Arcetri Astrophysical Observatory

GALAXIES AND COSMOLOGY

The research carried out by the Arcetri extragalactic group revolves around understanding the physical processes that drive the fomation and evolution of galaxies and galaxy clusters and the baryon cycle within and outside galaxies. We approach these goals mostly from an observational point of view, covering virtually all spectral bands (with both photometry and spectroscopy) and different spatial scales. We aim at gathering a comprehensive phenomenology of the physical properties of galaxy components both in the local Universe and as a function of redshift and in different environments. This is key to constraining both internal processes (star formation regulation, chemical enrichment, feedback and secular evolution) and external processes (accretion, mergers and environmental interactions), aided by comparison with simulations and theoretical predictions. Our activity can be outlined in the following lines of research:
