11am–12pm 28 April 2016
The first billion years after the Big Bang poses many open questions: How and when the first stars and galaxies were formed? How does the interplay between baryonic and dark...
11am–12pm 21 April 2016
We present a series of our studies on how HI is accreted, distributed and connected with the formation of optical structures in massive disk galaxies in the low redshift universe...
