  • TU Module (Master/Physics): Either "Theoretische Astrophysik" or "Experimentelle Astrophysik". This lecture has to be combined with at least one practical course (Praktikum) and optionally with another lecture in order to get credits (2 lectures + 1 Praktikum = 12 credit points, 1 lecture + 1 Praktikum = 9 credit points). More info about those other lectures here:
  • FU Module (Master/Physics): "Advanced Astronomy and Astrophysics". This lecture has to be combined with other lectures in order to get credit points in the same way as for the TU modules. List of lectures and practical courses that can be chosen: More info about those other lectures:
  • Contents: Partial differential equations of space and astrophysical plasma simulations. Types of equations: elliptic / hyperbolic / parabolic PDEs; Discretization methods (Finite differences; Finite elements, Spectral methods); Algorithms (Eulerian, Lagrangian); Approaches (test particles, Magnetohydrodynamic; PIC, Vlasov, reduced kinetics)
  • Requirements: Basic knowledge in Physics and Mathematics. B.Sc. Module „Einführung in die Astronomie und Astrophysik“ advised. Open also for all students with interest in astronomy and astrophysics.
