Project "Stellar Magnetism"
Main subject of our studies are stars and the systems they build. The ultimate goal of these research activities is to gain new knowledge about the processes, phenomena and physical laws that characterize the key phases of stellar evolution – from the very early stages of star formation till the full exhaustion of thermonuclear fuel in stellar cores.
-Physical characteristics of hot, massive, high luminosity stars and the dynamical parameters of stellar winds that accompany their evolution;
-Chemical composition of stellar atmospheres and its variations due to the influence of circumstellar matter or tidal interactions in binary systems;
-Processes of mass transfer, formation and development of accretion discs in close binary systems with compact component;
-Dynamics and physical characteristics of sub-stellar systems - objects with extremely low luminosity, and planetary systems that orbit stars other than our Sun;
-Characteristics of stellar activity we observe in stars and stellar systems, which is typical for early stages of stellar evolution;
-Manifestation of stellar magnetism and the role that magnetic fields play in processes that feature the late stages of stellar evolution.
