Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 115

Description:
In these lectures aimed for non-specialists, the author reviews progress in understanding how galaxies form and evolve. Neither theory nor observations are well-developed in this frontier topic but the first results presented here provide important guidance on how we will use more powerful future facilities.
