Star formation in galaxies: from small to large scales

Star formation is a vibrant field in contemporary astrophysics, combining a rich diversity of physics and chemistry, sophisticated simulations with supercomputers, and cutting edge observational facilities on the ground and in space to tackle both fundamental and complex problems related to the origin of stars and galaxies in our relative neighbourhood – the Milky Way galaxy – and in the distant Universe.  Continua a leggere Star formation in galaxies: from small to large scales
