    Astrophysics is the branch of astronomy that employs the principles of physics and chemistry "to ascertain the nature of the heavenly bodies, rather than their positions or motions in space." Among the objects studied are the Sun, other stars, galaxies, extrasolar planets, the interstellar medium and the cosmic microwave by: 1. If all the interstellar gas within the Galaxy were spread out smoothly, there would be only about one atom of gas per cm 3 in interstellar space. (In contrast, the air in the room where you are reading this book has roughly 10 19 atoms per cm 3.)The dust grains are even scarcer.

To many astrophysicists, Stellar Polarimetry is a Cinderella subject with insignificant interest and, at the same time, being so esoteric as to be ignored and left alone.

Grain geometry plays an important role in determining the optical properties, and scattering and absorption of starlight will produce radiative torques which may drive grains to.

The measurement of polarization provides a powerful diagnostic tool for the study of stars, interstellar matter and extragalactic objects. It yields information on the geometric structure of evolving astronomical sources that can not be obtained in any other way.

Polarimetry is the measurement and interpretation of the polarization of transverse waves, most notably electromagnetic waves, such as radio or light waves. Typically polarimetry is done on electromagnetic waves that have traveled through or have been reflected, refracted or diffracted by some material in order to characterize that object.

Polarimetry has played a key role in the development of modern astronomy, providing insight into physical processes occurring in systems that range from our own solar system to high-redshift galaxies. the emissive component of polarization is larger than the absorptive component produced by the intervening interstellar medium.

This is a conference in a series of such gatherings that took place in Bonn (), Montreal () and Bologna (). Astronomers and astrophysicists working in the field have come together to present new observations and to discuss the physical implications.I have assembled this collection of problems to accompany Physics of the Interstellar and Inter-galactic Medium.

Although these problems do not cover all topics in the text, I hope that they will prove useful to both students and instructors. From time to time the problem collection will be updated with new problems, and with corrections as needed.
