The 35th Jerusalem Winter School in Theoretical Physics

The Physics of Astronomical Transients

Event date: December 27 - January 5, 2018

    Reem Sari (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem)


    Recent years have been blessed by a variety of wide field surveys, 

    and opened up the field of time domain astronomy.

    This was soon followed by the discoveries of a variety of transient phenomena

    in the sky. The school will explore the physics relevant to understanding these objects, from Gamma Ray Bursts, through supernovae, and tidal disruption events to a variety of binary mergers.
