Objective: Provide the observational constraints for the chemical composition of disks and exoplanets
Apply novel statistical and machine learning algorithms to the data interpretation in conjunction with complex models. Compare the strengths and weaknesses of simplified models with the self-consistent forward models. Train students in advanced statistical methods and large astronomical databases.
The starter reading kit:
ESA mission Ariel – Atmospheric Remote-sensing Infrared Exoplanet Large-survey
Ariel is the first space mission dedicated to measuring the chemical composition and thermal structures of a large well constructed sample of transiting and eclipsing exoplanets, enabling planetary science far beyond the boundaries of the Solar System.
