Departmental Colloquium


Probing for Galaxy Evolution in the Distant Universe

Marcin Sawicki
Herzberg Institute of Astrophysics
National Research Council

Time
 
Wed. October 8, 2003     1:30 PM     STIRLING A

Abstract
 

Advances in technology and technique over the last few years have now made it possible to routinely identify galaxies to look-back times when the Universe was only about a tenth of its present age and a hundredth of its present size. These high-redshift objects are vigorously star-forming and therefore the galaxy population at these early epochs should be undergoing rapid evolution. I will describe two very deep surveys that robustly probe for signs of this evolution within the high redshift galaxy population and I will discuss implications of these studies for our understanding of when and where the Universe formed its stars.

Refreshments will be available after the talk.

Dr. Sawicki is a candidate for the Astrophysics position in the Physics Department.
