RANDOM MEANDERINGS THROUGH THE COSMIC WEB


Stellar Dynamics and Structure of Galaxies


I supervise the Part II Astrophysics module "Stellar Dynamics and Strucure of Galaxies", taught by Professor Gerry Gilmore. The teaching is in small groups, to be held at the IoA anywhere where there is a free room. As the module progresses, I will upload my solutions to the example sheets which will be available here:

Example Sheet 1 Solutions
Example Sheet 1 Solutions Supplementary
Example Sheet 1 Useful Orbits sheet with examples
Example Sheet 2 Solutions
Example Sheet 2 Supplementary
Example Sheet 3 Solutions
Example Sheet 3 Supplementary

NB: The Binney and Tremaine book is very useful if you get stuck on any of these problems

Example Sheet 4 Solutions

I will organise a revision session for the final example sheet, and also a revision session to go through a few of the problems from past exam questions, if people have any problems. Please feel free to email me with any problems you might have before the exam and we can try and sort them out.
