The Gravitational Lensing model simulates the result of the deflection of photons as they pass through the warped space-time of a gravitational field of stars, clusters of galaxies or dark matter. In the simulation you can examine the effect caused by a gravitational lens in three different cases: 1. A point-mass lens and a point mass source. 2. A point-mass lens and an extended source. 3. A softened isothermal sphere lens and an extended source. You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item. The Gravitational Lensing model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool. It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the ejs_ehu_general_relativity_Gravitational_Lensing.jar file will run the program if Java is installed. Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).

Quantitative introduction to physics of the solar system, stars, interstellar medium, the Galaxy, and Universe, as determined from a variety of astronomical observations and models. Topics: planets, planet formation; stars, the Sun, "normal" stars, star formation; stellar evolution, supernovae, compact objects (white dwarfs, neutron stars, and black holes), plusars, binary X-ray sources; star clusters, globular and open clusters; interstellar medium, gas, dust, magnetic fields, cosmic rays; distance ladder; galaxies, normal and active galaxies, jets; gravitational lensing; large scaling structure; Newtonian cosmology, dynamical expansion and thermal history of the Universe; cosmic microwave background radiation; big-bang nucleosynthesis. No prior knowledge of astronomy necessary. Not usable as a restricted elective by physics majors. (less)
