The Violent Universe

Violent phenomena like energetic explosions, jet-like ejection of matter or sudden collapse of stars are very common in the Universe.  These phenomena play a key role in controlling the energetics of gas in galaxies and the synthesis and dispersal of heavy elements.   Of late, major emphasis has been placed globally on the study of such events and new information is emerging rapidly.  This course acquaints the student with the physical processes associated with these violent events and the wealth of information that can be gleaned from them about the evolution of the universe.
