Toggle navigation USC. In this sense, development of each topic and practical classes are mixed in with the theory in order to apply the obtained knowledge rapidly. The students will simultaneously perform astronomical observations and class work with the aim to become familiar with the basic methods used in astronomy. Contents - Kepler's Laws. Astronomical coordinate systems.

Acquisition of positioning and astronomical observation techniques.
Teaching methodology The course consists of blackboard lectures that are complemented by problem sets discussed in class, emphasizing the issues that arise when solving and encouraging student participation. Likewise, the course consists of several sessions of practical classes to be held in the observatory of the USC. Finally, an exercise of the numerical resolution of the equation of equilibrium of a star will be proposed as part of the home work.
Study time and individual work Theoretical cectures: 18 hours. Problems and practices: 18 hours. Estimated additional time for personal work: about 70 hours. Recommendations for the study of the subject Be able to manage concepts of other subjects, including quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics and nuclear and particle physics. Follow the field consistently, actively participating in both theory classes, formulating relevant questions, and in problems and practices.
