The Cost of Cosmic Real Estate: Galaxy Evolution in Dense Environments (IAP Activity)

Date: 
Tuesday, January 14,
2:00pm to 2:30pm
Speaker(s): 
Dr. Steven Ehlert

One of the largest and most important questions regarding galaxy evolution is the role of the local environment, primarily other nearby galaxies and diffuse gas. Observations of galaxies using the full ensemble of modern telescopes have demonstrated that galaxies are inextricably linked to their neighborhoods through a number of processes that span from star formation and black hole accretion to dark matter and dark energy. In this talk, I will discuss the myriad ways in which we observe galaxies coupling to their environments with a particular emphasis on galaxies in the densest real estate in the Universe: galaxy clusters.
