Galaxies Lunch Topic Series / Fall 2014

Galaxies Lunch is held every second Thursday at noon in room 1402 (Astronomy Library). Please bring a lunch and join us if
you are interested in and/or study:

1) Observations of
2) Simulations of
3) Theories of

galaxy formation, growth, and evolution. It is an informal meeting with an aim to bring together various viewpoints
and expertise in the areas of galactic and extragalactic astronomy. The meetings cover a range of ideas including star
clusters and gas clouds as integral parts in the understanding of galaxy structure and evolution up to how galaxies
themselves serve as parts of the Universe in a cosmological context.

We will select a couple of people each week to lead an INFORMAL discussion for every other week with the
understanding that anyone should bring up science ideas, pertinent to the group, at any time. The season's
