Information for the summer semester 2017

Welcome to the homepage of the Seminar on Astronomy and Astrophysics (astro830), a four credit point elective seminar in the Master of Astrophysics programme at the Argelander Institute for Astronomy, part of the University of Bonn. Students give a talk and answer relevant questions both live and afterward by email. Talk topics are based on published papers, as suggested by the supervisors, and students should discuss their topic, and the content of their talk, with their supervisor prior to giving it.
