Rossi Lectures: A Physical Approach to Large-scale Structure and Galaxy Formation. Lecture 3. Making Real Galaxies

Making real galaxies as we know them is much more complex than understanding the origin of the larger scale structures within which they were formed. The process of structure formation needs to be followed into the non-linear regime and then many competing feed-back processes need to be incorporated into the models. Many new clues are coming from observations of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation and of very distant galaxies and quasars. The many different constraints on the processes involved in Galaxy Formation will be reviewed and an attempt made to put some order into the large volumes of new data now available.
