Carroll & Ostlie: An Introduction to Modern Astrophysics

Here are my solutions to various problems in the textbook An Introduction to Modern Astrophysics, by Bradley W. Carroll and Dale A. Ostlie, 2nd edition (Pearson Education, 2007). Obviously I can't offer any guarantee that all the solutions are actually correct, but I've given them my best shot.

These solutions are the only ones that I've worked out so far, so please don't ask me to post "the rest of the chapters" as I haven't worked on those yet. I will get to them eventually.
