The school will attempt to address such questions as :
1) How common are star-forming events of varying richness ?
2) What are the dynamical states of these events ?
3) In what sort of star-forming event did the Sun form ?
4) How can we use answers to these questions to constrain predictive theories of star formation ?
These questions will be addressed by the following distinguished international faculty :
Prof. Cathie Clarke, Institute of Astronomy, U. Cambridge
Prof. Robert Mathieu, Dept. of Astronomy, U. Wisconsin
Dr. Neill Reid, Space Telescope Science Institute
See the course website located HERE and register ASAP.

Understanding the formation and evolution of the natural satellites of the planets is important, as a piece of the wider puzzle concerning the formation and evolution of the solar system as a whole. Significant progress has been achieved recently on the formation of the Moon and of the regular satellites of the giant planets. However, many questions regarding the different formation mechanisms are still unanswered. The goal of the symposium is to review all possible scientific mechanisms for forming the moons, and for driving their subsequent evolutions, and their consequences on our current understanding of solar system formation and evolution.

Scientific Description : X-ray binaries and Active Galactic Nuclei provide us a unique opportunity to explore the properties of matter in extreme conditions and test fundamental physical theories in extreme environments. These objects emit across the wavelengths, and hence multi-wavelength studies of them will be useful to probe, among other things, high-density degenerate matter, theories of gravitation in the strong field regime and the inflow-outflow (disk-jet-wind) mechanism. The Indian astronomy satellite ASTROSAT will perform simultaneous observations from optical to hard X-ray, monitor the sky for X-ray transient activities, and detect and study the rapid variability of these sources. This session aims to include the new theoretical and observational results, as well as reviews, related to accreting neutron stars and black holes (stellar-mass and super-massive) at wavelengths relevant to ASTROSAT, and complementary studies in other wavelengths. The session will also include presentations on the effective ways to use ASTROSAT, including joint observations with other space-based and ground instruments.
Duration : 3 half-days.
The precise dates of the event will be announced as soon as they are fixed.
