## Lecture on Compact Stars

The lecture "Compact Stars" is addressed to advanced undergraduate (MSc level) and graduate students of physics and astronomy. It does not assume a thorough prior background in astronomy, astrophysics, or general relativity. It is assumed that students are familiar with thermodynamics, electromagnetism, and special relativity. Other concepts, as well as phenomena and techniques related to theoretical astrophysics and observations of compact stars, are introduced during the lecture course.
