|Rational for the Workshop: Over the years, the physics of compact objects has become more and more interesting especially after launching of several satellites such as RXTE, SWIFT, INTEGRAL, MAXI and more recently ASTROSAT. Theory and observations have progressed rapidly in parallel. It is thus evident that we will have exciting times in days ahead in X-rays Astronomy. Several theoretical models such as DISKBB+PL, COMPTST, TCAF etc. have been implemented with NASA XSPEC Software in order to analyze these data. With Indian satellite ASTROSAT and Indian model TCAF, ASI is the right platform to have extensive discussion on the physics of Compact objects. These progresses are attracting many students from the University sector as well as from institutes all over India.
We propose to have a special workshop on the theoretical models and observational progresses in X-ray astronomy of compact objects. Hands on training will be done. Discussion session will be kept extensive so as to get queries clarified from the floor to all speakers. The participants would be limited to 40. They would be selected based on their background from the list obtained after candidates make their choice during registration.
