Faculty of Mathematics

 

These courses provide a broad introduction to research in theoretical astrophysics; they are taken by students of both Part III Mathematics and Part III Astrophysics. The courses are mostly self-contained, building on knowledge that is common to undergraduate programmes in theoretical physics and applied mathematics. For specific pre-requisites please see the individual course descriptions.
