Approximately all information regarding the Universe comes from the learn of sunshine because it reaches us. notwithstanding, figuring out the data contained during this gentle calls for either telescopes able to resolving it into its part colors and an in depth wisdom of the quantum mechanical behaviour of atoms and molecules. This e-book, that's according to a third-year undergraduate path taught by means of the writer at college collage London, provides the elemental atomic and molecular physics essential to comprehend and interpret astronomical spectra. It explains how and how much details may be extracted from those spectra. modern astronomical spectra are used commonly to review the underlying atomic physics and illustrate the implications.
