The first lecture will take place on Friday, April 22 at 9:15am at Philos.-weg 12 / R 105.

This will be mostly a blackboard-style lecture accompanied by slides, interactive elements, figures and animations. All materials will be made available.

Covered topics range from basics of binary star evolution such as the classical two-body problem, tides and mass exchange to more complex processes such as stellar mergers, common-envelope evolution and compact-object binaries including gravitational-wave merger events. 

Background knowledge on stellar evolution is helpful and a recap of the most important aspects will be covered.
