The Third GUAtemalan School of Astrophysics (GUASA) focuses on the cutting edge developments and discoveries related to Compact Objects and astrophysical emissions related to them. There will be lectures that will cover a wide range of topics related to this exciting and developing branch of astrophysics. Starting with white dwarfs, neutron stars and cataclismic events related to them as well as how we can detect them. We will go deeper in our current understanding of these objects addressing topics such as structure, formation and the evolution. Last but not least, we will hold a series of sessions in which we will discuss the current status about emissions related to them and the way to detect them in different wavelenghts.
