Dynamics of galaxies, star clusters and planetary systems (MVSem)

Lecturers: Andreas Just, Rainer Spurzem

Summer term 2016 (2 SWS)
Wednesday 14:15 - 16:00, ARI seminarroom

This 'Masterpflichtseminar' is addressed specifically to master students, who intend to obtain the mantadory 'MVSem'' certificate required for master studies. It is organised as a journal club, where every topic usually consists of a seminar talk by the student presenting one or more recent research papers. An additional written report of the presentation is required.
