Radiative Gas Dynamics
by David Weinberg
Publisher: Ohio State University 2007
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 (a.k.a. fluid dynamics or hydrodynamics) and to illustrate the application of gas dynamics to astrophysics.

In this review, after describing the extreme astrophysical systems of interest and identifying the key relevant plasma-physical problems, we survey the recent progress in the development of QED-based relativistic quantum plasma physics theory.

This set of lectures is an introduction to black-hole astrophysics. The emphasis is made on the phenomenology of X-ray binaries and of supermassive compact objects at galactic centers. Notes to the lectures given at the School on Particle Physics...

These lectures are aimed at graduate students in astrophysics/particle theory/particle experiment. We explain the important progress made in recent years towards understanding the experimental data on cosmic rays with energies higher than 10e8 GeV.
