory of Japan

  5. “Physics of core-collapse supernovae”, Andrey Yudin,
