This course provides a broad overview of fluid phenomena in Astrophysics. The first few weeks cover the basics of fluid dynamics, with an emphasis on compressible phenomena. These basic concepts will be applied in understanding astrophysical phenomena ranging from the solar wind to black hole accretion disks. Magnetic fields are often important in astrophysical situations - we therefore treat the basics of magnetohydrodynamics and use it to understand astrophysical dynamos and jets. Students of this course will be equipped with the basics needed for understanding the research literature in several areas in astrophysics.

About Instructor

Prof. Prasad Subramanian is a professor of Physics at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER), Pune. He has been regularly teaching courses in electrodynamics, fluid dynamics, plasma physics and physical processes in Astrophysics over the last 10 years. He studies the effects of eruptive phenomena in the solar corona on the near-Earth space environment. He is also interested in the manner in which astrophysical black holes attract matter from their surroundings and release energy in the process.
