Accretion processes in astrophysics

Prof. dr. hab. Bozena Czerny - CAMK, PAN, Warszawa

Abstract: The series of lectures will present the role of accretion as a sources of energii in several types of astronomical objects. I will introduce the basic parameters of accretion and will discuss their observational determination, and next I will describe the basic accretion modes (spherical accretion, disk accretion), including the transonic character of the flow. I will close with the summary of the properties of several classes of objects where the accretion plays a leading role.
