Themen für das Seminar Extragalaktische Astrophysik


Kurze Informationen zu den Vorträgen:

1. Vorträge können auf deutsch oder englisch gehalten werden (dasselbe gilt für die slides)
2. Vorträge DÜRFEN 25 Minuten nicht überschreiten. Dies wird streng kontrolliert.
3. Dies bedeutet, dass nicht mehr als 20 slides verwendet werden sollten.
4. Die slides senden Sie mir nach dem Vortrag als pdf zu. Eine weitere schriftl. Ausarbeitung ist nicht nötig.
5. Achten Sie auf Quellenangaben bei der Verwendung von Bildern etc.
