Galaxies Lunch Topic Series / Spring 2016

Galaxies Lunch is held every Thursday at 12 PM 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 week with the
understanding that anyone should bring up science ideas, pertinent to the group, at any time. Meetings will be
an hour divided between 30 minutes for the opening talk and 30 minutes for science ideas. The season's
