Publisher: arXiv.org 2020
Number of pages: 100
A century ago, nuclear physics entered astrophysics, giving birth to a new field of science referred to as Nuclear Astrophysics. The present Astronuclear Physics review focuses primarily on the facets of nuclear physics that are of relevance to astronomy and astrophysics, the theoretical aspects being of special concern here.

The modern approach to quantum cosmology, as initiated by Hartle and Hawking, Linde, Vilenkin and others. We explain how one determines the consequences for the late universe of a given quantum theory of cosmological initial or boundary conditions.

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.

In these lecture notes, the author reviews some recent developments on the relation between the macroscopic entropy of four-dimensional BPS black holes and the microscopic counting of states, beyond the thermodynamical, large charge limit.

This course is a graduate-level introduction to gas dynamical processes in astrophysics. Its goal is to teach you the basic concepts and equations of gas dynamics and to illustrate the application of gas dynamics to astrophysics.
