Prof. Sara Beck

The course is given in the second semester,

Monday 14:00-16:0 and Thursday 9-10, Shenkar Physics 204

The aim of this course is that the student, given an scientific question, will determine the observations needed to answer the question, form an observing program, select the platform, plan the observations and analyse the data. The class is required for all observers, and recommended for theorists who want to know how much to believe their data.

Most references are on the Web and will be linked to here. Among physical books, Kitchen's Observational Techniques (in the Library) and Cox's Astrophysical Quantities are always good to have.

The grade will be based on exercises and the final exam, probably 50-50.
