Physics and Astrophysics of Compact Objects Print E-mail

The study of compact objects such as white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes requires the interplay between nuclear and atomic physics together with relativistic field theories, e.g., general relativity, quantum electrodynamics, quantum chromodynamics, as well as particle physics. In addition to the theoretical physics aspects, the study of astrophysical scenarios characterized by the presence of at least one of the above compact object is focus of extensive research within our group. The research of our group can be divided into the following topics:

• White Dwarf Physics and Structure.

• White Dwarf Astrophysics.

• Neutron Star Physics and Structure.

• Neutron Star Astrophysics.

• Radiation Mechanisms of White Dwarfs and Neutron Stars.

• Exact and Numerical Solutions of the Einstein and Einstein-Maxwell Equations in Astrophysics.
