Cambridge University Press, Competence BASIC AND GENERAL CB1 - Students should have demonstrated to possess and understand the concepts in an area of study that starts from the base of general secondary education, and is usually found at a level that, although supported by advanced textbooks, also includes some aspects that imply knowledge coming from the vanguard of their field of study.
CB2 - Students should know how to apply their knowledge to their work or vocation in a professional manner and possess the skills that are usually demonstrated through the elaboration and defense of arguments and the resolution of problems within their area o study. CB3 - Students should have the ability to gather and interpret relevant data usually within their area of study to make judgments that include a reflection on relevant issues of social, scientific or ethical nature.
CG1 - Possess and understand the most important concepts, methods and results of the different branches of Physics, with a historical perspective of their development.
CG2 - Have the ability to gather and interpret data, information and relevant results, obtain conclusions and issue reasoned reports on scientific, technological or other issues that require the use of knowledge of Physics. CG3 - Apply both the theoretical and practical knowledge acquired as well as the capacity for analysis and abstraction in the definition and posing of problems and in the search for their solutions both in academic and professional contexts.
CT2 - Have the capacity for organization and planning. CT5 - Develop critical reasoning. SPECIFIC CE1 - Have a good understanding of the most important physical theories, locating in their logical and mathematical structure, their experimental support and the physical phenomenon that can be described through them.
CE2 - Be able to clearly handle orders of magnitude and make appropriate estimates in order to develop a clear perception of situations that, although physically different, show some analogy, allowing the use of known solutions to new problems. CE3 - Be familiar with the most important experimental models, also be able to perform experiments independently, as well as describe, analyze and critically evaluate the experimental data.
CE4 - Be able to compare new experimental data with available models to check its validity and suggest changes that improve the agreement of the models with the data. CE5 - Be able to perform the essentials of a process or situation and establish a work model of it, as well as perform the required approaches in order to reduce the problem to a manageable level.
They will demonstrate critical thinking to build physical models. CE6 - Understand and master the use of mathematical and numerical methods most commonly used in Physics CE7 - Be able to use computer tools and develop software programs CE8 - Be able to manage, search and use bibliography, as well as any source of relevant information and apply it to research and technical development of projects Teaching methodology The course consists of blackboard lectures that are complemented by problem sets discussed in class, emphasizing the issues that arise when solving and encouraging student participation.
Likewise, the course consists of several sessions of practical classes to be held in the observatory of the USC. Finally, an exercise of the numerical resolution of the equation of equilibrium of a star will be proposed as part of the home work. Necessary conditions to pass the subject are that the student has to pass at least two of the three parts of the written exam, and that, in the case of failing one part, the grade of it has to be at least 3 points out of The practicum activities are obligatory.
Study time and individual work Theoretical lectures: 24 hours. Problems and practices: 18 hours. Tutorials: 3 hours Estimated additional time for personal work: about Recommendations for the study of the subject Be able to manage concepts of other subjects, including quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, thermodynamics and nuclear and particle physics. Follow the field consistently, actively participating in both theory classes, formulating relevant questions, and in problems and practices.
Any informatics knowledge is welcome, mainly some experience in Matlab package Comments Modifications introduced in execution of the Rectoral Resolution of March 23 because of the temporary suspension of face-to-face teaching. All the pending experimental sessions of Astronomy will be replaced with a homework consisting on the identification and classification of spectral lines of a digitized stellar spectrum that, along with the detailed description of the work to be done, will be accessible to each student through the Aula Virtual or directly through email.
Remote teaching, following the regular schedule and for the regular duration of the lectures, is being carried out using the lecture notes of the teacher, available in Aula Virtual, as well as using the Teams tool. Doubts and other questions concerning the contents of the subject are being solved through the Aula Virtual and the institutional email of the teachers.
Modifications introduced in execution of the Agreement of the Governing Council of April 22, which regulates the special evaluation regime for the academic year as a consequence of the suspension of face-to-face teaching by COVID Regarding the evaluation system: In the Astronomy part the final exam is suppressed and continuous evaluation will be made instead.
In the parts of Astrophysics and Cosmology, the final face-to-face exams will be replaced with telematic final tests on a date to be determined by the Dean of Physics. The grade obtained in these tests will be averaged with those obtained in the continuous evaluations of these two parts.

Toggle navigation USC. Information for foreigners. In this sense, development of each topic and practical classes are mixed in with the theory in order to apply the obtained knowledge rapidly. The students will simultaneously perform astronomical observations and class work with the aim to become familiar with the basic methods used in astronomy.
