New Insights on Galaxy Formation from Comparisons of Simulated and Observed Galaxies (speaker: Joel Primack, University of California, Santa Cruz)

Abstract:Computer simulations and theoretical understanding have now reached a stage where simulations are increasingly able to tackle the complexity of galaxy formation and evolution. This talk will describe in particular…

Astrophysics Colloquium–Order Out of Chaos: Towards Understanding Galaxy Formation in the Cosmological Context (Speaker: Andrey Kravtsov, University of Chicago)

Abstract: Galaxy formation is a complex, hierarchical, highly non-linear process, which involves gravitational collapse of dark matter and baryons, supersonic, highly compressible and turbulent flows of gas, star formation, stellar…
