Friday, November 11th 2016
Speaker: John Phillips, MIfA, U. Minnesota
Subject: The Evolution of Systems of Satellite Galaxies in Local Group-like Environments.

The Local Group is fertile ground for study of many astrophysical topics, yet still much is unknown about how it came to be as we see it today. This talk will motivate the need to study the Local Group in context of similar sparse groups in the local Universe, and will discuss some recent findings concerning the effects that membership in structures like the Local Group have on galactic evolution.

The weekly calendar is also available via subscription to the physics-announce mailing list, and by RSS feed.
