SEMINAR: James Bullock [UC Irvine]
Dwarf Galaxies, the Local Group, and Cosmology
Nov 12, 2015 11:00 AM to Nov 12, 2015 12:00 PM at Building 8, Room 241
The Local Group and the tiny galaxies that surround the Milky Way provide unique and detailed data sets for testing ideas in cosmology and galaxy formation. In this talk I will discuss how numerical simulations coupled with local "near-field" observations are informing our understanding of dark matter, the formation of the first galaxies, and the physical processes that act at the threshold of galaxy formation.
