Welcome to Astrophysics in Frankfurt!
A part of the research in this area is carried out in part at the Institute for Theoretical Physics (ITP) at the Goethe University (GU). The research includes compact stars and physics of dense matter, gravitational physics and general relativity, astroparticle physics, and cosmology. Strong emphasis is placed on interdisciplinary approaches to astrophysics theoretical physics.
Another part of research is carried out in Experimental Astrophysics at the Institute for Applied Physics. The research focuses on the nucleosynthesis of the elements in stars. The group carries out experiments to determine nuclear reaction rates and runs nucleosynthesis simulations in different astrophysical scenarios.
