Astrophysics of particles (Semesters 8-9)

Astroparticle physics is a newborn area of science which studies particle properties by means of astrophysical methods and properties of astrophysical objects by means of particle-physics methods. This lecture course gives a necessary astrophysical background for this field and discusses basic concepts and methods of astroparticle physics (thermal production of light weakly interacting particles, non-thermal emission in astrophysics, non-photon astronomy etc.)
