    Book Description: Galaxies, along with their underlying dark matter halos, constitute the building blocks of structure in the Universe. Of all fundamental forces, gravity is the dominant one that drives the evolution of structures from small density seeds at early times to the galaxies we see today.   Yet as Hyron Spinrad describes in his book Galaxy Formation and Evolution, often this is the broadest amount of information available for whole galaxies. In .

    Collected in this volume are the review papers from the Space Telescope Science Institute symposium on Clusters of Galaxies held in May Fifteen experts in the field have presented summaries of our current understanding of the formation and evolution of clusters and their constituent galaxies. Formation and Evolution. Here we will talk about the formation and evolution of two of the three main types of galaxies, spirals and ellipticals. There is still much astronomers don't know about the process, but we'll give you their best guesses. Galaxies are thought to have begun from large irregular clouds of hydrogen and helium.

Emphasizing both observational and theoretical aspects, the book provides a coherent introduction to the broad range of science underlying the formation and evolution of galaxies.

About the Author Houjun Mo is Professor of Astrophysics at the University of by:   Of all the fundamental forces, gravity is the dominant one that drives the evolution of structures from small density seeds to the galaxies we see today. The interactions among myriads of stars, or dark matter particles, in a gravity-based structure produce a system with fascinating implications for thermodynamics, including both similarities and fundamental differences.5/5(2).

Some stars may have formed even before the first star clusters and galaxies came into existence. Some galaxy-galaxy collisions triggered massive bursts of star formation, and some of these led to the formation of black holes. In that rich, crowded environment, black holes found constant food and grew in mass.

The goal of this book is to show how physical principles can be used to understand the for- mation and evolution of galaxies.

Viewed as a physical process, galaxy formation and evolution involve two different aspects: (i) initial and boundary conditions; and (ii) physical processesCited by: Synopsis The rapidly expanding field of galaxy formation lies at the interfaces of astronomy, particle physics, and cosmology.
