Introductory Workshop on Astrophysics and Cosmology

About the Workshop

As we know Astronomy is not only the oldest branch of all sciences, but it can also be called as the fountainhead of all sciences. In Astronomy, the experiments occur automatically in stars, galaxies and interstellar medium that we can observe from the earth. Cosmology is also another fascinating subject that combines all fundamental aspects of physics – quantum physics, particle physics, the physics of large collection of matter along with Special and General relativity- in a search for something of greatest importance to us, the history of the Universe. The main objective of the workshop is to expose M.Sc. students, Ph.D. research scholars, post-docs and young faculty members to the modern trends in Astrophysics & Cosmology by inviting leading experts from these areas. The workshop is mainly focusing on the latest developments in these field, particularly in the context of star formation, stellar structure, cosmological large scale structure, galaxy formation and evaluation and also on Gravitational Waves.
