  • Institute for Astrophysics of Vienna University (Austria). The assignment of the head of Astrophysics Department  Melekh B.Ya. (10.11.2019-22.11.2019) and junior scientific researcher Buhajenko O.S. (10-29.11.2019) with the aim of completion the project on gas and dust photoionization analysis of chemodynamical simulation results for the evolution of dwarf galaxies with active stellar formation, as well as starting the new one on the detailed accounting for diffusive ionazing radiation in the multicomponent photoionization modelling of nebular components’ radiation of the given galaxies. Also, it is planned the discussion of new future common projects in order to choose the most perspective ones.
