“In astrophysics we cannot perform experiments so we just have to extract information from the light the star emits”

Interview with Mats Carlsson

Professor at the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics at the University of Oslo (Norway) and director of the center of excellence "Rosseland Center for Solar Physics", Mats Carlsson uses computer simulations to manage giant amounts of data in order to shed light about his field of study: stellar atmospheres codes. In the XXIX Canary Islands Winter School of Astrophysics, organized by the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) this year, Carlsson will explain how to obtain information about the light that escapes from steller atmospheres and other issues related to radiative transfer. >> Read the interview
