*- Brice Ménard*
This is a graduate course at NTU taught by Ting-Wen Lan 藍鼎文
This course is designed for graduate students who have just started to conduct astronomical research. It will cover various topics from the principle of scientific methods, data visualization, basic data analysis techniques, to modern machine learning methods with a specific focus on applications in astronomy. Hands-on exercises with state-of-the-art astronomical datasets and current research questions will be included.
The goal of this course is to equip students with essential data analysis skill sets and concepts for conducting astronomical research.
(The cover: Northern Hemisphere of the sky as seen by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. Stellar streams stick out from the vast number of stars in this view, of which most lie within the Milky Way disk. The Palomar 5 stream is the densest of the stellar streams discovered so far and turned out to be a perfect scale and yardstick for our understanding of the Milky Way.
