The Distant Stars

Semester: 
First
Offered: 
2016

This course focusses on specific attributes of stars that are of crucial significance to understanding stars and the universe. It deals with topics such as: the measurement of positions of stars in the sky, proper motions of stars, distances to nearby stars, measurement of brightnesses of stars, the color-magnitude diagrams, masses and radii of the stars, pulsating stars and understanding of stellar spectra.
