Elementary processes in astrophysics (NAST024)

These pages provide online material for the lecture that has to be moved to the virtual space during the COVID-19 crisis in 2020. It does not stand as a full replacement of the course. Students are supposed to go through the supplied materials and ask questions via e-mail during the period of closed lecture rooms.
