Information for the Winter semester 2017/2018

Welcome to the homepage of the Seminar on Astronomy and Astrophysics (astro830), a four credit point elective course in the Master of Astrophysics programme at the Argelander Institute for Astronomy, at the University of Bonn. Students give a talk, and answer relevant questions afterwards, based on a recently published research paper, as suggested by the supervisors. Students should discuss the topic, the content and the presentation of their talk with their supervisor prior to giving it.
