About the Authors
  • IAU Symposium 309 contains contributions on the timely theme of spatially and energetically resolved properties of galaxies. New technologies in 3D spectroscopy in the optical and near-infrared regimes, and radio interferometry, allow for the first time the efficient mapping of stars, gas and dust in galaxies near and far. This volume demonstrates how detailed measurements of individual objects are complemented by surveys aiming at a full census of galaxies across the local Universe. Reaching out to the limits of the Universe, the evolution of spatially resolved properties is traced throughout our whole cosmic history. In parallel with this, new computer technology and highly advanced algorithms are exploited for detailed simulations to probe the underlying physical and cosmological connections. This volume benefits astronomers and graduate students working in areas relating to galaxy formation and evolution, star formation, dust and stellar populations.

    • Features cross-disciplinary perspectives into current observational techniques using 3D spectroscopy, radio interferometry and new computer technology
    • Presents a comprehensive overview into the mapping of galaxies which will also appeal to those who wish to expand their understanding of astronomical fields beyond their own research area
    • Draws together contributions from leading, global researchers on the intrinsic properties of galaxies and their evolution
