Astronomy Colloquium
Dwarf Galaxies, the Local Group, and Cosmology
Date: Thursday, November 5th
Time: 3:30 pm
Place: 4421 Sterling Hall, Coffee 3:30 pm, Talk 3:45 PM
Speaker: James Bullock, UC Irvine
Abstract: 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.
