About the Authors
  • Dwarf galaxies are important tools for understanding structure formation and galaxy evolution across cosmic time. These low-mass systems allow us to gain a detailed understanding of stellar, chemical, and dynamical properties in the nearby universe; they also provide a unique window into the complex physics of the early universe. The Proceedings of IAU Symposium 344 present our current understanding of dwarf galaxies, with sections dedicated to: Local Group dwarf galaxies; the interstellar medium and star formation in dwarfs; metallicity, massive stars, and chemical evolution; the dwarf galaxy–environment connection; low-mass galaxies at high redshift; and dwarfs as cosmological probes. Broad overviews from leaders in the field, detailed presentation of cutting-edge results, and short summaries of a wide range of work are included for each of these topics, suitable for both experts and newcomers to the field.

    • Presents a comprehensive, integration of our current knowledge of dwarf galaxies across cosmic time, over a range of environments, and at various spatial scales, providing cosmological context for results on low-mass galaxies
    • Connects the individual components of dwarf galaxies (stars, gas, chemical elements, dark matter) to their broader properties, scaling relations, and cosmological models, bridging numerous research communities
    • Includes high-level overviews written by leaders in the field, detailed reports on cutting edge research, and short summaries over a wide-range of topics, appealing to a range of readers, from students to experienced astronomers
