The interstellar medium (ISM) is integral to the evolution of galaxies. Stars are born in cold molecular clouds. Hot stars return mass via stellar winds and at their death (supernovae). Other stars end as white dwarfs, ejecting considerable mass also. The energy and momentum inputs from these processes and the chemical enrichment (nucleosynthesis) makes the study of the ISM both fascinating and challenging. This graduate level course squarely deals with the Galactic interstellar medium (ISM) and will touch upon the circum-galactic Medium (CGM) of our Galaxy. The course is centered around understanding and gaining mastery of key physical processes (over descriptive astronomy).
