Publisher: MDPI AG 2018
Number of pages: 232
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. In particular, deep, wide, and detailed observations of galaxy halos beyond the Local Group are becoming more ubiquitous.

In these lectures aimed for non-specialists, the author reviews progress in understanding how galaxies form and evolve. The first results presented here provide important guidance on how we will use more powerful future facilities.

The main purpose of this volume is to reproduce and make available for study, the larger and more interesting nebulae and clusters, sixty-eight in number. James Edward Keeler was the director of the Lick observatory 1898 - 1900.
Gamma-ray bursts are flashes of gamma rays associated with extremely energetic explosions in distant galaxies. They are the brightest electromagnetic events known to occur in the universe. Bursts can last from ten milliseconds to several minutes.
