Supernova Remnants: The X-ray Perspective
by Jacco Vink
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 78
Supernova remnants are beautiful astronomical objects that are also of high scientific interest, because they provide insights into supernova explosion mechanisms, and because they are the likely sources of Galactic cosmic rays. X-ray observations are an important means to study these objects.

These are the notes for an introductory graduate course. They are meant to be a 'primer' for students embarking on a Ph.D. in astronomy. The level is somewhat shallower than standard textbook courses, but quite a broad range of material is covered.

We present an up-to-date review of Big Bang Nucleosynthesis. We discuss the improvements which have been achieved in the past decades on the overall theoretical framework, summarize the impact of new experimental results on nuclear reaction rates.

Cold and dense nuclear and quark matter can be found in the interior of compact stars. The author gives a pedagogical introduction to microscopic calculations based on phenomenological models, effective theories, and perturbative QCD.
