Main research areas

The Institute conducts fundamental, exploratory and applied researches in the following areas:

  • physics of stellar atmospheres;
  • theoretical problems of physics and evolution of stars, stellar systems and interstellar medium;
  • the study of non-stationary stars;
  • physics of gravitating star and planetary systems;
  • study of exoplanets;
  • data support of astronomical researches (astronomical data banks);
  • theoretical and applied problems of astrometry, geodynamics and geophysics;
  • methods of observation of artificial and natural celestial bodies;
  • space research, ground-based support for space projects;
