Objectives
The bulk of the group?s activities involve the study of stellar evolution using numerical codes. The simulations encompass those natural phenomena that may potentially affect the latest stages of the evolution of massive and intermediate-mass stars. Several of the most important phenomena are hydrodynamic, nuclear and electromagnetic processes. The group therefore studies the evolutionary processes that lead to compact objects (white dwarfs, neutron stars and black holes) as well as to catastrophic outcomes (novae and supernovae explosions). A further area of interest deals with the observational and theoretical study of bipolar nebulae and the jets of material ejected from Herbig-Haro objects. The group is also engaged in the study of stellar kinematics in the solar neighbourhood through astrometric satellites and in the more theoretical subject of relativistic cosmology. Several of the group?s researchers are university lecturers in astronomy and are also dedicated to the dissemination of the space sciences
