|WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?||WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:|
|MODULE 1: BLACK HOLES
Black holes are about the most facinating objects in the universe. Yet, with all the complicated physics that goes into their formation through stellar collapse, they remain some of the most simple systems in the universe. In fact they offer one of the best laboratories for the study of quantum gravity!
This course is a basic introduction to the subject of stellar collapse, black holes and some of their thermodynamic properties. The course will conclude with a detailed study of Hawking radiation, black hole entropy and (if time permits) black hole microscopy.
