Galaxy systems in the optical and infrared
by A. Biviano
Publisher: arXiv 2008
Number of pages: 60
In these three lectures a review is provided of the properties of galaxy systems as determined from optical and infrared measurements. Covered topics are: clusters identification, global cluster properties and their scaling relations, cluster internal structure and dynamics, and properties of cluster galaxy populations.

Galaxy halos provide important clues to the origin and evolution of galaxies. This volume brings together the latest simulations and deep observations of galaxy halos, focusing on the baryonic (star and gas) component of halos.

Dwarf galaxies provide opportunities for drawing inferences about the processes in the early universe by observing our Local Group and its vicinity. This issue is a snapshot of the current state of the art of dwarf-galaxy cosmology.

The Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies is a catalog of peculiar galaxies produced by Halton Arp. A total of 338 galaxies are presented in the atlas, which was originally published in 1966 by the California Institute of Technology.

I review the subject of the cosmological evolution of galaxies, including different aspects of growth in disk galaxies, by focussing on the angular momentum problem, mergers, and their by-products. I discuss the alternative to merger-driven growth.
