Astronomy & Astrophysics

The Astronomy and Astrophysics Section, which evolved from the former Cosmic Ray Section and the Astronomy Section at Dunsink Observatory, carries out research in a range of fields: active galactic nuclei, advanced evolution of massive stars, computational astrophysics, data mining, evolution of extragalactic systems, high-energy astrophysics, and star formation. Major areas of interest are:

The work of the Astronomy & Astrophysics Section is documented in detail in the annual reports:
