Recent publications
In 1958 our department was created as a department of variable stars with the purpose of more intensive researches of various classes of variable stars, whose studies have begun in our institute at the end of the nineteenth century. From middle of the sixtieth years of the twentieth century the basic researches of a department were directed on study of young non-stationary stars in star-forming regions. In connection with expansion of a circle of scientific tasks solved in a department, it was renamed into a department of astrophysical researches at the end of 2001.


Current fields of research:

  • PMS stars: Herbig Ae/Be stars, T Tauri stars, FUors and related objects
  • Binary stars
  • Spotted stars: RS CVn, BY Dra, FK Com stars
  • Star-forming regions
  • X-ray sources
  • Active galaxy nuclei, quasars and blazars
  • Open star clusters
