Small book cover: Understanding Galaxy Formation and Evolution

Understanding Galaxy Formation and Evolution
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 50

Description:
The old dream of integrating into one the study of micro and macrocosmos is now a reality. Cosmology, astrophysics, and particle physics intersect in a scenario (but still not a theory) of cosmic structure formation and evolution called Lambda Cold Dark Matter (LCDM) model.
