Galaxy Formation and Evolution

Hyron Spinrad

Galaxy Formation and EvolutionUnderstanding how the form and structure of galaxies have evolved has profound implications for our knowledge of how the Universe itself has been shaped over the past 12 billion years or so. This book discusses the evolution of the galaxies in detail and, whilst acknowledging the boundaries of what we know about the most distant galaxies, makes important comparisons between nearby galaxies and the most distant currently observed.

Written by one of the leading authorities in this field, Galaxy Formation and Evolution
