Welcome to the Stars and Stellar Evolution Computer Laboratory Course. This course is a compontent of the Stars and Stellar Evolution course (astro811), and was originally developed by Robert Izzard. In this course, students will use a state-of-the-art stellar evolution code to simulate their own stars. This is done using the Window to the Stars package. Those of you with your own laptops may wish to consider installing the software prior to the start of the lab course.
