About the content

Comment étudier l'Univers dans lequel nous vivons en utilisant la seule information qu'il nous envoie: la lumière ? Ce cours donne un aperçu des phénomènes physiques qui se cachent derrière les objets astronomiques qui nous entourent, des planètes et des étoiles jusqu'aux filaments cosmiques, en passant par les galaxies comme notre Voie Lactée et les amas de galaxies. Le cours met l'accent sur le lien entre les prédictions théoriques et les observations et constitue la base indispensable des cours d'astrophysique avancés.
