A critical phase in galaxy formation

Greg Stinson (MPIA Heidelberg) - December 1, 2014 at 12:10 pm

As galaxies grow and evolve, they go through a violent phase of their evolution where intense star formation drives outflows. I will examine this phase using cosmological galaxy formation simulations. The simulations show that starbursts and outflows have implications for many observed properties of galaxies including their gaseous halos, morphology, potential, and star formation history.

The seminar will be held in B-1 Hearst Field Annex.
