Three Ways To Feed A Galaxy (Speaker: Mary Putman)

Tuesday November 12, 2013 4:00 pm

A galaxy has multiple fueling reservoirs to draw from to continue its star formation. These include material from the gaseous halo surrounding it, the accretion of smaller galaxies, and recycled material from stars. In this talk I will give an overview of the Galaxy’s fueling mechanisms and discuss the impact of new observations and simulations on our understanding.
