Teaching

Here are some courses that we teach at UCA.

Fluid mechanics for Astrophysicists (O. HAHN)

This is a fundamental course in the first year master program in astrophysics at UCA (MAUCA M1). The course comprises kinetic theory, fluid mechanics with a focus on astrophysical applications, some plasma physics and MHD, as well as a short module on computational fluid mechanics.

The lecture notes can be found here as a PDF file.

Cosmological Simulations (O. HAHN)

This is an optional module in master program in astrophysics at UCA (MAUCA). The course comprises a very concise introduction to cosmology with a very strong focus on numerical aspects and the basics of cosmological simulations: linear perturbation theory, generation of initial conditions, 1d collisionless dynamics, running Gadget simulations, analysing simulations using power spectra and mass functions.
