Galaxies at High Redshifts (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


A systematic review of our current knowledge of the development of the universe by the observation of galaxies at high redshifts. The monograph describes the most important physical principles that are incorporated into models of the evolution of individual galaxies and of the galaxy population as a whole. These are linked in turn to empirical results so as to derive a basic understanding of galaxy evolution and to identify the outstanding questions about the formation and evolution of galaxies. In so doing, the book makes use of a wide range of observational and theoretical techniques, along with their strengths and limitations. The introductory methods chapter makes this particularly suitable for young researchers entering this rapidly evolving field, as well as master and PhD students.
