Theoretical astrophysics

The Theorectical Astrophysics research program explores the areas of: 

  • compact stars, such as white dwarfs, neutron stars (pulsars and magnetars ) and black holes
  • radiation processes and transfer mechanisms in accretion flows on to highly magnetic compact stars
  • modelling of accretion disks
  • modelling of stars and magnetic atmospheres
  • cataclysmic variable binaries
  • searching for the progenitors of type Ia supernovae.
